Last Tuesday, a group of highly enthusiastic senior students performed at the the Moruya High School MAD evening (Music, Art and Drama). Our students have been working with Mr Cullen from Moruya High School throughout the year, practising and refining their performances in preparation for this event.
Mr Cullen was wildly enthused by our performances and has expressed his his congratulations to all involved. The feedback from our students was overwhelmingly positive.
Pushing yourself outside your comfort zone and performing live are challenges that will build positive character lasting memories.
A huge thank you to the parents who helped with transport to the rehearsal last Monday. A great event.
Community Volunteers Morning Tea
Yesterday we held a thank you morning tea for the many community volunteers who assist in the learning journey at Broulee Public School. It always amazes us how many people contribute their time to assist our students. Indeed, it is only on these occasions where most of the volunteers are gathered together that you get a real sense of the massive contributions being made.
It was especially pleasing to welcome many new faces at the morning tea.
To all who give their time so freely, please know that your efforts are much appreciated and your contributions do make a difference in the lives of our students. We hope to see you back in 2014.
Year 6 Farewell
On Wednesday evening we will be holding a farewell dinner and disco for our departing year six students. The evening will start at 6.00pm in the school hall and finish promptly at 9.00pm. Please note that this event is for Broulee PS year six students only.
Year 6 Farewell Assembly
On Tuesday 16 December there will be a Farewell Assembly for our year six students. At this assembly, there will be a short audio visual presentation, a small gift will be given to each student and year six will present a small gift to the school. Parents are most welcome to attend. The assembly will start at 2.15pm in the school hall.
School Learning Support Officers
We are indeed very fortunate to have a dedicated, hard-working team of Student Learning Support Officers (SLSOs) in our school. These people are the front line in delivering much-needed support and assistance to some of our students who are most in need and to the classes they work in. Most of our team finished their year last Friday and I'd like to take this opportunity to say thank you for the care and wonderful commitment you bring to our classrooms.
Thought for the Week
What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.

iPad Educational Apps
With iPads and iPods on the Santa wish list of many students, it is timely to remind you that there is an excellent guide to free and low cost educational apps for both Apple and Android products on the iCentre website. Mathematics, English, creativity and more. It's certainly worth a browse.
Learn to Swim Program
During the last two weeks, over 50 students have been busy practising their swimming skills. A valuable skill for us all. Thank you to Mrs Enright for her organisation and thank you also to Mrs Isbester and Mr Mick Cameron for taking the students each day.
Last Tuesday's school disco was a wonderful event which was enjoyed by many enthusiastic students.
Thank you to Natalie Greenway and Natalie Fairweather for your fabulous organisation of the evening and special thanks to all family members who assisted during the night - we appreciated you time and effort.
Final day of school
Just a brief reminder that the last day for pupils this year is Wednesday 18th December.
Today we held our Presentation Day ceremony for 2013. Thank you to the many people who attended and witnessed an excellently run ceremony by our current captains, Heidi, Chloe, Eddie and Lachlan.
Congratulations to all students for your efforts this year and well done to the recipients of awards at the ceremony. Full details and photos will appear in a future issue of the Scoop.
