Year 5 & 6 Walk the Trail A walk and a talk with friends - that's what the Year 5 and 6
classes did last Thursday. With the Warburton Trail close
by, the two classes walked from Mt Evelyn to Wandin. It was
a time to enjoy nature, to keep up our fitness, to build
relationships, to start new friendships and, especially for the
Year 6’s, to mentor the Year 5’s in all things Upper Primary.

INFLUENCE Matthew 5:13-16 (NIV) 13 You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness,
how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for any-
thing, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. 14 You are
the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead
they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the
house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that
they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in
