On Friday the 12th June, we had an Arts Council Performance called Our Story.

The two presenters were extremely funny at telling the history of Australia in a funny, light hearted manner. Some favourite parts of the performance where when Neville balanced a chair on his chin, the army man lost his head (and not in battle) and Neville named our current Prime Minister as Toe, Knee, Ab (as in abdominal muscles) Butt. Hee Hee.IMG_7560 IMG_7565 IMG_7569 IMG_7573 IMG_7575 IMG_7577 IMG_7580 IMG_7581 IMG_7584 IMG_7586 IMG_7588 IMG_7592

We started with sugar, golden syrup and water and put them into a saucepan. We wanted the sugar to dissolve. It had to simmer for five minutes before we could add the bi carb soda. When we added the bi carb soda it fizzed up and made a GAS. It also made honeycomb. Our first batch didn’t work. We hope the next two batches did.


Today is Ketzia’s last day with us. It is also her last teaching placement. During her time with us we have done lots of great things together.

In Maths, Ketzia did some measuring activities with us. She had us measuring the length of objects and identifying whether items were long or short. This week in Maths we made column and pictographs.IMG_7465

In Science, we worked on gases and discovered there was Carbon Dioxide in Soda Water. We even made sultanas dance.


We read The Hungry Giant. It is a great book. Jamie loves it. In it he has a Bommy Knocker and he is cranky because he is so hungry.

We also learnt that it is important to be Resilient.

Today is Ketzia’s last day and we looked at Resilience with her. We also did measuring, long, tall and short. We have also learnt liquids, solids and gases. We all love you. We will all miss you. From Cohen

My favourite activity with Ketzia was learning resilience. From Finn

Ketzia is kind. Ketzia is really nice to us. I think she will be a good teacher when she grows up. From Lirra

We like Ketzia. From Kade

Ketzia helped us to make goo and she taught us how to make sultanas dance. From Kyra

When Ketzia came to our classroom we learnt all about graphs. This is something all about graphs that Ketzia taught us. You have to have the names of what the graph is about and we’ve got a Favourite Colour graph in our classroom. The favourite colour in our classroom is aqua. From Nina



Mallacoota P-12 College State Surfing Titles 2015

On the 29th of April, 7 secondary students (Alanna, Hannah, Chiara, Brodie, Tom, Michael and Noah) from Mallacoota P-12 College left for Torquay to compete in the annual State surfing titles. On Friday the 1st, we competed in the teams event against other public schools in Victoria. Mallacoota came 6th overall in the team events. The Singles titles were on Saturday and Sunday. Noah, Tom and Brodie all competed in the singles titles. Noah and Tom did really well against the level of competition in their heats. Meanwhile Brodie came 2nd in the Under 19s girls final. Over all it was a great experience, so thankyou to Mr Berry for organising; Kathy and Marty Scott for driving us there and back.

Michael: The trip was such a great experience. It was really good surfing different breaks that we hadn’t surfed before, as well as visiting renowned breaks like Bells and Bird-rock. But the highlight for me would have to of been the Rip curl outlet store, such good bargains!

Brodie: I had a really great time surfing and finding new waves at a different break and surfing with the great group of people who I travelled down with. The competition probably wasn’t my favourite bit of the camp but the free surfs were wicked. I look forward to next year!

Hannah: I had heaps of fun on the trip surfing new breaks and shopping. Hanging out with everyone on the trip was a blast as well.
I thought the whole trip was so much fun and a great experience.

Alanna: I dint want to leave! I’m so thankful that I got to share and experience the magic of Torquay with all these energetic motivated sea monkeys. A huge thankyou to Kathy and Marty Scott for making the trip so warm and homely.

Tom: it was so much fun. I liked the free surf at 13th beach. That could not of happened without Mr berry, Kathy, Marty, all the sponsors, parents and the students that went. Thanks

Chiara: The trip was really fun and I had a lot of fun even though I didn’t surf much it was still a pretty good experience , and I am sure everyone else had a great time . I can’t wait to do it again next year .

Noah : I had fun surfs, and met up with some friends from different places, and had the best souvlaki of my life. All round it was  great fun.

A huge thankyou to all our local sponsors, with your support we were able to attend…and come 6th in the State. Thanks a lot!

Today the weather was finally clear enough to have our school cross country. We all wandered down to the main oval straight after lunch. The different year levels were raring to go and found it difficult to settle and listen to Mr Berry’s instructions. The 5 kilometre competitors got to go first. There were only 3; Bryce Watts Parker, Hannah Searl and Brodie Scott. We had to wait until they had completed a lap of the camp park before we got to start the next year levels. In this group there were heaps of competitors. Emma blew the siren and everybody was off for a 3 kilometre run. Finally it got down to the Primary year levels running varying distances. Congratulations to everybody for their commitment, enthusiasm and good sportsmanship. It was a great way to spend a Friday afternoon. Well done to all those that helped to make this event such a success by time keeping, taking photos, rewarding ribbons, blaring the starting siren, setting up the course, marshalling, encouraging and cheering on the competitors and the list goes on and on. Congratulations Mr Berry for all your hard work in running the event and making it such a success.  IMG_7429 IMG_7431 IMG_7439  IMG_7449 IMG_7452 IMG_7451IMG_7453 IMG_7454 IMG_7456 IMG_7458 IMG_7459 IMG_7464


Cohen enjoyed doing his best and getting a ribbon.

Crystal liked running.

Unya enjoyed getting ready at the starting line.

Remo enjoyed cheering for the others.

Great work Prep/One.


Mallacoota P-12 College 2015 Cross Country

What a fantastically cool, clear cross country day. And what a track. Probably the truest cross country track I have ever seen. On Friday the 15th of May all students from Prep – 12 threw in 110% (yes I know that’s technically impossible, but it is a commonly used sporting phrase) effort!

The track was around the back end Caravan Park before heading into the bush near the cut off stump, running to Bastion Point and back, around Mortimers Paddock, past the log cabins, through the bush, over a mighty river, for an inspirational finish across the oval to the goals.

The events ran were:
• 5km race for the 16, 17, and open boys (plus Brodie and Hannah, great work girls!!)
• 3km race for the 11-open girls and 11-15 boys
• 2km race for the two-three’s boys and girls
• 500m race for the preps-ones

Students sprinted, jogged, or walked in high spirits. It was great to have such a fun and positive atmosphere, hopefully encouraging lifelong physical activity. The winners on the day were every student who participated and helped out. Once again we had many students who participated by helping run the event. What a team.

Points were as follows:
Points Bastion Gabo
Running 198 476
Cheering 70 10
Event managers 180 60
Total 448 546

Results were once again close. Gabo taking out the event 546-448 Congratulations. For the race results and awesome colour photos see below, our web or Facebook page.

Thank you to the East Gippsland Shire Caravan Park for allowing us use of the back end of their park. Massive thanks to all the families and friends we had supporting the students. Thanks to all the teacher and student volunteers who made the running of this event possible. Lastly but defiantly not least, thank you to the students. Your positivity was fantastic.

We began the afternoon with shared reading time. It wasn’t as silent as we usually like it but the buzz of a book being shared was really exciting. It was really lovely to younger siblings reading to their older brother or sister and vice versa.

We then made our way down to Room 7 for our Mother’s Day Readings presentation. Congratulations to the Grade 6 students who did an excellent job of MC the whole event. The readings brought giggles, oooohs and aaaaahs and even some lumps in the throat and tears in the eyes.

The afternoon was broken up by a number of Maths activities that had Mums and children strategising, hypothesising, calculating and manipulating.

Grade 2/3s and Prep/Ones reading the stories and poetry about Mum, once again brought about some emotional responses to their heartfelt messages.

We completed the afternoon racing around the school grounds working out clues and searching for specific places as depicted in small thumbnail photos. Each location provided us with a letter that helped us to decipher hidden messages for our Mums.


Thank you to all of our mothers and grandmothers who were able to attend our Mother’s Day Celebration afternoon last week.

In Science we made goo. We wanted to see if a liquid could be a solid at the same time. We found out that it can because of its viscosity. High viscosity means something is all sticky and has trouble moving. Low viscosity means it is really easy to move like petrol, water and milk. Examples of high viscosity liquids are caramel and cold honey. Our icky goo was awesome because it was a solid and liquid at the same time and had high viscosity and low viscosity at the same time. We made a mess!IMG_7349_2 IMG_7348_2 IMG_7347_2 IMG_7346_2 IMG_7345_2 IMG_7344_2 IMG_7342_2 IMG_7341_2 IMG_7340_2 IMG_7339_2 IMG_7338_2 IMG_7333_2 IMG_7331_2 IMG_7330_2
