  1. Hello from Broome just thought I would send a warm hello your way. My name is Carolyn im Adam’s auntie and we are living in Broome for 3 years. It is a very different place it takes a little time to settle in but boy have we blended in after 10 months up here. We love the warm weather we keep wathing the weather down in Victoria and we are glad we are up here with this lovely sun shine. Broome is just a simple little place with a lot of heart the people are just so kind and friendly. We love the beach life, fishing and all the different things Broome has to offer. We are celerating the 40th year of the ‘Shinju Matsuri festival of the Pearl’,it’s to celebrate and acknowledge Broome’s unique culture, history and welcoming spirit. we have been to two events which have been great fun.Our two boys are enjoying school up here very different from Ocean Grove but it has been great for them to see and learn different things. Broome has many different cultures living here, the boys just had a NADIOC week to learn the abrigional culture which they enjoyed very much. We hope you look on a map and find where Broome is if you dont all ready know bye for now Carolyn

  2. Dear Mrs. Gridley and Junior G,
    We are going to Skipton Primary School until our house is finished. I like it here but I miss my St. Lukes’ friends. It has been flooding here and we saw the ABC News helicopter. I hope one day I can talk to you on skype but we haven’t got it yet. I hope you have fun at playtime and lunchtime. See you friends,
    from Adam.

  3. Hello Verona and the juniors at St Luke’s
    I’d had a great time this afternoon reading your blog. I go to lots of schools in Melbourne and what your are learnig about is just FANTASTIC!!!! I think you are SOOOOOOOOO CLEVER to be able to use the new technologies. Being able to skype all over the world is a wonderful way to connect with other students and teachers. Netx time I come to St. Luke’s I would love to come and see what you are doing for myself.

  5. Hi Mrs Gridley and Junior G,

    I really enjoyed checking out your blog and seeing all of the wonderful things that you have learnt about Mini Beasts and Bees. I also had a great time feeding and playing with Tony the turtle.
