HPV and Pushcarts
Our Pushcart was first created in 2002 by Mr. Bruce Armstrong, a former teacher at Tooradin Primary. Since then we have competed in numerous events at Wonthaggi and Maryborough. The Human Powered Vehicle (HPV) project started in 2006 by Ms Diane Hayne, a grade 5/6 teacher at the time. We have competed every year since and continually impress judges and spectators with our design and enthusiastic teams. It has become an integral part of our school curriculum. It is an exciting program designed to provide opportunities for students, teachers, parents and many local business’ to be able to work together to design and construct a vehicle, a machine or innovation in technology that will represent an energy breakthrough. We compete in a four race event for Casey, Wonthaggi, Knox Grand Prix and the RACV Energy Breakthrough in Maryborough.
Tooradin Primary have approximately thirty seven students participating in the choir. The students have performed at Cranbourne Centro during Education Week and were also part of the official opening of the Bendigo Bank in Tooradin. They sing every Monday morning at our assembly in front of parent, students, teachers and visitors. They wear a stunning yellow polo shirt and normal school uniform. We have an exceptionally talented group who just love to sing up beat tunes. Students have choir practice twice a week.
Students have the opportunity at lunchtime to visit other classroom and participate in lunchtime activities. These activities are subject to change every term.
Each year Grade 6 students are trained to be responsible leaders at recess and lunchtime. They are able to assist students in time of need, help to ensure students are playing fairly and nominate students for a weekly peer support award. Peer support leaders present this award at Monday morning assembly.
