Teaching staff are busy after school again today. Focus is on Literacy and Behaviour Expectations. We never stop learning at Geographe Primary.
Today many of our classes took their lessons outside and enjoyed "Outdoors Classroom Day". Here are some pictures from the day.
Did you know that we have some great STEM resources in our school? The children will be getting more opportunities to engage with some of the awesome resources we have been able to purchase through the generosity of our fabulous P&C. Ms Anderson and Mrs Kirk were having as much fun as the Year 2s when I popped in today to see We Do Lego in action. We also have 2, 3D Printers, supplied by Western Power, who are supporting our Circuit Breakers program.
We are so excited to announce that we are one of 20 schools selected to take part in Circuit Breakers next term.Circuit Breakers are thinkers, makers and innovators. Circuit Breakers are students who look differently at the world around them, and find ways to bring their ideas to life.
Circuit Breakers is an exciting new engineering outreach program for primary school students in years 4 – 6.
This 10 week STEM program for primary schools will help develop knowledge and skills with a focus on electrical engineering using 3D printers.
Mrs Kealy and Miss Anderson will be heading to Perth tomorrow to find out more about the program! Find out more at
Geographe Primary hosted a "Seeing it in Action Day" today. Fifteen teachers from schools around the state visited Geographe to learn more about effective teaching practices in spelling and vocabulary and had the opportunity to visit classrooms and see lessons in action. Mrs Jodie Goss, Mrs Sue-Ellen Phillips and Miss Tew for opened their classrooms and demonstrated some key elements in these areas. Ms Jennifer Moyle also shared her incredible wealth of English knowledge with the group. Geographe Primary School is a Teacher Development School in English and the Seeing it in Action Day is part of that initiative.
