This month’s focus is Fruit and Veg Month. Last week the focus was on red and purple fruit and vegetables – plums, red cabbage, purple carrots, red capsicum, eggplant, pomegranates, red onions, beetroot, strawberries, blueberries and red cauliflower (just to name a few!). It was amazing to see the interest of the students especially their enjoyment in eating raw red cabbage, drinking beetroot smoothies and eating beetroot muffins.
At Wednesday lunchtime, all students in Years 4-6 are invited to participate in the ‘Cultural Club’. Each fortnight students focus on a different culture. The Senior IEC students select specific elements of their culture that they would like to share with others. The students learn about specific art forms, cultural dress, food, songs and traditions.
The program promotes cultural learning experiences for all students and provides the IEC students with the opportunity to share their culture with students at Beaconsfield Primary School.
