Flats arrive from Peille, France

This week two more visitors arrived in an envelope with an airmail stamp. They come from a small village in the south-east of France called Peille. It is in the mountains and has winding streets, old castle ruins on top of the hill and a school with 65 students called Andre-Marie.

Here are the Peille flats, Anthony and Malaury, watching a movie with us on our special Big Day In at school.

Students at the school in Peille have sent us a letter with pictures and information about their village so we can learn about where they come from. Thanks for sending it in English! See below to find out about Peille.

Flat Sarah the Spy has been spying undercover in Peille for a while now, but she hasn’t reported back in for debriefing. What did you learn about Peille from reading their letter above?

What is Australian culture?

Students in Grade 1/2 have been talking lots about the culture and traditions of their families during Term 4. In Show and Tell they have been describing and showing pictures of Australian landmarks, bringing artefacts from Australia and from another country and talking about the things that their families like to celebrate and how.

Some students have even volunteered to give our visitors, the Flats, a taste of what life can be like for them in Australia. Here are some photos of the interesting experiences that Grade P-2 kids have shared with the visitors:

Are you doing something interesting with your family soon? If you think it would help overseas friends & visitors learn about Australia please invite a Flat person to come along!
