This week at Isabella Plains we celebrated Harmony Day. The children undertook a variety of activities related to the theme ‘everyone belongs’. Children discussed how we are all different, that we like different things, look different, have different families and live in different places but that we all belong at Isabella.

Some students and staff wore orange or traditional clothing to acknowledge difference and share stories from home. We talked about inclusiveness, respect and sharing a sense of belonging.

The kindergarten to year 2 children worked in mixed groups to undertake literacy, art and maths activities.


Introducing Spanish Birth to 8

Introducing Spanish Birth to 8

All children at IPECS are introduced to Spanish language and culture birth to 8. Spanish songs and actions are enjoyed right across the school with more formal instruction taking place from Preschool. The preschool children are introduced to Spanish language and culture via the Early Learning Languages Australia program (ELLA). ELLA is a series of interactive applications (apps), aimed at making language learning engaging and interesting to children in preschool. Children in kindergarten to year 2 have weekly Spanish lessons with their class teacher and our resident Spanish teacher, Louise. Louise is Spanish and shares all of her language and cultural knowledge with the children through song, games, and interactive learning opportunities. The children are loving the new program!
