Principal’s Report
Yesterday Year 5/6 travelled to Albury to watch the stage
production ‘The Last Soldier’ at the Albury Civic Centre.
Thankyou to our P&C for this wonderful opportunity to
follow up on the ‘Monkey Baa Theatre’ workshop that the
5/6 students participated in. The 5/6 students picked up
some tips from the live performance yesterday that they will
use in their drama production, ‘The Magical Land of Oz’,
next term.
Riverina Cross Country Recount
On Thursday morning my family and I had to wake up at
4am to get ready to leave at 5am in the morning, we were
driving to Gundagai for the Riverina Cross Country. We
only had time to have showers not breakfast because we

Jump Rope for Heart
On Friday the children demonstrated their skipping skills
at a Jump Rope for Heart exhibition. The audience was
entertained by class performances and individual and
pair skipping routines. The school raised $71.00 in gold
coin donations for the Heart Foundation.
Fruit Break reminder
Just a reminder that all our school from Kinder to Year 5/6
has daily fruit breaks each morning. Students are
encouraged to bring a piece of fruit to eat every day. The
natural sugar in fruit will give students a boost, especially if
they have had an early breakfast.
Work Experience Student
Tom Loats joins us this week from Finley High School as
part of his school's, work experience program. Tom is
enjoying working with our students and staff and being
back in his primary school setting.
