Boneo Buzz: 12th August
Dear Parents and Carers,
WE WANT OUR PARENTS/CAREGIVERS/GUARDIANS TO TELL US WHAT THEY THINK!
Our school will be conducting our annual survey to find out what our community thinks of our school. The Parent/Caregiver/Guardian Opinion Survey is an annual survey offered by the Department of Education and Training that is designed to assist schools in gaining an understanding of families’ perceptions of school climate, student behaviour, and student engagement.
We encourage all families to participate in this survey. Our school will use the survey results to help inform and direct future school planning and improvement strategies.
A random sample of approximately 30 per cent of parents/caregivers/guardians is usually selected to participate in this year’s survey. Last year, all families were invited to participate in the survey and this year we intend to once again invite all families to participate.
The survey will be conducted from Monday 15th August to Friday 16th September. Parents will receive a Compass notification containing a password to access the anonymous survey.
The survey will be conducted online, only takes 20 minutes to complete, and can be accessed at any convenient time within the fieldwork period on desktop computers, laptops, tablets or smartphones.

Snapshot of Learning
Prep – Moonlit Sanctuary
On Tuesday, we saw animals and we liked it. We tried to feed the kangaroos but the ducks kept eating it. The bus was so fun. – Emily
You know it was fun because I got to see owls and eagles and snakes! – Mikey
JJ put the bearded dragon on my head and I got to hold it! – Archer
Year 5 – Melbourne Zoo
Last Monday, my whole cohort went to the Melbourne Zoo. We were searching for information about Animal Adaptations.
There were so many beautiful animals. My favourite was the Meerkats. My whole class got to hold animal skulls to see what adaptations that animal would have had. My favourite was the snake skull, because it could open its mouth bones so big to fit bird eggs, mice, and even antelope into its mouth.
We were lucky enough to have a Macaw and a parrot stop by that we got to learn about as an extra! They both had colourful feathers to blend into their surroundings. One of the sneaky things flew off!
We got to see herbivores, carnivores and omnivores. We all had a brilliant day and had a restful but chatty 2 hour ride home.
