School’s special day of fun STUDENTS at Mornington Special Developmental School made the most of their open day last week by taking part in CFA hose drills, sitting in a police car, playing ukuleles and jumping in a bouncing castle. The school, in Robertson Drive, encouraged present, prospective and interested friends to join in the activities while seeing what the school has to offer, Wednesday 22 May. Students talked about their classes and school

programs, and took part in hands-on demonstrations in the school’s gardening program. “It was a great day,” principal David Newport said. “We had more people than we expected turn up – including a couple of former students. “We’re a small, family-oriented school providing an education for special needs students in the Mornington-Hastings area and the day showed us how much the community supports and appreciates our school.”
