Holiday Wishes

We hope that all families enjoy the time with their children and make the most of not being rushed or having to work around the school routine.  Teachers and children alike are looking forward to the opportunities to have a break and do some things of interest with their families.

Swan Hill and Roses Gap Camps

Thank you to all the staff and the parents (Mr. Cody and Mr. Gordon) that accompanied the children on each camp this year. Without the support of parents the cost of such camps would be prohibitive and we would not be able to meet the student to adult ratio with the appropriate gender mix.  It also allows for groups on camp to be of a reasonable size. We hope to share some camp photographs with you early next Term.

Perry Sandhill Excursion

On Monday, Yr. 5/6 students visited Perry Sand Hills, just outside Wentworth, as a culmination to their inquiry unit ‘Desert Survivors’. Mr. Baker, Mr. Pettit, Miss Barnes, Mr. Beer and Mr. McInerney accompanied the students. All students were briefed about the historical significance of the area and had further discussions regarding the specific adaptations of particular flora and fauna species. Mr. Baker and Mr. Beer cooked a tasty barbeque lunch for all to enjoy and all students (and Mr. Pettit and Miss Barnes) had a great time sliding down the dunes. Perry Sand Hills really is such an interesting and fun place to visit.

Classroom Helpers and Excursion Helpers

Thank to everyone who has come into the school to assist with Reading in Term 3.  Another big group of parents have assisted with transport and some have joined in on short and longer excursions as additional supporters. Some of the more notable ones have been the Swan Hill Camp (last week) and Roses Gap Camp (this week).  The school community support we get to undertake such excursions is greatly appreciated.

Nightly Reading

Congratulations to the many children that have exceeded 150 nights reading this year.  We cannot make children read at home and we cannot force parents to assist, but as a general rule we all make time to do what we think is ‘important’ or ‘enjoyable’.  Some children might make use of the coming holidays with parent help to borrow free books from the town library.  Children that read regularly generally do much better at school overall.  What is sometimes forgotten is the amazing help that good reading skills give to success in Mathematics.  

Family times are precious and sitting next to a child and reading to them is something that passes all too quickly as they grow up.  It is also a very effective way to develop the marvellous visualisation skills that children can use for improved comprehension. 

Children from birth to around 12 years of age can be read to with significant enjoyment being gained by the parent as well as the children.
