Weekly Walks

Every week the preps go on local walks as part of their unit of inquiry ‘Where we are in place and time’. The central idea is that people create and look after places that are special to them.

This week they visited the Yalukit William Nature Reserve, once part of an extensive swamp. They saw many animals, birds nests and plants. Back in class they watched an episode about Gio Fitzpatrick, who as a teenager worked hard to convince council to preserve this piece of creek and bring it back into it’s original state.



What our parents & students say

"I have been a part of the St Columba's community now for over 30 years. First as a pupil, then as a staff member at Before and After School Care, and now as a parent. My children are thriving here now just as I did."
