A reminder to all that as the weather heats up all children are required to wear the green school hat when they are playing out in the sun. If they are not wearing their hats they will be restricted to playing in the shaded areas in the COLA and under the classroom verandahs. Could you also please make sure that your child has their name on their hat as many hats end up in the lost property box.
Aurora College - If you have a student in Year 5 this year who is gifted/talented please read the following information about Aurora College carefully. Aurora offers selective classes in English, mathematics and science to gifted and talented Year 7-10 students from rural and remote areas across NSW. Students are chosen in the same way as students in all other selective classes in NSW government schools - via the NSW Selective High School Test. Year 5 students nominate to do this test at the beginning of Year 6.
Students can access Aurora through either of our local government high schools - Batemans Bay and Moruya.
To better understand the context of Aurora College, I invite you to visit the school website www.aurora.nsw.edu.au and/or to view the following short videos which explain how and why the school operates:

"Man Up" - this show will screen on the ABC at 8:30pm tonight. It discusses male suicide prevention and the issues around it. This is a very valuable show to watch, a little confronting but very worth while. Can you make time to watch it, or alternatively can you afford not to watch it.
