This is the blog page for the Grade 4/5 Unit at our school. We are 50 amazing kids and 2 fantastic teachers and we all love to learn. Our school is in Devonport, Tasmania; the southernmost and only island state of Australia. Devonport has a population of about 30 000 people. We are very lucky that our school is right near the CBD. From our classrooms we have wonderful views of the Mersey River and Bass Straight. We can watch the ships come and go when we need some inspiration! We can walk to lots of great places in our town too – the beach, the art gallery, the theatre and several community sports facilities. Our school ground was once going to be a botanical gardens so we have several very large and very old trees in our playground.
