Last week Year 3 celebrated Australia Day.  To start the day they had a talk from Mrs Evans and Mrs Hellyer, both who come from Australia. Then the children set about making boomerangs and decorating them with pictures of Australian animals.  They also made Anzac biscuits and started making top trump cards.

Finally, the children had a little tea party of fairy bread, cheese puffs, lamingtons, and the Anzac biscuits they had made. The day was finished by singing the old and new Australian National Anthems and Kookaburra.
