Planet Ark National Tree Day

On Friday the 24th of July it was Planet Ark National Tree Day. On this wonderful day full of life, all of the students at Berwick Lodge Primary School joined in the fun and we supported Planet Ark in there wonderful day. We used milk cartons as a planter box so we could have a little plant to take home and care for. I believe that everyone had a fun and enjoyable Planet Ark National Tree Day.

Planet Ark Day

On Friday 24th of July Berwick Lodge Primary School students and teachers participated in Planet Ark National Tree Day. From Prep to grade 6 students planted seeds into a milk carton. The first thing we did was decorate the milk carton. The second thing we did was actually plant the seed. We did this activity with our buddies after we had finished we had lunch.

In 2015 over 1.3 million seeds were planted by more than 3.5 million people who participated in Planet Ark Day. Overall they have planted over 22 million seeds since 1996.

Overall I think that the day was a complete success I had a lot of fun with my prep buddy.

Planet Ark


On Friday the 24th of July, it was Planet Ark Day! We were celebrating at school it was very fun planting some plants for Planet Ark Day we also made some plant pots using old milk cartons and icy-pole sticks. what we did was we got our milk carton and covered them with the icy-pole sticks, we used PVA for the glue it took 24 hours for the glue to stiffen the glue and make sure that the icy-pole sticks are secure on the milk carton.


In the middle session 6N went to go and see our wonderful prep grade PT we helped out our buddies by gluing some of the icy-pole sticks once we did that we went outside to eat but overall I had a great day 😉

Planet Ark Day 2015

On the 24th of July 2015 our school had its annual planet ark day where we respect the planet and all its beings that we share it with.


Our school did some fun activities like designing our own personal planting pots. We used recycled milk cartons (kindly donated by Mr Naismith) as a base, then we decorated with coloured icy pole sticks. In the afternoon we planted some plants in the decorated cartons and from then, they’ve been growing really well!


We also spent time with our wonderful buddy grade prep T, where we helped them finish off their amazing planter pots.


It was a great planet ark day and we all had an amazing time and our school now knows what a wonderful world we live in.

Planet Ark Day

On the 24th of July 2015, the students and teachers at B.L.P.S celebrated Planet Ark Day. We celebrated by decorating plant boxes for ourselves and planting plants in them.

We also had lunch with our buddies and decorated their own plant boxes, with icy pole sticks. We were encouraged to wear green (since that is Planet Arks main colour) on the day and bring a gold coin donation. Overall I loved decorating plant boxes and helping our buddies decorate their own plant boxes

Why is ICT important?

Why is ICT important?

Contemporary research has shown that ICT can lead to improved student learning and better teaching methods. A report made by the National Institute of Multimedia Education in Japan, acknowledged that an increase in student exposure to educational ICT through curriculum integration has a significant and positive impact on student achievement, especially in terms of “KnowledgeComprehension” · “Practical skill” and “Presentation skill” in subject areas such as mathematics, science, and social studies.

CYC City Camp

My highlight for my Grade 6 year would be the CYC City Camp. I chose this as my highlight because it was such a        great camp and the fact that we were moving around every day non stop. I loved all the places that we went to like the Shrine of Remembrence, Parliment House, The Crown Casino Bowling Centre and my personal favourite was the Melbourne Star just that glorious view was amazing but the lights on the star were fernomanal. All in all it was fantastic expierence and I had a great time.Capture
