In true footy fashion the weather was cold and wet for our annual Footy Day, but that didn't stop the enthusiasm of the supporters in every year level! The Junior Grades completing a modified round robin of activities during the morning that included creating their own jersey, handball practise and singing the theme songs from each club. The Senior students had planned to have a footy game in the afternoon, but the weather wasn't playing along so it was footy fun instead for them.

What a busy six months we've had at Cardinia. It's hard to believe that half the year has flown past us already. Some of the highlights include:
What a great time we had! After a very chilly start to the morning the sun came out in time for the parade. Out theme was the Beaches of Australia and I think all the costumes (including the one on the truck!) showed our love of the water. A huge thank you to all the students, parents and teachers (especially Miss Kerslake!) who spent many hours creating the waves, thongs, lifesavers tower and of course our lifesaver to decorate the truck!
Well it's hard to believe but another year is over at Cardinina. So much has happened during the year and so many achievements have been made by our students and teachers. As we wind down (or is that up!) for Christmas we need to thank all the people who work tirelessly behind the scenes to make sure our school is the wonderful place we know and love. If you have helped in any way this year please take our THANKS! We couldn't do all the things that make this school great without the support and dedication of our parents, community and teachers.

Today we started off at Federation Square. Students enjoyed seeing themselves on the big screen as we walked through the square. We then visited the National Gallery of Victoria, where we saw indigenous art, realistic sculptures and amazing works of art.
After a wet and soggy start to the day we made it to the Melbourne Museum to look at the great exhibits.
I have been the Principal of Cardinia Primary for over 20 years and have seen the school grow and change over that time. We have grown from a small 1 room school nearly 100 years ago, to a modern new school with a full and varied learning curriculum. We have a dedicated staff who ensure that even as the school has grown, we haven’t lost the little things that make us special – the school picnic; whole school camp; and our Christmas Concert. The whole school picnic at the start of the year is a day I greatly enjoy as it lets me meet new families and get to know students in a relaxed and fun day.
