The world is threatening to lull to sleep The inborn forces of my soul. Now my memory, come forth, shine out from spirit depths, Invigorate my inner sight, which only by the strength of will is able to sustain itself.

Class 3 Trading Stall

Last Thursday a highly successful Trading Stall was hosted by Class 3 and enjoyed by the whole school. Lunchtime at the kitchen was a hive of activity and culinary delight as we traded treats made from our winter harvest of silverbeet, kale, cauliflower, spring onions, lettuce, beetroot and coriander. So much love went into all parts of the process, from the design and preparation of the garden beds, the planting and growing, harvesting and baking/preparing. All of which was thoroughly enjoyed in the experience of eating the tasty treats but very little put back into compost!

It felt like we feasted and fed the whole school and there were zero leftovers!  In exchange for a treat from the delicious menu the whole school were asked to trade their services of wheelbarrowing a load of soil or rolling a ball of wool. Some donated gold coins. The samosas, spinach rolls, rice paper wraps and beetroot cupcakes proved so popular that many students went back for more trades to fill their appetites. 

Now our baskets are brimming with balls of wool and half our soil has been shifted. A great effort by all. I could not have done this without the help of the Class 3 parents and children, all of whom were fantastic. Thank you to all the teachers and students for their support. We all made the day awesome! 

Class 2: Celtic Mythology

Class Two have carried on with their literacy work, recalling angel sounds learned from Class One. They have been exploring the longer component (EE Sound) in words such as ‘Tree’.  These Angel lessons of beauty, complement the overarching and rich tapestry of Celtic mythology, with its focus on Scottish and Irish folktales. The children were quite taken by stories of timeless selkies, including ‘The Selkie Girl and The Otter King’ and the deep life sustaining relationships that exist in kindness. Other stories included tales of dragons, mermaids, giants, fairies, wee folk, faithful shepherd dogs, a Water Kelpie, and a girl with a Rashie (Reed) Coat. The class favourite was undoubtedly  – Nessie of Loch Ness.

After exploring ‘The Giant’s Causeway’, Robbie Keane added another dimension to the classroom experience via his artful gift of telling Irish folktales. These stories have mostly detailed the great Irish hero – Fionn Mac Cumhail and the Fianna band. It has been intriguing to listen to Robbie speak on the life of Fionn, including Robbie’s account of the ‘Knowledge of the Salmon’ story, whereby the young Fionn gained great wisdom by biting on his thumb when preparing the legendary salmon for the wise poet Finegas.

All of these stories seek to lay a rich foundation for not only academic learning, but also a deep spiritual knowledge that is purposefully inherent within the curriculum. The children have demonstrated a rich understanding through many forms of artistic expression. Further work will take us into Irish dance and song as we prepare for our Celtic Class play.

Class Four – Norse Mythology

Around the age of 10 a change can be observed in the child’s relationship with the world. The child confronts the world as a more confident self, confident in a newly established relationship with their surrounds. Physical development brings a new strength and agility. Norse Mythology provides  literature that reflects confidence through the imagery of a mythological world. Children are inspired by the range of emotion, by the sophistication of the narratives, the alliterative verse and by the strength of purpose of the characters.

 Norse Myths have not only filled our Main Lesson. Eurythmy, Singing and Drama lessons have also had this topic as a feature. This full immersion has had an effect of centring the children a little more firmly in their lives, I look forward to our continued learning.

In the beginning there were two worlds. One frozen, Nifelheim, and one of fire, Muspelheim. These worlds were separated by a great abyss, Gunungagap.

Over time a great icy river began to flow, out of this ice two shapes appeared, these shapes were alive. Ymir, the great frost giant and a large cow, Audhumbla.

The slaying of Ymir by Odin, Lodur and Hoenir.




Next the Aesir gods created noon and dark and dawn on earth.

The evolution of humankind.

Yggdrasil – The World Tree.

Odin – The All Father

Thor – The Thunder God

Loki – Shape Shifter, Sly Trickster.


Blessed are the Soup Makers ! Soup Day Information

The primary school Soup Day will commence on Wednesday 19th July.  Yallingup Wood Fired Bread will once again be donating their delicious & nutritious bread. The bread along with butter will be at the school kitchen on the morning of soup day.  

Soups are required to be made in the school kitchen so please come to school with time to prepare, cook & serve your soup -Lunch is served at 12:45 pm for all primary classes. Please cook enough soup to feed around 40 hungry children (10 litres-around 45 cups) this is important as we have had days when we have run out of soup. The P&F kitchen is fully equipped so you will not need to bring anything other than your fresh ingredients. Please remember to confer with your ‘soup buddy’ to make sure that one person prepares a vegetarian & gluten/dairy free soup. If you are unable to prepare & cook the soup on the day, you can come in the day before to do it & leave it in the fridge, but please ensure you leave enough time to come in on the day to reheat, serve your soup and to cut up and butter the bread. *BOTH SOUPS ARE REQUIRED TO BE FREE OF PEANUT’S and BRAZIL NUTS*

We have found that it is helpful after you have done your soup roster to call the parent next on the list, giving them a friendly reminder that they are on the roster the following week.

If you are unable to make your rostered day, please make arrangements ahead of time to swap with someone else on the roster or another parent in the school. Please inform Alice Leavy of any changes on 0419 956 576

Soup costs $2.50 per child per week; No money will be taken on the day. If you haven’t already returned the payment form (available on school stream or from the school office) please do so as soon as possible.   

As well as giving our children a delicious warm hearty meal, this is a fantastic fundraiser for our school, the P&F thank you all ahead of time, for your time spent & generosity in making this fundraiser successful.

Remember when paying online please clearly state the full name of your child and the words ice-cream/soup and please only use the P&F Bank account.
