Today within the Butterflies Classroom they had set up Australia Day painting activity in the room, where children had an opportunity to learn about Australian flag, the colours on the flag (red, blue and white ) and our wonderful stars. As Australia day is coming closer , this is a great way for the children to start learning about our beautiful country.
Throughout this experience it lead to discussions about different state flags such as: Victoria, Tasmania ans New South Wales.
