Last week we received an exciting email advising us that we had been selected to represent our country and state in a global climate action project. There will be over 200 schools from more than 59 countries involved. The project will start in October and run for the first three weeks of Term 4.
While we await further information we have convinced Mr Rob Drummond, who has been acknowledged by the Geography Teachers’ Association of Victoria as an outstanding Geography teacher, and is also a world renowned photographer specialising in birds to be our local celebrity. You can see examples of his work here.
We are all very excited. This links to recent work with Year 5 Library on the United Nations Sustainable Development goals.
Last week we also linked the content to Book Week through sharing The Patchwork Bike by Maxine Beneba Clark, Illustrated by Van T Rudd, which has been nominated for best Picture Book of the Year.
