Prep 100 Days
We started off our week with the celebration of Prep 100 days of school. It is always a highlight to see all the little ones dressed up as their one hundred year old selves. Wrinkles and grey hair everywhere! We congratulate the Preps on this milestone and encourage their hard work to continue.

STEM Excursion
Mrs Danson and Lionakis Sensei took eight Grade 5/6 students to a STEM excursion at Melbourne University. The students had a great day working in teams and were confident in sharing their ideas and answering questions. They worked towards designing solutions to assist people with a disability. The students are looking forward to sharing their knowledge with the rest of the senior level at a student-led incursion on Wednesday 31st July. What fantastic leaders we have at OLA!

Kingston Council Junior Mayor Competition
On Thursday the 16th of May the four school captains went to run for the Junior Mayor election. It was at the Chelsea Town Hall. The mayor (Georgina Oxley - a past student of OLA) presented the awards to the people elected. There were 24 schools attending. Our head speaker was Isabelle G and our student representatives were Jess P, Hamish D and Sebastian T. Our speech was about habitat loss and animal endangerment and we thought we did a really good job. The boy who won (Jack from Patterson Lakes Primary) did a really inspiring rap/poem. We learnt lots from everyone’s speeches. At the end, there was joke time and Jess went up on stage to tell a joke. We sat next to people from St Pat’s in Mentone and we became friends with them. We had a really good time.
