National Tree Day 2014

Planting new trees and maintaining existing ones is very important to us.  Our playground hosts a variety of bird species and other small, native animals. By looking after our trees, not only do we sustain a natural habitat for the birds and other animals, but we also do our bit to lessen the effects of global warming.

We recently celebrated National Tree Day with the assistance of staff from Wollongong Botanic Gardens. Together, we planted a new bush tucker garden, along with a feature garden outside the main school building.

Choral Festival Celebrities!

Congratulations to our senior choir, who performed as part of the opening night of the 2014 Wollongong Schools' Music Festival. This year the festival turned 60, so we also got to be media celebrities! Win TV filmed part of our final rehearsal and the footage was shown as part of the news broadcast - probably at about the same time that we were getting ready to sing! Illawarra Mercury also paid us a visit, interviewing both Mrs Hamers and one of our choir members.

Loom Band Day

On the last day of Term 2, Year 6 organised a loom band activities afternoon. Children were asked to bring in and wear loom band creations, and contribute a gold coin donation. The $250 that was raised was originally tagged to go towards the Year 6 farewell, but Year 6 students decided to donate the money to the UNHCR Iraq appeal instead. In their own words, "The Iraqi people need the money more than we do. Lots of them don't have food and water, but we do."

Rugby Gala Day 2014

Our 1st XV travelled to Nowra to compete in a statewide rugby knockout competition. We tried hard all day but the opposition was just too good. For most of the boys this was their first taste of rugby. Still, everyone went home satisfied with the team's performance. We competed against teams from around the south coast of NSW and learnt a great deal from the experience. Most importantly, everyone learnt that rugby is all about having fun, supporting one another and being respectful to your opponents.
