You are holding in your hands the 20 11 Isik College Shepparton Campu s yearbook. While a school year book does not refl ect all the wonderful memorie s of your school life we have tried to make this mag azine a treasure bo x of your memories. Every page of this yearbook is an interface to look back at your past and smile at what was once very important to you, along with m emories which shaped who you ar e today. A famous British actor Jeremy Iron s said “We all have our time mac hines. Some take us back, they’re called memories. So me take us forwar d, they’re called dreams.” May this yearbook be your time machine. The strength of yo ur memories will determine where it leads you. Eith er back to your m emories of the golden era of prim ary school or forw ard to your dreams which you n work to achieve. Yearbook Desig I would like to th ank Yearbook Coor dinator Meagan Height for her effo rts and IXIR Design Studio for this wonderful job. Enjoy your yearbo ok... Samil Gunduz Editor


The Year book is a big undertaking for the school community. Last year I spent many hours over the year book which you received in May 2011, with the assistance from Canan Kandemir and Annette Moran who proof read the document a number of times. In the final stages Ozlem Urhan spent a number of hours of reformatting so that we were able to print the document for you. The 2011 Yearbook will take a new format and quality. The Year 5/6/7 students were forwarded the chance be members of the yearbook committee. Many children put their hands up for the job The Yearbook committee meet once a week in the Computer Lab. The Yearbook committee would like to thank everyone for their hard work to have the 2011 yearbook out to the families in our community. Meagan Height Yearbook Coordinator

This year has seen many achievements in the education of the students at ISIK College, Shepparton Campus. We have changed the way we implement our curriculum. We were teaching every curriculum area over every term, now we are focusing on one curriculum area a term and approaching it through Literacy and Numeracy. To enrich our students learning we have incorporated different experiences, incursions and excursions. Physical Education (PE) During term 1 & 2, students participated in a highly enjoyable Gymnastics Program, run by Activated Group. Term 1 also saw many of our students participate in the annual swimming program at Aquamoves and Looking Good. In Term 3, students participated in a school run Athletics program. This program gave the students the skills and knowledge of athletics events in preparation for the grade 3-6 participation in the local interschool sports program in Term 4. In Term 4, students throughout the school, were involved in dance lessons as part of PE and Arts. These programs assisted students to be prepared for the end of year concert. Science Program This year the full implementation of the Science Primary, “Primary Connections,” took place across all levels. Primary Connections is an inquiry based science program developing all expected outcomes at each learning level of the school. This is a program that is designed by science teachers for other classroom teachers, to implement a hands-on learning environment for students. Australian Curriculum and VELS In Term 3, many of our teachers created learning activities drawing from the new Australian Curriculum e.g History. This new curriculum complements the teach-

ing that is based around the Victorian Essential Learning Standards, which currently is in use by other teaching authorities. Community connections We have also continued our relationship with the Goulburn Valley Library. Once a semester each class had a Library session, with the Education Librarian, Anne Tomietto. Some of the classes also visited the library on a fortnightly basis. We also participated in special programs provided by the library. During Term 3 some classes visited the library to learn about the Local Aboriginal History by viewing the Aboriginal artefacts, art, and books to gain a greater understanding of this part of the local history. Incursions, Excursions and Field trips Incursions are when someone visits the school. Excursions are when groups of students leave the school for the purpose to further their learning. Incursions and excursions are a popular part of our school calendar, looked forward to, by teachers and students. They are used to introduce the unit of study or to consolidate learning in the classroom. Field trips are a chance for all students, from all levels, to attend a day where they are having fun with family and friends. Assessment and Reporting 2011 has seen the change in our Assessment and Reporting of the students’ progress. We have moved on from exams at the end of every term, to Learning Journals at the conclusion of every semester. Learning Journals are a chance for parents to see the overall learning that their child may have completed over the semester/year, and observe their child’s development of knowledge, skills and understanding of concepts. What a busy year we have had!! As the curriculum co-ordinator I am already looking forward to 2012. It is already packed with many enriching learning experiences for the students.

The year has been excellent. The students have worked hard and we all enjoyed it too, be it a trip to aquarium or swimming lessons. In term 1 we learned about healthy body, kids learnt about Germs and importance of washing hands. We had an incursion from Brave Hearts, the education program was developed to help empower children to speak out about any unsafe situation. In term 2 kids went to the library and they all had fun. Term 3 came with lots of activities. We had science week, book week and character parade. In this term we went for an excursion to Yarabee Yesterdays World. Kids enjoyed their day as they had a glimpse of olden days. They got to know, most olden day games are not like games we have today. I wish all the best to everyone in grade 1/2 and I hope they attain wonderful experiences and opportunities to learn and grow in the days ahead.

During Term 1 we participated in swimming and gymnastics. In term 2: Children enjoyed hands-on learning in our Science units of work; “Push and Pull” then “Smooth Moves”. They experimented with all different forces. As part of Education Week, we visited the Library, to listen to presentation from Victorian Museum scientist. We learnt about dinosaurs, we constructed a leg of a dinosaur, and measuring this by lying down next to it. In term 3: We had a busy conclusion last week of, as Term 3, in the last week we headed off twice to Melbourne. On the first time we went to see the Keysborough Campus’ concert, based on ‘The Lion King’. This gave us many great ideas for our own concert item. The second excursion was with the whole school, to the Melbourne Zoo which was enjoyed by all who attended. In term 4, the children participated in school Fun Run to help raise money for books and resources for our school library. The grade 3 also participated in the interschool sports for the first time.
