Al­ready at the end of term 1 –time flies when you are hav­ing fun.

Years 4, 5, 6 thor­oughly en­joyed the days at Bathurst. It was great to spend time with Ar­ca­dia and Mid­dle Du­ral. Un­for­tu­nately, no large gold nuggets were found!

The whole school have been par­tic­i­pat­ing in a squash pro­gram run by Raj from NSW Squash As­so­ci­a­tion. The chil­dren had fun learn­ing rac­quet and ball skills with a cul­mi­nat­ing visit to Du­ral Squash Courts for a proper game.

What a great day was had by Kinder, Years 2, 3 and 4 cre­at­ing many won­der­ful Easter crafts in­clud­ing sun catch­ers, shav­ing cream eggs and painted eggs. The Easter bunny vis­ited our school and left choco­late eggs in the Sto­ry­book Gar­den – what a treat!

Years 5 and 6 had a great PI π day where the ex­plored the the­ory of PI π and its ap­pli­ca­tions not only in maths but in Cre­ative Arts as well.

Stu­dents are on the fi­nal ro­ta­tion of clubs with all stu­dents lov­ing cre­at­ing can­dles, pho­to­graph mon­tages, re­cy­cled pa­per and coloured sand jars.

Fi­nally, what a truly won­der­ful ex­cur­sion to the city for K, 2, 3 and 4 last Mon­day. The weather tried to dampen our spir­its, so we donned our rain­coats and tramped across the city of Syd­ney on a walk­ing Tour – the Har­bour Bridge, Cir­cu­lar Quay, Syd­ney Opera House, Royal Botan­i­cal Gar­dens, Cus­toms House and Mrs Mac­quarie’s Chair. A fan­tas­tic day with many foot­sore but happy lit­tle peo­ple.
