Final Tally from the Drought Relief Fundraiser Event

The total amount raised for the Year 6 led fundraising event towards the drought relief appeal was $1,546.00. The Year 6 students raised this amount over a period of two weeks through donations, guessing competitions and a special ‘farm style’ lunch.

For fun, we had a year level colouring competition and lucky dips at the ‘farm style’ parade. The Year 6 students led well and with a high sense of involvement and purpose. The funds will be sent to Rural Aid which is the organisation responsible for directing the funds to the drought relief appeal.

The generosity of our families is ever present and always very much appreciated.

Summer uniform is to be worn by all students and they are all requested to take pride in their performance appearance with well groomed hair, ribbons and polished shoes.

We look forward to a wonderful evening of music and a showcase of the many talents and skills evident in the Junior School. All year levels will perform and we will all watch with pride.

STEM in Action

Last week our Year 4 students excitedly took home their bags that they have been making in STEM as part of their materials unit. As you can see from their faces, they are exceptionally proud of their work and the learning that went with it. I wanted to take a moment to thank all of those that donated fabric to this experience. The girls have enjoyed finding out the stories behind each piece, from leftover quilting fabric to donated old shirts. It has truly added to the experience, and each bag is unique.

Thank you for your generosity.
