Prep/1 at ANPS



Prep/1 Australian Sports Museum Excursion

This term the Prep/1 students have been learning health. We have been learning to identify different parts of our body, our five senses, and things we can do to stay healthy.

To deepen our understanding, we will going on an excursion to the Australian Sports Museum at the MCG. We will be doing a guided tour of the museum to look at the different artifacts there, and will also be able to participate in some fun activities.

Students will need to bring a packed lunch, a snack and a bottle of water in a plastic bag with their name on it. Please encourage your child to wear comfortable shoes, as we will be doing a lot of walking. Your child may also choose to wear a mask when they are on the bus, and when they are exploring the Museum.

Your child will need to be at school by 9:00am, as the bus will be leaving for the Sports Museum at 9:15am sharp.

Please return the signed envelope and payment to school no later than Friday the 2nd of September, 2022.


Students in Grades Prep and One will be participating in a Responsible Pet Ownership Program on May 3, 2022.

The program will include:

  • a dog visit
  • role play
  • song and story time

The program will focus on teaching students about dog safety:

  • when dogs should be left alone
  • things we should not do to dogs
  • how can you tell if a dog is happy, frightened or angry
  • a safe way to approach and greet a dog
  • what to do if approached by an unknown or aggressive dog

If you have any questions or comments regarding this event please see Mrs Lee-Anne Veteha.


As part of our teaching and learning program the Grade P/1 team have organised an excursion to the Melbourne Arts Centre for Thursday 19th of May, 2022.

We will be watching a live performance of ‘Magic Beach’.

There is no cost to this excursion, as we have successfully received funding through the Arts Centre.

Students are required to bring a plastic bag with their name and school name clearly labelled on it with a snack, some lunch and a drink, preferably in disposable packaging.

There is no need to bring school bags or lunch boxes on this day. Students are required to wear full school uniform and wear suitable footwear. 

Please see your classroom teacher if you have any queries.
