Student of the Month Awards
Congratulations to the following students who were presented with Student of the Month Awards for June at our Whole School Assembly today.
Last Day of Term 2
For the last day of term tomorrow, the Student Representative Council (SRC) have organised a Casual Dress Day for the Secondary students and a Pyjama Day for the Primary students as a fundraiser to purchase equipment for students to use during recess and lunch times. Students are asked to make a gold coin donation. The SRC will also be running a sausage sizzle for secondary students - $2 per sausage and $2 for a soft drink.
Second Full-Page Ad in the Sunraysia Daily
Our second full-page ad was in Saturday's Sunraysia Daily. This time we wanted to thank the community groups, businesses and institutions that support our students to succeed and to highlight the contribution our students make to the success of our community.
Bus Pass Replacement
Buslink have informed the school that if a student requires a replacement bus pass, they will be required to pay $10.00 either to the school or to the Buslink office. The new pass will not be printed out and issued to the student until the payment has been received. Please remind students to take care of their bus passes to avoid this additional cost.
School uniforms can be purchased from the school’s main office between the hours of 8.45am and 4pm during the school week. If these hours are inconvenient for you, please ring the school to make an alternate arrangement.
