Week 7 Update

The countdown to camp is on; less than three weeks to go. You should have a gear list and parent helpers have been confirmed. On Wednesday this week a notice will come home with more details and a health form for you to complete and return to school by Wednesday March 21st.

Our Year 5 - 8 Duathlon (run, bike, run) is scheduled for next Thursday, March 22nd between interval and lunch. Entry forms out later this week. This is a school only event, there is no zone event. We would like to encourage as many children as possible to take part. The Duathlon will be our first 'Scoobie' competition of the year, points will be awarded for participation.

We have started a Tuesday afternoon buddy programme with Room 20 students and the Year 7 & 8 students. The aim of this programme is for our students to walk in someone else's shoes and develop empathy and awareness, as well as to get to know each other better. Each week six Year 7 & 8 students will be buddied up with six Room 20 students for an afternoon of art.

Our school fair is a week and a half away. Today a number of students put their names down to help out at the fair, in a range of capacities. If your child's help is required a notice with details will be coming home on Thursday.

Basketball trials are on Monday at lunchtime. There is still time before the end of this week to sign up.
