Hot weather

We have had a very hot couple of days but kids still learnt lots and were happy to spend more time inside under the coolers. It’s important that they have their hats on as we move closer to summer.

Grounds Update

We are looking forward to having the shade erected over our playground next week. They will provide great protection from our hot Mildura sun.

The children’s NAIDOC week stones have now been laid in concrete in our Koori Healing garden. They look amazing, go and check it out. 

PLEASE HELP – Little Lost Books

Every year we spend approximately $10,000 purchasing little books which your child taken home to read. These books are vital in the process of teaching your child to read. But they are easily lost - they go hiding under couches and beds, behind shelves and in other tiny places.  Please have a really, really good search and send them back to school.

40 Hour Famine Backpack Challenge

Every day children are forced to flee from their homes  in search of food & safety. Over the next 2 days, 23 G6 students will be taking part in the 40 Hour Backpack Challenge.
