It is Day 6 and today, we visited Cowes Primary School. The school is 130 years old and it is located in the town of Cowes on Phillip Island, 140km from Melbourne City.
When we reached the school, we were greeted by Mr Rodney McKenzie, the Assistant Principal of the school. We then joined the Grade 4 pupils from the school in their Mathematics lessons.
It was really an learning experience as we participated in the lessons. For Mathematics, we learned probability and graph plotting using Smarties chocolate candies.
After the lesson, it was time to play! We joined the pupils in their recess and we showed them how to play our local game of chaptek!
After our play time, we proceeded to the school's vegetable garden to learn how the pupils learn to upkeep a vegetable patch and how they use recycled materials to maintain the garden. We got our hands-on experience too and it was fun!
After cleaning our hands, we proceeded to the their indoor hall where we performed our dance item to the pupils and staff of the school. Lorenzo (P4/1) also took stage to wow the audience with his rendition of "The Rainbow" while Melissa Mak and Basil Koh (P5/1) performed their wushu skills that had the audience clapping for more.
