What's Happening?

16/06/2017
Congratulations to our debating teams who have performed so admirably in the past weeks.  These students have excelled themselves, demonstrated pride and passion and a growing confidence in their public speaking.  I would like to extend my sincere thanks to all the secondary teachers who also assisted them in developing these skills.  That’s what I call a community effort!

 

Congratulations also to the primary school students who competed at the Springsure District Athletics Carnival in Rolleston last Friday.   On a bright and breezy, but not too cold, day we saw outstanding efforts from our students.  We did claim the Aggregate Trophy again which is tremendous but, unfortunately the Ball Games trophy has a home in Rolleston for the next 12 months.  Next year!  Some of our primary and secondary students have now been selected to compete at the Central Highlands Trials in Emerald on 27/28 July.  Further information will be distributed early next week to those students.

Congratulations yet again to our amazing Cattle Club students whom we also acknowledged on Parade this morning as they shared their glittering prize and participation ribbons with us. They too have demonstrated a great deal of success but, more importantly, demonstrated terrific sportsmanship, support of each other and growing levels of confidence.  Their bright, colourful ribbons will also form part of the backdrop at tonight’s dinner.

From Monday 19th to Friday, 23rd June, all of our students from Prep to Year Eight, will participate in a daily dancesport program run by Footsteps Dance Company.  This program aims to provide an insight into traditional forms of dance, teach dancing skills and confidence, provide a high level of enjoyment and enhance students’ levels of fitness.  Dance has been taught to all of these classes as part of The Arts this term so I’m sure our students are well-prepared.  Further information regarding this program has been sent home with students today.  It does form part of our curriculum so it is expected that all students will attend.  We are very grateful for RREAP funding which has enabled our students to participate in this event.
