Farnham Street celebrated the Refugee week by organising activities for students throughout the last week of the term. We had activities like Gentle exercise, Knitting, Card making, Self defence, iPad apps, Jewellery making and Cake baking.

The students actively participated in the activities and showcased the skills and positive contribution they bring to their communities in Australia.

The Flemington Food Forest was created in 2013 as a community edible garden which looks to the natural structure of a forest to gain high yields with minimum maintenance and human inputs. We have created the Flemington Food Forest primarily as a living playground for local children and their families to explore their natural world and gain basic knowledge about growing fresh, local and healthy food.

We went to the beautiful Torquay beach on 17th March with 90 students and staff members to celeberate the Cultural Diversity week. It was a beautiful sunny day, perfect for a visit to the beach. We all enjoyed fish n chips on the shore. It was one of our best trips.
