Congratulations to our two Aerobics teams who participated in the State Championships in Sydney on the weekend. Both teams received silver for their event and the Littlies team have qualified for Nationals! Well done to both teams and thank you to Ms Morton, Miss Emily and Miss Davis for working with the teams. Congratulations to the Starstruck dancers who performed last weekend at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre. The girls gave a magical performance and represented our school with pride. Well done! Well done to Emily, Lucy and Koby who recently participated in a workshop to redesign our Community of Schools logo. The trio did an incredible job of sharing their ideas. The new logo will be revealed soon. Well done to the students who attended the recent netball gala day! You were great ambassadors for our school.
This Friday is the last day for Term 2. I wish everyone a safe and happy holiday. Students will resume school for Term 3 on Tuesday 18 July.
This week we are celebrating NAIDOC Week. Today we were lucky enough to have Kentan Proctor from the Bahtabah Aboriginal Land Council talk to the students about local Aboriginal artefacts and the history of the area. Students will be engaged with activities throughout the week to celebrate the Aboriginal culture and our special NAIDOC activity day will be held on Thursday, beginning with our NAIDOC assembly.
Teachers have been working hard writing Semester 1 reports for students. These reports will be available through the Sentral portal this Thursday. If you need assistance to access the reports through the portal, please contact the school office.
Our next P&C meeting will be held this Wednesday 28 June 6pm at Warners Bay Tavern. All parents are welcome to attend.
Respect at Sporting Events:
A reminder to parents attending sporting events to be respectful towards umpires and competing teams. It was disappointing to hear that parents from our school were being disrespectful to others at the recent netball gala day. We enter gala days for our students to have fun, learn about a sport they may not engage in regularly and practise good sportsmanship. It is important for everyone to remember they are role models for students at these events.
