Fibre Art

Jethro’s mum Barb visited the Grade 2’s to talk to us about fibre art. She showed us how to spin wool and we got to see wool made out of sheep fleece, goat fleece, plants and even milk!

There are lots of things that can be knitted, crocheted, spun and created using fibre.


Aussie Waterlife

Andrew Barber from the Colac Otway Shire came to visit Elliminyt Primary School and brought some creatures that live in our waterways. We got to see some baby dragonfly larvae, yabbies and an eel.

We learnt about carp and how to cast a fishing line safely.


Aussie Dress Up Day and Picnic

The Preps, 1s and 2s came to school dressed up as Australian animals, icons and personalities. We had a parade in the morning to see everyone’s costume.

After school we had an Aussie picnic with some Granny Smith apples, lamingtons, sausage rolls, pavlova and cordial.


We played some Aussie games like the thong toss and Aussie animal relay. We also answered some Australian trivia questions.

After the games we went to the EPEE Centre and sang some Aussie folk songs and listened to some Bush Poetry.
