Science Fair Progress
Our first student meeting for the Science Fair was well received, with at least 100 students attending and showing their enthusiasm to enter. Their first task is to now decided on a category and a topic for their project. Once this is decided they can find their category in the booklet they received and follow the instructions on the page. All work is to be completed at home. Remember, students require to document their journey in a notebook with each page dated and what they did towards their projects each day they work on it. This is explained in detail in the booklet, which is also attached to the parent newsletter.
Projects are due 29th July (Mon Wk 4) so there is lots of time to get organised. If your student did not attend the meeting and still wishes to enter, just grab the booklet and off you go!
Any questions can be emailed to Bec Riley ([email protected])

On Tuesday Prep celebrated Under 8's Week. The theme this year was "Connecting to Culture through Play".
Students were engaged in a variety of activities that taught them about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cultures. Students rotated through all of the Prep classrooms, participating in singing, dancing, storytelling, art, caring for country and weaving activities. We were also fortunate enough to have Lalania Tusa from Paperbark Consultancy come along and share damper, facts, stories, artefacts and art activities with the students.

Constable Kurt came to the Year 5/6 parade today to reinforce the message of road safety to our seniors. He spoke about the need for all students to wear a helmet when riding to and from school and making sure that bikes and scooters are kept safe during the day by locking them up. He also reinforced with students that E-Scooters are illegal for Under 12 year old’s to ride and that a 12 year old must be supervised by an adult. Constable Kurt explained that there has been a 70% increase in accidents involving E-Scooters and a recent very serious accident involving a local 12 year old boy.
