Here’s the latest news to keep our community up to date on the latest happenings at our school.
Hello everyone and welcome back to another week in our fabulous school.
The Broadmeadows Valley learning community is made up of a wide range of people learning new things, sharing their knowledge and growing their skills every day.
Gowrie Broadmeadows Valley Victoria looks after our youngest members of our learning community. Over the years we have developed and grown the relationship that exists between us. We have Gowrie students learning together with our students in Learning Neighbourhood 1, attending our whole school assemblies and a range of school events that happen throughout the year. They are a very valued part of our community.
It is with great pleasure that I inform you that they have been awarded the highest rating possible, an EXCELLENT rating. There are only 9 other services in Victoria that hold this rating.
On behalf of all us at Broadmeadows Valley Primary school I would like to express our congratulations to Michelle and her team. What a magnificent effort to have been recognised for the work and service that they have provided for our community.
It is when we work together that we are able to achieve so much more than when we work alone.
Congratulations to Gowrie Broadmeadows Valley, we look forward to continuing to strengthen and grow the relationship that makes teaching and learning successful for all of our students.
Also, a big thank you to everyone who completed the Parent Opinion survey, we appreciate your time and opinions.
Take care and have a great week.
Learning Neighbourhood Two have had a wonderful first half of Term 3.
Students have had the opportunity to build their knowledge about the Broadmeadows community. We have visited the Jacana Wetlands where we searched for Pobblebonk frogs and identified local birdlife. We also visited Johnson Street Reserve to observe the different facilities provided for various age groups within the community.
The Song Room program is continuing to be a success every Friday. Our new and enthusiastic instructor Katie has settled in very well, and has been leading students in high-energy sessions incorporating song, dance and drama.
Preparations continue for the LN2 Camp in Term 4 (October 16th-18th). We are still waiting on a number of permission and medical forms from students. Can parents ensure these are returned to school as soon as possible please.
LN2 are looking forward to the 2019 Book Week celebrations this week. We encourage all students to dress up as a character from a book. We recommend that all students create their own costumes from clothing or materials they already have at home. There is no expectation for any student to purchase a complete costume.

Broadmeadows Valley is celebrating book week this week - 19th - 23rd August. Book week celebrates the joy of reading and your child will have the opportunity to join in the celebrations this Friday, by dressing up inspired by their favourite book or character. There will be a range of book activities happening on Friday that will promote a love of reading. As part of the fun, there will also be a book parade that will take place at 1:30pm in the Multi-Purpose Hall.
We invite all parents and families to attend the parade.
Kiana and Brodey from Grade 5 have participated in the 'Speak Up, Speak Out' Program during Term 2. This program has been delivered by Merri Health and The Long Walk Trust, to engage young Aboriginal children in the Hume area in respectful relationships education, leadership and upstander training, as well as connection to culture and community, empowering them to be tomorrow's upstanding community leaders. As part of this program Brodey participated in a 2-day camp at the end of Term 2.As a celebration of this program Miss Cyndi, Mr Mac and Kirsten attended a 'wrap up' for the program at the Essendon Football Club on Saturday morning, along with Kiana, Brodey and their families. It was fantastic to see Brodey and Kiana learn more and share about their Aboriginal culture and how to be an 'upstander' and not a 'bystander'.
Brodey and Kiana have also been presented with badges for their role of 'Indigeneous Young Leaders' at BVPS. Congratulations Brodey and Kiana.
