Auburn Primary School is a small school in the Clare Valley of SA, where community is our heartbeat! Our 'village' provides a strong culture of trust and care in which our children can flourish as lifelong learners, and active and informed citizens.
We wish Charlie Lines and his team all the very best today at the SAPSASA Basketball carnival in Balaklava. Charlie joins Y5/6 friends from Manoora and Saddleworth Primary School to battle it out with teams from around the District. Thankyou also to Mum, Krystal, who was brave enough to take on the role of umpire!
Nawww, thankyou! 💓 How spoiled I was with cards, treats and even text messages from little cherubs who were away. It is honestly an absolute pleasure to be able to work with this beautiful team of big and little people each and every day.
Congratulations on your success Briony. Nice to see it appreciated. 💜
More than just a music concert, yesterday we were treated by the fabulous trio that is Jenny, Jess and David, and their performance, 'Two-wheel time machine'.
The trio brought us weird and wonderful sounds to tell a story of going back in time, to when we were learning to ride a bike. They told an entertaining story with little pearls of wisdom thrown in to help us tackle new learning and challenges in life - believe in yourself, put your brave in front and don't give up, among other things. The musicians helped us to look at failure as an opportunity to learn and sometimes, as a happy accident!
Thankyou Samantha Mack from 🎵🎸 MU for bringing the talented troupe to our schools; and thankyou to our friends from 🎵🎸 , 🎵🎸 MU, , 🎵🎸, and Booborowie Primary Schools for joining us for the fun!
Our littlest learners, drawing upon their Science and History learning and with a deep connection to the words they chose, have created their very own Acknowledgement of Country.
Using the culturally appropriate format and complete with sign language (of course with some creative license to include actions of their own), the Acknowledgement will take pride of place on the landing page of our website.
With a school-wide focus on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives this term, students will develop the publication further following some innovative technologies learning in Media Arts. Watch this space!
It's hard to find a week where we are not propagating or planting something, but today we marked National Tree Day with a special school planting project.
The school, including our Auburn Playcentre friends, once again teamed up with Clare Valley Toyota (a now 20+ year Tree Day partnership) and planted 120 native trees and shrubs to begin revegetation of the oval perimeter.
With funds students raised at our Auburn Autumn Fete market stall, we were able to purchase plants from the Gawler Environment Centre understorey project. The selection was especially tailored to our growing region and included a few trees for shade, assorted butterfly attracting shrubs, and local grass species.
Decimated by a tree safety audit in September 2020, our students have been slowly planning and preparing the garden beds for planting, and were so excited to finally see this area full of plant life again!
