Healesville District Rotary Speech Competition 2021
Evelyn Blake-Witton and Ella Deefholts were the finalists from Healesville Primary School. Both girls had to present their speeches via zoom and were competing against finalists from three other local primary schools. HPS is very proud of these amazing ambassadors for our school.
Congratulations to both for outstanding presentations.
Ella presented a speech on ‘The Earth in 2051’. The judges said that it was well thought out, well written, well researched and passionately presented. They were particularly impressed with her closing, which was a call to arms. Click on the link to watch Ella's presentation: https://flipgrid.com/s/AzhAyG-YwY3S

HART 2021 FINALISTS - Culture For Life!
Congratulations to HART 2021 finalist Healesville Primary School for their project 'Culture for Life'! Culture for Life is a cultural education program at Healesville Primary School. Now in its fifth year, the program builds appreciation and understanding of both traditional and contemporary Wurundjeri culture, history and more recently Woiwurrung language. The program creates awareness and respect for cultural diversity within the school and the community. The program has been designed and delivered by Traditional Owner Brooke Wandin with support from her family and Elders. There have been significant results around the school with the program growing from Prep to Grade 2 participating in 2017 to all year levels in 2021. Preps say an Acknowledgement of Country in Woiwurrung language at the beginning of each day. Culture for Life aims to plant seeds of curiosity in students and, when nurtured, can grow into strong trees to live within them for their adolescent and adult lives.Reconciliation VictoriaBank Australia3KND Kool 'N' Deadly#HART21
