School Athletics Sports













Last Friday 15th July at the Old Aerodrome Ovals, the weather turned it on for a fantastic day spent at our Athletics Sports. With the support of Staff, Parents and an entourage of Students from Merbein P-10, the day ran very smoothly indeed! Special thanks also to Renae and her support for the wonderful lunch provided. In what was an unexpected outcome, the final standing were:





Research allowed us to narrow it down to at least 17 years since MACQUARIE held the title!! 


We are very excited to launch our new school value – RESILIENCE

Resilience refers to a child’s ability to overcome or bounce back from anything that they find challenging, including events that seem relatively minor to others. This is a very important Value because Resilience shares a close relationship with mental health. Being able to bounce back from challenges or adversity is a significant factor that supports children’s mental health.

We will launch our new school value next week at the SRC Activity day. The students will be taking part in many activities focussing on Resilience. The Grade 6 students will then organise some ball games which symbolise our theme “bounce back and forward”.

All children are asked to wear sporting clothes for the day.

Please chat to your children about Resilience.

Sustainability Ambassadors

Last week the Sustainability Ambassadors had a guest Journalist visit, Jacinta Allen-Gange from Mallee Catchment Authority. The students were interviewed about their recent Lake Ranfurly visits and the difference they made to the site. Jacinta was amazed by our students’ thoughtful responses and their ability to articulate what they hoped should happen in the future at Lake Ranfurly.  The Ambassadors that had been involved in ‘The Lake Ranfurly Birds and Plant App’ were also given a chance to relate and show their experiences especially their drawings of the birds.  



Yesterday the year 6 interschool netball team played down at Mansell Reserve for the Loddon Mallee Title and were successful!

The girls won all their three games. Firstly, against Irymple South 22-6, secondly a very close game against Sacred Heart 10-8 and lastly against The Lake PS 28-2. The girls put their best effort into every game and represented West with great sportsmanship and respect. The team will now represent our region at Swan Hill next term. Congratulations girls and the best of luck for Swan Hill!

It was so much fun but at the same time a bit nerve-racking. We were all pumped and ready to play. In the end it was worth it all! – Aimee

It was fun and challenging at the same time. The girls news! ­– Illy 

Years 5 and 6 Environmental Science Program

This poster featuring birds that can be found at both Lake Ranfurly and Lake Hawthorn was launched at the ' Make the Lake' event last Saturday, June 11th at Lake Hawthorn. The poster features our students' bird drawings and poetry. It will be displayed on the Lake Hawthorn display board near the bird hide. Thank you to Mallee Catchment Authority for sponsoring this program. A special thank you to all students involved for their dedication and initiative.

Tree Planting at Lake Ranfurly

Last Thursday 6OL represented our school in the community by taking action for World Environment Day. Our students planted 75 trees at Lake Ranfurly to enhance the walk way areas and to prevent people going off the tracks. We planted Maireana pyramidata [Black bluebush, Atriplex lindleyi [Flat-top Saltbush or Lindley's Saltbush ] Atriplex nummularia [Old Man Saltbush] Melaleuca halmaturorum [Blistered Paper-bark] and Sarconoza praeox [Pigface] colour from yellow, orange, red to purple – very suitable for our gardens. 6OL were terrific ambassadors for our school and certainly worked effectively as a team to achieve a fantastic result. Thank you to Nardia Baker MRCC Environmental Sustainability Education Officer for all of the organisation and Mallee Catchment Authority for sponsoring the buses for this program.
