This week marks the 100th Day of school for our Preps. They have all settled into the campus so well and are having lots of fun. Well done Rhylee, Roxy, Aidan & Summer! The students in Miss Woods class certainly had a great time celebrating the occasion.
This Friday is Science Day. The Scotsburn students will join the students at the Buninyong campus, meeting in the courtyard at the start of the day. Students are encouraged to dress up in the science theme for what is sure to be lots of fun.
A huge congratulations to our debating teams who were successful in winning their debate last week. They prepared and practised very hard, and should be extremely proud of themselves. We’ll keep our fingers crossed that the students make it through to the next stage of competition. Special thanks to Ms Geddes for all of the time and effort that she put in preparing the students. A big thanks also to all of the parents that went along to encourage.
Jeans for Genes Day
Last week, the students and staff from Scotsburn all contributed to raising almost $70. A big thanks to everyone.
Marbles in a Jar
Congratulations to Freya & Pat’s Family Group who won the Marbles in a Jar competition last week. Well done!
Congratulations to Jackson & Sam who received their pen licence at our assembly on Monday. They have been giving their best effort during writing sessions. Fingers crossed that some more can be handed out in the coming weeks.
