Parent Opinion Survey

Many parents/carers were randomly selected to complete a survey.

A letter was sent home last week with the details.

A gentle reminder phone call will be made next week just in case you have forgotten to complete the survey.

SRC News by Kate Crouch and Harmony Brougham

Last Term the SRC had an Animal Activity Day to raise money for SARG (Sunraysia Animal Rehousing Group). Our aim was to save one dog and we have!

The money we have raised will benefit the dog in so many ways; by getting it vaccinated, de-sexed, wormed, microchipped and also for the dog to have a medical check up.

If anything is found wrong with the dog it will help pay the vet fees and for special medication that might be needed. 

We hope the dog will be named Westy!

At the Assembly last Friday it was a pleasure to donate a cheque for $440.00 to Caroline Dufty for SARG from all of us at Mildura West. 

Walkathon

Congratulations to everyone who raised money at our recent Walkathon.

We raised a total of $4,311 to go towards our new playground equipment. 

New Playground

We are very, very excited to inform our school community that we have purchased a new playground. Our School Council has raised money towards this wonderful initiative.

Last week our SRC (Junior School Council) had input on the design and colour of the playground.

It will be on the back lawn area (next to the car park). We are hoping it will be installed in September.

It’s going to be so exciting!!
