Dear Students and Families,

It is hard to believe week six of term three is coming to¬†a close. There are many things to report on today and¬†most have a sports or activity theme. We welcome¬†back to school Kane in upper juniors who spent the¬†weekend in Canberra representing Victoria in the¬†National Cross Country championships. He raced¬†twice with outstanding results ‚Äď third and fourth in the¬†two races. We acknowledged his performance with¬†great enthusiasm at our school assembly on
Wednesday.

Staying on the sports theme a number of¬†our upper junior and senior students are competing in¬†an all-day interschool sports carnival tomorrow and¬†then next week four senior students ‚Äď Josh S, Josh K,¬†Jessie B and Rory D are representing the school in a¬†regional football competition. These four students will¬†then combine with students selected from other¬†schools to represent southern region to compete with¬†the northern region. We look forward to hearing about¬†their outcomes.

The swimming program continues with both upper and lower juniors taking part. The students are enjoying the challenge and the feedback from staff indicates they are making great progress and are proud of their efforts.

Next week is Literacy and Numeracy Week with some highlights including special awards and activities at assembly. As usual all parents are welcome to attend and you are encouraged to stay for a cuppa in the Welfare Room afterwards.

As you are aware Tuesday was a pupil free day. The staff spent the day learning about how to build resilience. The skills learnt will be beneficial to the staff directly as well as adding new knowledge to continue supporting students as they experience challenges.

With only three weeks of term left the school concert is quickly approaching. If you have not purchased tickets, you may want to organize this soon.
