Welcome to Orana Catholic Primary School
Within this vibrant learning culture, the days are filled with exciting opportunities to explore learning and discover new ways of thinking. Our School Wide Pedagogy operates from our shared beliefs about teaching and learning. Each day students are challenged to make meaningful connections and to become engaged with their learning.
It has been a busy week as some of the grades immerse themselves in the History component of the Australian Curriculum.
The National Trust of Australia (WA) has provided us with several opportunities this week to visit their historic properties and to hear from experts in the field.
On Monday, the Year Two's went on an excursion to Samson House in Fremantle. To quote the National Trust website: 'Samson House showcases middle-class, suburban, domestic life in the late colonial period through the twentieth century. It can be used to learn about the history of Fremantle and the State." Our students looked at many artefacts from the past, played olden days games and explored the furnished rooms in the house. The excursion was very informative and lots of fun.
