Newsletter, Term 2, Wk 10

Hello / Kia Ora

Winter Sports – Y4-8
Congratulations to the year 4-5 team who won everything they played.
They played a phenomenal game of netball. Player of the day went to Sophia-Marie Barakat Adlam for sharing the ball with her team mates and letting Seth shoot some of the goals. Well Done! Our Y6-8 team tried their hardest but were unable to come away with as many points. Some great tries in rippa were scored by Caitlyn and Christina. Bianca scored our goal in the Hockey…and where would we be without the Melde boys… Hopefully we will have some picture for next week’s newsletter.

People Basics First Aid Training
We are very fortunate to have the opportunity for the senior class students to complete their People Savers basic first aid training next Monday 29th June. During the course students will learn their DRSABC, how to call for help, how to respond to broken bones, poisons, and burns and scalds. Please send a gold coin donation to cover costs.

Term two ends
Last day of term 2 is next Friday 3rd July. School resumes on Monday 20th July.

Education Review Office (ERO) visit
Thank you to the parents who came last week to talk to the Education Reviewers. We expect the draft report to be here in 20 working days and the public report to be final after 40 working days.

Good Sort of Sport
Behind every sports team are the unsung heroes who volunteer every week to coach, referee, drive the team bus or cut the oranges. People who are just ‘good sorts’ who get stuck in. Now is a chance for your school or sports club to recognise them and you could win $10,000 towards sports gear for your school or sports club – for competition trms and conditions visit
