Local artist Paul Baker sails into Carrum

Donna Bauer, Walter and Harriet admire our new shield

Carrum is buzzing over our wonderful new addition to the original Carrum Primary School building.

Paul Baker, our own local artist, has generously spent days creating a masterpiece which can be viewed from the Church Road entrance. The school emblem has been captured as a 3D replica, masterfully sculptured with a concrete render and proudly displayed on the Prep wall for all to see.

The much anticipated garden to be planted as part of our Stephanie Alexander Kitchen garden program has been altered to ensure our shield will remain visible to all who pass by. Featured here is Walter and Harriet with local MP Donna Bauer who was suitably impressed by the skill and effort Mr Baker has dedicated to the shield. On behalf of everyone at Carrum Primary School and the wider community, thank you!

Recycling Excursion

Re-use, Reduce, Recycle and Re-think! Our new motto in Grade 1/2.

Our exciting excursion to the Recycling and sorting plant has inspired us. We discovered that old coke bottles are turned into…jumpers!! Glass bottles become Bus Lanes (which glitter) and a 1litre milk carton = 4 pieces of paper! If your plastic scrunches easily it is not recyclable and becomes landfill which takes hundreds of years to break down so let’s all bring lunch boxes and other re-usable┬ácontainers and save our Earth!

National Tree Planting Day

What an exciting Friday! Today is National Tree Planting Day and a wonderful way to kick start our new Orchard and Wetland Habitat. Prep – 5/6 participated in a hole digging, fertilising (eww!), planting, watering and mulching experience. Many thanks to Mrs Galland for her amazing involvement. Eve in Grade 1/2D learned all about grafting and everyone is keen to be on watering duty during the week.
