Interschool Cross Country.
Our Interschool Cross Country team did themselves and the school proud with a fantastic effort at the recent carnival. Our school came Runners Up and brought home the Meritorious trophy. The support that the team gave each other was wonderful to see.
Congratulations to those who won medals - Grace, Ella W, Gabe, Jemimah, Noah and Zeus, and the entire team on their personal achievement on the day!
Book Week Parade.
Our students looked great in their costumes for the Book Week Parade. Our thanks to families for supporting this event along with the Library visits that many of the classes were involved in.
Unfortunately Edu-Dance are unable to work with our School during Term 4. We are currently looking for other alternatives to replace the Edu-Dance program for this year.
Our Recycling Initiatives update.
As a follow up from the recent Beeswax Wrap incursion, I discussed with the students about the idea of a ‘Plastic Free Thursday.’ This suggestion originally came up from one of our Year 3 students earlier in the year along with a great poster. There was a lot of enthusiasm about having a go, even if only in a small way. This initiative may not be fully achievable for all families at present but we thought that we would run it until the end of term on Thursdays and then look at Term Four.
Currently we are recycling milk bottle tops to send away, to be turned into prosthetic limbs. At our school we recycle old mobile phones, batteries and paper. Families are welcome to bring these items [except paper] to school where we have Recycle Bins outside the Year 4-6 block.
Two of our staff have undertaken a ‘Wastewise’ course and along with some interested parents and the P&C, we would like to do some more work in this recycling/sustainability area over the coming months. Pass on a message if you have an interest in this area as well.
Our thanks to our parents: Stephanie, Nicole and Ben for the latest additions to the Sensory garden. The weighing scale and other improvements are being well used by students.
Good Luck to Millie - Year 3 and Malia - Year 4 who have been selected to compete in the State Championships for Trampoline-Gymnastics both individual and synchronized later in the year!
A skateboard was found on the Basketball Courts recently. If you may know the owner could you let the office know.
Fathers’ Day Breakfast.
On Friday we welcome fathers and other representatives from families for our Fathers’ Day Breakfast. Thank you to our staff for putting this together again for 2019.
Our Open Evening is on next Thursday between 5:30pm-7:00pm. Our thanks to the P&C for organising for food to be available and to Mrs Colkin and her team who are organising the Scholastic Book Fair. Mr Kaloczy is again putting together students who have volunteered to show us how much they have improved in their music activities.
