The Billy Carts Program

There’s one activity that Year 6 prizes above all others – the billy cart program. Every year, it’s greeted with excitement and enthusiasm (and envy from all the other year levels!). Chris Athanasiadis explains –

This blog was written by four of our Grade 6s: Rachael, Bharat, Abigail and Anand. They were extremely excited when they learned that they would be writing a blog on our Billy Carts incursion and program. We are lucky enough to have an amazing billy cart program that has reached cult status at our school and is something that students look forward to from their early years at KPS. We are all very excited to see what amazing designs our Grade 6s will come up with this year and how the hard work and process of building, collaborating, leading and designing our billy carts will create an electrifying race that stops our Kewmunity!

What a term it was!

It has been another big sporting term at Kew Primary School. I was so proud of all our sporting accomplishments but in particular the highlight was our House Cross Country. Also the gymnastics program across the school has been a success, especially using the new equipment in lessons. I also really enjoyed hearing from our students about their exciting experiences in sport. Below are just three of our main events this term, thank-you Feargus, Amelie and Joanne for sharing your thoughts.

Sounds like a good idea? Well even better was the way PlanetSavers engaged with student leaders to first assist with the audit itself and then develop strategies and processes for the school to act. Continue reading
