House Cross Country

Last Friday was the annual Mildura West House Cross Country event. All students competed for their house across the day earning points for their team and students who came 1st, 2nd or 3rd received a ribbon. At the completion of the day students assembled in the gym where Red (Darling) House was announced the winner. Despite the warm weather students displayed wonderful resilience all day and their behaviour was outstanding. A big thank you to all the wonderful parent volunteers who assisted on the day, without your support the day definitely wouldn’t have ran as smoothly.

ANZAC Ceremony









On Tuesday, we conducted a School Community ANZAC Ceremony. This opportunity allowed students to learn about the procedures and significance of the ceremony. We had our school leaders give a commemorative address, Grade 4P sing and a Special guest, John Barnes talk about what ANZAC Day means to him. The students showed great respect and I hope they try to exhibit the ANZAC spirit in their lives. I attended the DAWN service with our School Leaders, it was a moving experience. Thank you to the parents who rose very early to bring the school leaders to the ceremony. A BIG thankyou to our Office Manager, Elaine Brown for making the beautiful wreath. 







National Ride2School Day

National Ride2school Day is to encourage our students and families to be involved in any active travel such as walking, riding and skateboarding. Next week we will have our first Walking Bus for Term 1 to coincide with National Ride2School Day.  We have the Walking Bus once a month with the police and Neighbourhood Watch supervising it. Everyone is welcome: walkers, bikes, trikes, scooters and even prams. The ‘bus’ will leave the corner of Washington Drive and Riverside Avenue at 8:30am. You can ‘board’ the bus on the way!!

Grade 5 Lake Cullulleraine Camp Reminder

Have you seen your child at school lately? Log onto Seesaw.

Last Friday we sent a flyer home. Have you logged on to view

your child’s profile yet? It’ll show you a few snaps of classroom happenings.

What is Seesaw?

Seesaw is a secure online Journal to record photos, observations and comments, to build up a record of your child’s experiences during their time with us. This platform allows us to work with parents and carers to share information and communicate the children’s learning in and outside of the classroom.

Why use Seesaw?

We are always looking at ways we can improve our communication with parents. Seesaw will allow us to share more of what your child is doing at school and provide a window into the classroom. 

These are some of the photos that have already been shared on the SeeSaw app!!



Last Friday Tom Pratt and Ruby Hancock represented the school at the Sunraysia Primary Schools Swimming competition. Ruby competed in freestyle and breaststroke, coming 2nd and 5th in her heats. Tom competed in freestyle placing 4th in his heat. A wonderful effort by both students.

Entries are open to all age groups and anyone interested in entering needs to see Mr Hall by Tuesday 13th March. Obviously, entrants need to be very competent swimmers.
