KSC Sports Coaching

Today we were very lucky to have some students from Kyneton Secondary College come to our school and coach us playing basketball. We started with some warm up games, then the KSC students ran some basketball relays. We split up into two groups and had some small games.





We had lots of fun working with the high school students, learning more about basketball and working on our motor skills. We think the KSC students did a great job coaching us and hope they do well in their assessment.

What is a sport that you haven’t played before but would like to learn?

Life Education Van

2015-06-22 10.40.38Yesterday (Monday the 24th) the grade 5/ 6s went to the Life Education van to learn about drugs and what affect they have on you. We played all sorts of games for example, a game where we had to sort out which drugs were stimulants and depressants. Another game we played is where we had to sort out if they had drugs in them or they were drug free. We watched a video about this girl called Maya and her friends went to a party with her sister Mel who got drunk, we had to decide the least risky option to get home. We decided to call the parents was the safest option. At the end of the the session we got to meet Harold the Giraffe. Written by Dom and Thor

What is something you learnt from the session?
Give an example of a drug we learnt about? Is it a depressant or a stimulant?

Responsible Pet Program

2015-03-16 12.28.50

On Monday the 16th we completed a Responsible Pet Program session. Sharon and Chester came in to talk to us about being a responsible pet owner.

One important thing we learnt was what to do if an angry dog approaches us.

Step 1 – Stand still: because if you start running the dog will panic and chase after you.

Step 2 – Hands down: If your hands are in the air the dog will think you’re trying to harm it, if your hands are in your pockets the dog will think you’re hiding something and will attack you.

Step 3 – Quiet as a mouse: Dogs have better hearing than us, so yelling will hurt their ears and it would alarm them.

Step 4 – Look at the ground: Dog’s find it very offensive if you stare them in the eyes so they will get very angry. Then wait until the dog goes away.


We also learnt how to approach a happy dog, and that we need to ask the owners permission to pet their dog.

Step 1 – Walk up slowly and stop. You should be a lead length away.

Step 2 – Ask the owners permission. If you don’t ask the owner the dog may get scared.

Step 3 – Let the dog smell the back of your hand (closed fist, thumb in), so they can identify you.

Step 4 – Step to the side of the dog and stroke gently from the collar to the start of the tail. This way the dog will not get scared and you are safely away from their head.


My favourite part was when we got to meet Chester, he licked me -Tahlia

My favourite part was all of it, because I had so much fun doing it. Especially when Chester licked my hand.-Jasmyn

Visit of Joe Grbac

Yesterday a Senior Leading Constable named Joe from the Kyneton Police came to our school to tell us about his job. He told us about some of his experiences  and things that he has done. He told us a lot about what he liked about his job and what he found really challenging.

He also talked about Cybersafety and gave us some tips. Joe said “Never say anything offensive over the internet, phone or face to face because anyone can see it and report it”. He also said “Just because a person makes a dumb decision doesn’t mean they’re a bad person”.  It was lots of fun having Joe come and visit and it was a good opportunity to ask some questions.

We asked a few people from our class about what they thought and this is what they said:

I think Joe is a funny, kind person.   ~ Tom ~

Joe loves to be with kids. He has been working with them for 18 years.   ~ Coby ~

A friendly police officer named Joe started his career when he was 25 and now as a Senior Leading Constable is still on patrol making kids laugh and educating them about being respectful and caring. He is respectful of all people, no matter what their background.   ~ Connor ~

Joe joined the police because he wanted to help people.   ~ Jake I. ~
