House Athletics Sports
On Wednesday 11th March 2020, our annual House Athletics Sports will be held at Mountain Road Reserve commencing at 10.00AM. This is a whole school event and is not an ‘opt in, opt out” activity. Students are expected to attend as they would on any other school day.
Please ensure that the children from are wearing runners, correct sports attire, their school hat, sunscreen and have a drink bottle on the day. Children are also encouraged to wear the colours that represent their house. It is going to be massive fun!!!!!!!!
After a very late call out via uEducateus, we now have extra parents who have offered their assistance for this day and I thank them very much. Without this extra assistance offered as a result of this plea for help, we should have enough parents to ensure that the day will go ahead. Massive thanks to you all as we just can’t do it without you!!
I would like to thank everyone for the excellent job done in cleaning up our school grounds last week for our Clean Up the School day. Gardens were pruned and weeded, rubbish cleared and paths swept. The school grounds look so tidy! I am thrilled!!! Thanks to Tim Stapleton for coordinating this work – top job!
Thank you to Graham Simpson, our handyman, for the massive amount of work that he is doing both on buildings and the grounds. All that he does for us has been much appreciated.
Bottom Oval Update
Engineers have surveyed the site and plans are currently being developed to replace the three tiers of sleepers and the steps to the oval. The project manager, during my early conversations with him, has indicated that the demolition works will be undertaken during the next vacation period with the project completed by the end of term 2. This is at an anticipated cost of several hundreds of thousand dollars to the Department of Education and Early Training.
Shane Pearton will be enjoying a brief period of leave on the 12th March until his return to work on the 17th March 2020. Loved by all of the students and staff, Janelle Dale has been employed as Shane’s replacement for the two days.
Just a reminder that EVERY form of communication is now done via this communication platform. Massive congratulations to you all because the take up rate has been astounding.
