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.

The Walking Bus!

What better way to celebrate Walk Safely to School Day than with pikelets, muffins, fruit and a morning walk around Mount Ousley! At 8:15am, the MOPS Walking Bus headed off on its inaugural journey, ending in a delicious healthy breakfast at the school gates. Thank you to all of the kids and parents who joined us for the event! We had over 50 children participate, which was an amazing result for our very first Walking Bus. (A special thank you to the families who don't live in area, but still drove to the start of the trail just to participate!) If you'd like to see some photos of the journey, click through here
