Thank you to everyone that volunteered at our Bunnings BBQ on Saturday. Fundraisers like these are not possible without the support of our school community. Despite the cold and wet Spring weather we raised $1500 on the day. These funds will go towards helping create a sensory garden.
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.
Reading at home every day has always been an expectation schools have because it supports the notion of regular practice leads to improvement.
Students should read every night in addition to the reading instruction and practice they are provided every school day.
