A Child's View of School

The children were asked to think about school and what they love. Here are their responses:


'I love this school because everyone is lovely and respectful to all. Children at this school are very smart and great writers.

At our school we have pets in the classrooms like dogs, fish, a bird and a turtle.

We get to do fun activities in the classrooms like origami so our school work is fun. Each term we do a different integrated study unit.

I appreciate the school grounds with all my heart. We have two big playgrounds and a pine forest that you can get lost in. There are so many good places to play. We have lots of sports things and other interesting things to play with. I like our school because I get to play football and tiggy. I love the playground and all the things we have to play with.

At our school we are respectful to each other. We don’t swear or bully others. We teach kids to be nice to each other.

All the kids love our pine forest. We are allowed to safely make cubbies, shops, farms and race tracks. The parents have cut up lots of logs for us to use. I made a great cake shop that everyone loved.

We are a community school so we encourage parents to help at school.

Our teachers appreciate our writing, reading, science and all other stuff. They do lots of fun things with us. Our teachers are nice to us and take us on lots of excursions.

I love our sports program. We get to do loads of fun things like gymnastics, kayaking, snow skiing, orienteering, tennis, athletics, swimming and lots more. We are always active.

Come to Dixons Creek Primary School because all the kids are friendly and it is easy to make friends here. I love this school because it is kind!'
