As part of the Corangamite Shire health initiative we are again taking part in Walktober. Each day starts with a brisk walk and our afternoon sessions have focused on road and personal safety.
Our students returned to a beautifully Spring cleaned yard. Huge thanks to our tiny but efficient team The Robb, Van Eck, Crole, Vogels, Bennett and Taylor families. Well done.
Training is underway for our Bike Ed program. Already this week students have improved their bike control skills through activities such as slow turn courses.
Our upper department students worked with Meagan, from St John's, to learn about what to do if you are bitten by a snake or stung by insects. Great timing as we head into Summer in our environment.
Our 'Earn & Learn' items have arrived ready for term 4. We collected 9326 stickers in total, and have been able to order both play and learning items for our students. Thanks to all who collected.
Results from our AFL 9's events: The 3/4 mixed team participated with enthusiasm and great sportsmanship. Likewise, our year 5/6 girls' team, who finished second overall on the day did an amazing job.
For term 3 we had 11 students who qualified for the 100% attendance award and a further 27 who attended 95% or more for the term. Well done to Imogen who won the lunch order prize.
