Year 5/6 students commemorated Remembrance Day by visiting Fort Nepean at the Point Nepean National Park. The weather was perfect and the children learnt a lot about the fort’s history. At 11AM we held our minutes silence after listening to the last post at the Quarantine Station. As always our children behaved brilliantly and represented their school with honour.
It is with great sadness that we bid Mrs Hill farewell as she begins her life as a retiree; sailing the Greek Islands with Mr Hill!
Gretta devoted her life’s work in making a difference in the lives of countless children. There was never a dull moment as Gretta injected enthusiasm, humour and knowledge into our school. We wish her all the vey best in her new life and hope she doesn’t forget about us! We welcome Mrs Gee to our school as our new art/science teacher as well as foundation support.
The 5/6 students were lucky enough to be invited to the HMAS Cerberus Summer Ceremonial Parade on Friday the 18th of March. Thankfully we decided to brave the cold and the rain because the parade was outstanding to watch. Students then visited the museum on the base where we explored the history of the base for several hours. A big thank you to Chief Petty Officer Mulheron for organising the day.
Our swimming program commences on Monday the 30th of November running until Thursday the 17th of December. Our swimming carnival is on the 8th of December. The 2015 Swimming Timetable details each grade’s swimming schedule.
On Wednesday the 21st of October the boys and girls volleyball team went off to represent our school having both progressed to the District competition. Both teams competed valiantly, and whilst the boys were knocked out (only narrowly losing) the girls won the Grand Final and will now progress to the Southern Metro competition. Once again, our students represented themselves and their school beautifully. A big thanks to Mr. Barden for organising the day and to April for coaching both teams!
