On Thursday the 20th July we hosted our ‘Immersion Visit’. A group of Principals, Deputy Principals and Directors visited our school, spending half a day observing the children’s learning and sharing in reflections on our school’s growth as a place of learning. Our focus for the visit was learning in mathematics and the utilisation of our built environment to optimise learning opportunities. We were delighted that Natalie Howson, our Director General was able to join our ‘Immersion Visit’. Our guests were impressed with the children’s engagement in learning and the deep investment of all of our staff in improving outcomes for all our children.

Today we were delighted to welcome the Chief Minister, Mr Andrew Barr, Education Minister, Ms Yvette Berry and the Director General Education Directorate, Ms Natalie Howson to our school.   Their visit to our school coincides with the anniversary of one hundred days of Government since the last ACT election. Chief Minister Barr, Minister Berry and Ms Howson visited the newly re-furbished preschool facilities and our new buildings at the far end of the school. Pari  and Ashish  from Year 6 led our visitors on a tour and described the outstanding new facilities for our children.   Our visitors shared a deep interest in our school and community, asking the children many questions!

The Student Council would like to thank our generous community for their support with our One Walk event. Our school raised $711.90 from your kind donations! This money will go straight to help finding a cure for Type One Diabetes. The children, teachers, staff and community members had a fabulous time walking in the sunshine.



The Work of Worms!

Posted on 22 Nov 2016

Did you know there are over 400 different types of worms?  Composting worms are specific species of the earth worm family.  Our worm farm hosts three types Tiger, Red Wrigglers and Indian Blues.

Each week our worms consume 100kg of organic waste.  That’s a lot of rubbish!

The result of this hard work is a byproduct called castings.  Lovely, rich fertiliser.

The worms have produced approximately 1 ton of compost over the past year and it’s now time to move it to the garden.

Next Tuesday 22nd of November we will move the worms to a new home and the castings to the garden.   This is a significant milestone, as a community we have made some very green footsteps.

Families and friends are  invited to participate next Tuesday. Bring your wheelbarrow and shovel if you like getting in amongst it, we have a lot of dirt and castings to move, even 30 minutes of your time would make a difference.  Alternatively if you would like to watch the moving of the worms feel free to drop by during the day 9am-3pm.

We have GONE GREEN, help us celebrate.



Grandparents and Special Friends Day

Grandparents Day

On Monday and Thursday the children were very excited to welcome their grandparents and special friends to Neville Bonner Primary School.  The children showed them what a typical classroom looks like in 2016. The Music Enrichment group and the Year 6 Band performed for the grandparents and special friends on Monday.

We would like to thank all our visitors for helping the children enjoy their morning activities.



World Teachers' Day - Friday 28th October

Posted on 22 Nov 2016

World Teacher's Day

Every day, teachers and those who work in schools are making a difference educating and inspiring young people across our country.

World Teachers' Day is an opportunity to acknowledge our teachers and school staff and say thanks for the significant contributions they make in our classrooms and communities.

Celebrated in more than 100 countries world-wide, World Teachers' Day was established by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) in 1994 to recognise the role of teachers in society.

World Teachers' Day is held internationally on 5 October. As the day usually falls during school holidays, Australia celebrates on the last Friday of October each year.

Get involved – say thank you to teachers and school staff!
