Tommy’s Time at Isabella State School

Hi everyone, as I write this I hope Tommy is on his way to his next destination. We had such a great couple of days with Tommy. The children in 2C loved him.

Thanks for the comments Kedron students, you both were very curious as to why I got cranky. It was because I wanted a map that showed all of our fantastic state but I couldn’t buy one at that petrol station. I was very resilient though.

Our front gate, welcome! We are a You Can Do It school.This is part of our wonderful sensory garden.The outside view of our fabulous new hall. Look closely and you'll see Tommy.Our vegetable garden!

From our oval, looking back at the school. That is our blue classroom.

As you can see the children planned an extensive list of destinations around our school.

Isabella SS is in Edmonton and we areĀ a new school, 5 years old. The school has been built on a cleared cane paddock belonging to some cane farmers. Isabella was the name of the women who owned the land, her husband was Thomas. Our school is incredibly coloured, blue, orange, green, purple just to name a few. We started small, about 90 children but are now well over 600.

Our school is in Edmonton which is now a suburb of Cairns. Cairns is a beautiful place and our school is in a valley surrounded by mountains.

We loved sharing Tommy’s journey, thanks Kedron children!

Miss Louise

Tommy Arrives at Isabella SS in Cairns.

Hi Everyone I arrived safe and sound at Isabella, its been a busy few weeks.

Today I relaxed by sitting with lots of the children in 2C and helping them with their learning.

This afternoon Miss Louise showed the children the blog, they hadn’t seen my travels, she was a little worried that I may not make it here and didn’t want to disappoint her class. But all turned out well. They loved catching up on my journey and Miss Louise and Miss Gale put stickers on a map to show where I have been (except Bamaga because the map didnt get there! Miss Louise was quite cranky at the petrol station this morning!) It was nice to remember the friends I have made along the way too.

The children worked in pairs to come up with a list of places to take me tomorrow with the camera. It looks a great list, I am sure that Miss Louise will put those pictures up tomorrow.

I hope that my special friends at Kedron are enjoying my journey, what an adventure I am on.

Until tomorrow!

Tommy
