STEAM Excursion - The Arcadia Spider

We had a brush with mechanical wildlife on Wednesday 23rd November this year when rooms 3, 2 & 1 visited Elizabeth Quay. The Arcadia spider visited Perth in their only Australian performance and Belmay students were lucky enough to spend some time dedicated to hands-on activities in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Maths (STEAM).

From making slime to playing music, students were treated to a variety of experiences designed to inspire and motivate STEAM thinking - combining technical knowledge with artistic flair - the 2 disciplines that inspired the creation of the Arcadia spider.

We even had a brush with fame - channel 9's news crew asked our very own Belmay students to feature on their nightly news report!! We are stars! See the pictures and the news report below.

St John Ambulance Visit

This Monday 21st Novemberg gave all of Belmay, Carson St Satellite Class and SEMLDC the rare opportunity to look inside an ambulance - some of us for the first time.

This ambulance was very special as it has been painted with a design by our very own Belmay parent and artist, Jilalga Murray. She explained to use the significance of the design and we understood a bit more about how St Johns helps ours and other communities all across Australia.

First we heard from Nick and Victoria, volunteers with St Johns, who asked us questions about how to manage things in an emergency. We then shared some stories of times we've seen Ambulances - we like sharing at Belmay!

Suitcase Circus - Kidsmatter Family Fun Afternoon

Tuesday 20th of September we had such great fun with Jo Bolton and his 'Suitcase Circus'.

We invited all of our families to come and join in - we learnt some new tricks and practiced some ones we'd already learnt. Jo showed us the tricks of the trade - hula hoops, spinning plates, diablo, juggling and so much more!

Thanks to Mrs Hurst who cut up a HEAP of fruit for us to munch on before Jo started his performance.

Thanks also goes to Mrs Gillett for organising the afternoon and to the teachers who stayed after school to help out.

Athletics Carnival

Athletics Carnival 2016

Thursday 15th of September this year saw the annual Belmay & SEMLDC Athletic Carnival on our school oval.

We started the day with running races for all year levels and then moved onto some team games where faction was pitted against faction! The sportsmanship, comraderie and team work was great to see from all factions!

We nearly got to the very end of the day and....the rain came! We were washed out - and had to run the final race of the day (the grand relay) on the Friday.

Congratulations to Green faction for taking out first place in the faction points for the day and to all of the champions and runner up's for each year level.

A big thank you to the Belmay and SEMLDC P&C for their wonderful cake stall and sausage sizzle. Also, to Mr Baxter for his excellent organisation of the day and to the teachers, assistants and gardeners for ensuring that everything went smoothly!

Naidoc Week 2016

Naidoc week celebrations this year began on Monday 26th June. Belmay had so many interesting activities happening throughout the week!

Every class took part in a variety of activities - from art to writing.

Then on Friday, the whole school participated in rotating from one activity to the next. Photos are below. We learnt about traditional and contemporary art and used this as inspiration to create our own artwork. We learnt about the meaning of the colours in the Aboriginal flag and worked collaboratively to make bracelets. We danced to contemporary indigenous hip hop and all of the teachers took us through different art techniques inspired by Aboriginal cave paintings and learnt from a real artist - Jilalga Murray!

Book Week

We were also lucky enough to be visited earlier in the week by Gina Williams who writes her own songs in Nyoongar language. We learned a song called 'Wanjoo' which means welcome.

Book Week

All our celebrations culminated in a play featuring our very own Amy Smith. Amy worked hard with the Belmay choir to portray a story from her own people about a little bird called a 'Wirluru'.

Book Week

A huge thanks go to Mrs Amhaz in Room 14 for co-ordinating the event - it was a great success!

Police Band Visit

The WA Police Band came to Belmay on Friday 29th April this year!

At first it took us a little while to get used to the volume but we were amazed at the interesting instruments - the bagpipes especially! Even some of our teachers and students got involved!

After a small morning tea, the band members were invited into the classrooms where students got a close-up look at the instruments and asked some interesting questions of the police officers.

Harmony Day 2016

Harmony Day at Belmay PS fell on Monday 21st March this year and to us, it's all about family. We are a family here at Belmay which includes everyone - all the staff, the students and our wonderful families and the community too!

We had a lovely family picnic out on the lawn in the junior playground. We ate our lunches with other families and shared stories of our home lives with each other.

Students also participated in Harmony Day activities within their classrooms.

Huge thank you to Senorita Russo for organising Harmony day for us at Belmay.

GRIP Leadership

GRIP Leadership 2016

Our 2016 prefects had an opportunity to build on their already amazing leadership skills at the annual GRIP leadership day in Perth city on Friday 11th March.

Our leadership team attended the day with Mr Gerstorfer and Mrs Hurst to learn a bit more about tackling those tricky bullying problems as a leader and as a student.

The prefects learned so much and hope to prove themselves in actual situations if they arise in the playground.
