Yesterday we waved our Stage 3 (Yrs 5 & 6) students goodbye as they left for their week's excursion to Berry. I'm not too sure who was the most excited - the students, the parents or the staff. I'm not sure they (the students) will be as lively when they arrive home on Friday afternoon (I know the staff won't be).
On Wednesday 29 October it will be Stage 2's turn (Yrs 3 & 4) when they will leave on their three day excursion to Jindabyne.
Granite Town Jazz and Food Festival
Our classes have all been busy making floating star lanterns for the Friday evening section of the Granite Town Festival in Moruya this coming Friday evening. The festival sounds like lots of fun and apart from the great music and food, the floating lanterns sound beautiful! I would encourage everyone to at least come and participate in the Friday evening section - and admire the wonderful "star lanterns" made by Broulee PS students.
During the ’float’ there will be a running commentary as the lanterns are guided along the river, live music will be performed, and the lit works will be anchored within full view of Riverside Park at the conclusion of the parade. Lanterns will be strung from the Moruya Bridge and small biodegradable floating lanterns will be scattered across the river.
Check out the following link to get more information and to have some wonderful entertainment this coming weekend.:
Special thanks to Rachel Dunn and Clare Dunn for their work with this project.

Selective Schools Test
Information is now available for the Selective High Schools Admission Tests. The majority of these selective High Schools are located in the metropolitan areas however if any student is considering this as an option for High School they should contact Mrs Lynne Takacs for more information.
Hats: This term we revert back to our HAT policy. Children playing in the sun must wear a broad brimmed school hat, otherwise our policy is "no hat, you must play in the shade".
Crunch and Sip: This term we introduce our new "Crunch and Sip policy". While it's very similar to our old "fruit break" the new policy now includes the additional option of bringing vegetables too school. There is also an emphasis on drinking water. Students are always encouraged to bring water bottles to school which they can have on their desks in their classrooms (NOT sugar cordial drinks).
Special congratulations to the following students:
