PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT INFORMATION SESSION
On Tuesday 8th November, students in Year 5 and Year 6 as well as the female students in Year 4 attended a very informative Personal Development information session facilitated by Mrs Margaret Burns. Mrs Burns, from Narrabri Community Health, spoke with the students in an age appropriate manner discussing their physical, mental and emotional changes. With a parent or guardian also in attendance, it aimed to provide an opportunity for further family decisions at home. The session aligned with the Stage 3 PDHPE syllabus to educate students about these changes and how these facets make each of us unique.
For Remembrance Day our School Captains Romeo Backhouse-Smith and Charlee Dickinson attended a Remembrance Day Ceremony at the Narrabri RSL. Romeo and Charlee were commended for their excellent public speaking skills and well prepared presentation on the importance of Remembrance Day.
As a school, we paid our respects to the Diggers through a remembrance prayer and service under the COLA. The students coloured and created their own poppies to lay under the flag poles.
