Glenorie Public School
Welcome back everyone to school! After a relaxing two and a half weeks of holidays, we are eager to learn. As soon as school started, we celebrated the ANZACs by having an ANZAC commemoration ceremony. Each class made wreaths and the SRC and the Captains laid them at the cenotaph. We would like to thank the captains of Galston High and their principal for attending our ceremony. Lest we forget.
To get the students in Year 1 to read more, Dural Library has a club called the Froggy Reading Club. The Year 1 students are encouraged to borrow from the library and record their borrowing, and whoever in the class borrows the most and reads the most gets a very special prize! I wonder what it will be.
After training very hard, Glenorie students participated in our cross country. We all enjoyed the day, pushing ourselves to the limit and testing our stamina. We cheered for each of our houses (Emus, Wallabies, Red Roos and Kookas) and showed true sportsmanship. Congratulations to all students who participated and good luck Zone runners.
To fundraise for the Year 6 farewell, we held a Mother’s Day Stall and Raffle! Students brought in money to buy $5 or $6 gifts to give to their Mums on Mother’s Day. Thank you Nati Bros Roses for donating a gift voucher for our raffle (after year 6’s very persuasive letters!)
Congratulations Year 3 and 5 on the completion of the NAPLAN tests. They all did their best to achieve the highest result possible, and we wish them good luck when their results come out.
This year, Glenorie Public School is hosting Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea. Gather, Share, Give is hosted by the Cancer Council to raise awareness of cancer. Glenorie hopes to see you there at Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea.
Keep 18th September open in your calendar because it’s Glenorie’s famous country fair! There will be a silent auction for firewood in the office. It is part of the country fair, but we are doing it now because we don’t think you’ll want your firewood in September!
