A warm welcome back to Term 3 to all our students and members of our school community. We hope that you are refreshed and keen for the positive and busy term of activities ahead.
During the school vacation, many of our students attended the University of Wollongong Learning Labs at the Hanging Rock campus working on a diverse range of projects including - physics, mathematics, French, 3D modelling, Vietnam, stage production and many others.
The staff from the University were most impressed with the focus and interest of the students involved. Well done Blade, Elliot, Maya, Bethany, Charlie, Gretel, Kai, Katie, Laila and Shannon.
We recently received the results from the ICAS University of NSW Digitial Technologies
competition and the ICAS Science competition.
In the Digital Technologies competition, Shannon Wade received a High Distinction placing him in the top 1% of the entrants for this international competition. Super effort Shannon!
In the Science competition, Oliver Dyason received a certificate of Credit while
Hugh Lassau and Shannon Wade both received a Distinction. Well done boys.
The ICAS English competition will be held on Tuesday 2nd August.
Sporting Skills Programs
Over the course of Term 2, many students have been participating in the Sporting Skills Program which has involved coaching in a variety of sports, as well as the Premier’s Sporting Challenge which has been promoting fitness and activity with our students. The organisation for these activities has been coordinated by Mrs Morgan, and I thank her for her interest and effort in making these programs run successfully.
Parking in the bus bay before school and in the afternoon prior to school departure has been an issue in recent times, as has the illegal dropping off of students in the no stopping zone immediately outside the front gate. In the interest of safety for all students, we would ask that all families please follow the parking and stopping directions in the school precinct.
Department of Health
Yesterday, all students were given a note from the Department of Health regarding a confirmed case of whooping cough. If you did not receive this from your child please refer to the copy in this Scoop. Further enquiries should be directed to the Department of Health website or the Public Health Unit phone number
1300 066 055.
District Athletics Carnival
We hope that all of our students attending the District Athletics carnival at Surfside on Friday have an opportunity to give it their best and have some fun. We look forward to hearing about your day. (Attached to this Scoop is the “Order of Track Events” for the day.)
Winter Uniform Girls & Boys
A reminder that the correct winter uniform is:
Bottle green long pants (not black tights)
Red Sloppy Joe/hooded jumper/bottle green jacket
White long/short sleeve polo shirt or white skivvy.
Black tights are not part of the winter uniform. Black track pants can be worn on sport days.
