Emergency Evacuation Drill

Last Friday the school had an Emergency Evacuation Drill. I am pleased to report that the emergency procedures and strategies put in place at Mildura South Primary School were successful. When visiting the school, parents and visitors must follow the following procedures during an evacuation.
Emergency Evacuation Procedures for Parents and Visitors
• You will hear an alarm sounding continuously and an announcement over the P.A. system. 

• An announcement will inform you that a ‘code red’ will require an emergency evacuation. 

• Remain with the class group. Move swiftly to the emergency evacuation assembly area. 

• Follow the directions of school staff at all times. 

• Do not accompany students on your own. You must stay with a teacher at all times. 

• If you are not with a class at the time of an evacuation please move towards the nearest exit gate. 

• Please inform a teacher as soon as possible when you arrive at the evacuation assembly area. 

• If possible carry a mobile phone on you at all times. 

Grade 3 History Camp

As part of the Grade 3 History Unit, 75 students and 8 staff recently had a two day camp with a focus on local Indigenous and Pioneer History.
We were lucky enough to have guest presenters such as Willy Hannah and Uncle Peter Peterson, who specialise in local Koori Cultural Education.
It was also our privilege to have Bob Walton join us at the Werrimull Pioneer settlement and Wentworth Museum and Old Gaol.
Bob has been a teacher, principal and university lecturer who is also a passionate local historian.
We also had a fun time at Perry Sand hills.
A wonderful, educational, fun packed time was had by us all!!

Grade 3 Geography Unit

As part of our Geography unit, Grade 3 students learnt about Australian states and territories, our neighbouring countries, such as Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand, South America and Africa. We learnt that these continents are all in the southern hemisphere and have interesting weather, plants and animals. Students then made globes of the world.

eSmart Tips

Don’t Share Passwords.
Don’t share passwords with anyone, not even your best friends, but if you trust your parent or guardian you may tell them. Do not store your passwords in obvious places, but make sure you know where they are at all times. Keep your passwords safe so nobody can access your stuff.
