Our trip to Federation University

Today we got to meet 3 students Patty, Tasha and Sean. We also got to participate in an amazing race around the Mt Helen campus. It was a great experience and we enjoyed having our questions answered and seeing some of the new and exciting buildings and facilities.









Read about our experiences below….

Federation University

Next week we are very lucky to meet with some current Federation University students to hear their pathway story, and also ask them some questions. We are also getting to participate in an Amazing Race scavenger hunt around campus!

Comment below your question for one of the students.. (it may be about their education, travel, study hours, residence, work, family pathways ect..)


Today we had an introduction to eSmart and cyber safety. We learnt how fast information can travel online and that when we post online, it stays in the internet space for ever.

We also learnt why we need to be careful with the information we share on our social media pages and to avoid sharing personal img_1404img_1405 img_1406 img_1407 img_1408 information with people we dont know.

Learning shortcuts in Tinkercad


Today in our E-Learning session we learnt keyboard shortcuts that will help us when we are creating our 3D models in the program ‘Tinkercad’.

We were only a small group today but the shortcuts helped us to be more accurate with our designs.

Next term we look forward to mentoring the grade 5 students and sharing these shortcuts with them. img_6088

What does being eSmart mean?
What is cyber safety?

At YPCC we are committed to making sure all our students, staff and community are safe online and that they have the knowledge and skills to do this.

Please complete this survey to tell us how you use technology so that we are able to focus on the areas that can help build our skills in this area.

Who says I’m average?

Pod 3 this week created their own 2 metre ruler out of A3 paper, we then measured our heights. After measuring our heights we stuck them up on the wall in order from smallest to tallest (It was no surprise to us that Peta was the tallest!) We made observations on our heights and we then calculated the mean (average) height of a Pod 3 student- it was 152cm!





Super Start to Term 3

Wow… What a great start to term 3… Although very chilly, both teachers and students have been learning lots with the support of Michael Ymer. Michael has been working with staff and students for a number of years now developing our skills in the teaching and learning of Mathematics.

I’m not sure who enjoyed the sessions with Michael more… The staff or students.
