Things are coming along quite smoothly for this year’s MWPS Family Fun Day.  The Rides are booked, the Stall Co-ordinators are getting their projects started and the Silent Auction donations, sponsorships and goods are rolling in.  A huge thank you to all who donated a jar filled with goodies for our Mystery Jar Stall.  We will have another “Out of Uniform” day this term, so keep collecting those jars and goodies.  



 A Maths Garden uses pavers, plants, patterns and sculpture to illustrate mathematical concepts.
  • Concepts of measurement, multiplication, time, shape, angle and comparison are illustrated throughout the garden.
  • A human sundial enables children to stand on the paving of the current month and tell the time from where their shadows fall.
  • Square metre pavers are measured out with centimetre marks, deciduous trees illustrate time's passage, plants in lines and groups explain multiplication and a giant compass shows obtuse and acute angles. 
  • Poles of varying heights and diameters explain averages and elastic between the poles creates different shapes.

This is what a Maths’ Garden can be, and more.
A school in Mill Park has created the above, and teachers from Mt Waverley Primary School have been lucky enough to have viewed their garden.

It is such a wonderful concept that we are now going to create our own at Mt Waverley Primary School. 

The money raised through this year’s MWPS Family Fun Day 
will fund the new MWPS Maths’ Garden.

Homemade bath salt is super easy and inexpensive to create.  Here’s how you can make some for yourself in a matter of minutes…


  • 1 cup Epson Salt
  • 1 cup Sea Salt
  • Essential Oil
  • Food Coloring

Gather your supplies and start by mixing 1 cup Epson Salt and 1 cup of Sea Salt together in a large bowl.  I used a beautiful pink tinted Sea Salt to give my salt a little variation of colors.

Add 3-6 drops of food coloring.  A little goes a long way, so start off with just a few drops and add until you get the perfect color.  Mix well.  {And then mix a little more!}

Add 5-10 drops of essential oil {I used Lemongrass} and mix, mix, mix. At this point your whole house will smell amazing and anyone that enters and sees you mixing this up will think you are Martha Stewart in disguise…just sayin’!


Year 2 families are co-ordinating this stall and we need the whole school to support this stall by 
contributing a clean plastic or glass jar filled with NON-perishable items. and no food or lollies. Some ideas for your jar’s 
fillings are:-
  • Crayons 
  • Cottonballs 
  • Bath salts 
  • Jewellery 
  • beads 
  • Paper clips
  • Post it notes 
  • Bouncy balls
  • Hair clips/ties
  • Buttons 
  • Rubber bands
  • Wacky bands 
  • Pencils 
  • Small toys 
  • Soaps 
  • Pokemon cards
  • pencil sharpeners
  • mini rulers 
  • rubbers 
  • stickers
  • crayons
  • textas
  • hair ties or hair ties & brush
  • mini cars

What other fillings can YOU think of?

Cello bags, cookies, ribbon and coloured card make a lovely presentation on a stall.
