Amazing discoveries

Today 3/4NB had the opportunity to use a discovery box from the Museum of Victoria. It was so exciting to have the chance to explore real artifacts from Aboriginal culture.

Mother’s Day

Sunday, May 10th, was Mother’s Day- a special day to remember you Mum or another woman in your life who cares for you. It is a good day to remember Grandmas, Aunties and Step Mums too.

What did you do for your mum on mother’s day to make her feel special?
