By Liz Mellino

It was a celebration of 100 days at Sirius College in Shepparton on Wednesday.

Foundation students marked the milestone with a day filled with activities based around the number 100.

Students decorated 100-day masks and wore hand-made T-shirts to mark the special occasion.

‘‘It is amazing to see how far they have come in 100 days,’’ Foundation teacher and primary co-ordinator Tarbinder Pandher said.

‘‘There has been so much growth in their reading, writing and social development.

‘‘They have loved celebrating the day and felt very special.’’

The day was not just for students, with parents also invited to a 100-day afternoon tea to acknowledge their contribution and hard work during the term.

‘‘We also celebrated our Foundation parents for the part they have played in supporting their children in the first 100 days of school,’’ Ms Pandher said.

‘‘They were invited to join their children for activities in the class and an afternoon tea.’’
