Premiers' Reading Challenge

It is great to see so many students entering their books online for the Challenge. The following students have done so well and have actually finished the challenge:- Olivia Newberry – Prep B, Maxie Brown – 1M, Maddison Goldsworthy – 2/3C, Luke Turnbull – 2A. There are also many students so close to finishing, keep up the good work. Going home with this newsletter is a rundown on the Challenge and the consent form and Challenge Checklist. If you have any questions come and see Janine in the library.


We had planned for our Year 5/6 students to attend the Mildura Waves ‘Swim and Survive’ program – (Week three this term. 27th-31st July) This will now be cancelled. There are a number of sport commitments on this term for Grade 5/6 along with some exciting academic events (Invention Convention and Book Launch) and of course camp for the Grade 6’s. We felt that the Swimming program, on top of these commitments, would be too disruptive to student learning. If you have any questions, please contact the school.
