Volleyball Regional Championships

Last Thursday, nine Grade Six boys travelled to Swan Hill with Miss Mayne and Mr Cav, to compete in the Loddon Mallee Region Championships. The boys played one game against Kennington Primary School and were victorious! In the first set the nerves were evident and the boys went down. After a pep talk and some reassuring words, the boys calmed down and showed great composure and skill, winning the second set convincingly. It all came down to the third and final set. Win and we would progress to the State Championships, lose and this was the end of our volleyball campaign. Again, the boys won this set comfortably and have now qualified for the State Championships in Melbourne later this month. The hard work and dedication shown by all of these boys is commendable. Good luck in Melbourne!

Concert 2018

Costumes

All Costumes should be at school by Friday 9th November (your child should have bought home a note outlining what is required)

Concert organisation – Drop off & pick up

The concert is a wonderful experience, and we need to make sure the organisation is smooth. Managing 400 students to get on and off the stage can be tricky. Please read the flyer included which outlines the organisation for the “drop off & pick up”

Please read carefully and see your child’s classroom teacher if you have any questions
