We are excited to be holding our annual STEAM Week again in 2022. Students will have the opportunity to imagine, action and showcase their ideas in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics as they explore our theme ‘MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE’ (adapted from this year’s National Science Week theme).

Key Dates:
  • Now: Register your interest in sharing your STEAM related career, skills, or interest with a group of students

Families and friends of Woodend are invited to visit classes to share about their interest or career in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and/or Maths. This valued part of the STEAM Week program provides students with an opportunity to see the wide range of pathways offered through STEAM. If you have something to share we would love to hear from you! Please read and complete the form sent home or contact your child’s teacher for more information.  There is also a note attached.

  • Term 3 School Holidays: Families are invited to take part in our 2022 design challenge

We encourage families to take part in this fun challenge over the holidays. Do you have something old, unused, or damaged at home? How can you repurpose it into something that is ‘more than meets the eye’?

This challenge invites your family to think creatively and sustainably, solve problems and have fun as you work together to find an unexpected use for an everyday item. 

We ask that all designs are brought to school on or before Wednesday of Week 1, ready to be displayed in our Expo beginning on Thursday evening.


  • Tuesday 18/10 @ 5pm: Arts Showcase (virtual event)

In a similar format to 2020 and 2021, students who learn an instrument at school or participate in special interest Arts programs have been invited to record a performance for our annual performing arts showcase. 

The 2022 Arts Showcase will be made available to stream from 5pm via our News Blog and Woodend Primary School Facebook page. 


  • Thursday 20/10 & Friday 21/10: STEAM Week Expo

Friends and family of Woodend are invited to visit our STEAM Week Expo. Each class will have their STEAM Week learning on display, alongside family’s ‘More Than Meets the Eye’ Design Challenge artefacts and some special guest performances.

The expo will be open on Thursday the 20th of October from 6-7pm & Friday the 21st of October from 8.30am-12.30pm. Guests are welcome to come any time during these sessions, no booking necessary. 

We are privileged to have Member for Black, Mr David Speirs, join us for our Expo on Friday at approximately 11.30am.
