Access to the internet can sometimes be quiet easy for young students to access. In a webinar series, organised and run by the Office of the eSafety Commissioner, we learn about how to be safe and kind online. We also learn about how what we say or do online can hurt the feelings of our friends. In the most recent webinar we learnt, if we were bullied or blackmailed online, what strategies we can put in place to stop this from reoccurring. eSafety is important for the next generation.

With the use of a sheet, light, shadows, basic costumes and music, we were transported back to World War I in Australia. The journey followed a young recruit and his family sharing their experiences from the challenges on the battle fields, communicating through letters to a family hoping to see their loved ones again. The journey was engaging and helped us recognise the importance of remembering those who sacrifice their lives for our freedom. Lest we forget.
Ever wondered what type of bird is in our school logo? It is the small Helmeted Honey Eater. Today we attended a Helmeted Honey Eater Incursion. This was an opportunity to learn about the bird on our uniforms, we wear each day we come to school. The Incursion taught us about the Helmeted Honey Eater’s habitat, diet, origins and the impacts humans are having. The importance of the breeding program and how this breeding program is reducing the possibility of this precious animal becoming extinct. There is an opportunity for two students from year 4 and 5 to be BLPS Helmeted Honey Eater ambassadors to help protect this special species of bird. To become an ambassador, you have to write why you would be a great ambassador and hand it to your Teacher.
