Congratulations to our school cricket team and Coach Goodson for their excellent day out at Wednesday’s interschool cricket tournament. In a round-robin style event, Macarthur Street Primary School won all three of its matches over Invermay, Forest Street and Urquhart Park Primary Schools.
The School Council has been liaising with the Department of Education and the Victorian School Building Authority over a long period of time to have the school’s roof replaced. SPACES Design, contracted by the VSBA, have been designated as the project managers for this significant undertaking.
Selected senior students travelled to the Shrine of Remembrance in Melbourne today to conduct the school’s annual service on behalf of the 2nd 8th Battalion Association. The Battalion was formed in Ballarat during World War 2 with many of its men being previous students of our school.
What an outstanding event! This year’s Halloween Fair was hugely successful with an estimated crowd of 900 people visiting our school to enjoy the trick or treating, dressing up, stalls, sports, food, drinks, community services, and carnival attractions that were on offer.
The reviews are out and it was officially one of the ‘best concerts ever!’
What an amazing night of talent! It is so heart-warming to see everything come together on the stage. Such an event is not possible without a team of motivated people to drive it led by Mrs Seff.
Today all students had the opportunity to be involved with planting our new boundary trees. The pittosporums will line the western side of the oval along Doveton Street North and they will be hedged in a similar fashion to the ones at the back of the library.
We are experiencing the usual interest from the school community as parents go about the important task of selecting a school for their children who are beginning in Prep in 2020.
Our amazing school mural has recently been completed by Travis Price. Some of our grade 6 students were very fortunate to be able to assist Travis and Renee. The mural highlights our school name with many depictions of our school and its historical relationships with Ballarat featuring.
