Ini­tia­tive, creativ­ity, con­cern for their en­vi­ron­ment and a great sense of fun. These were the in­gre­di­ents for Black Cock­a­too Day - an­other great day at Ar­ca­dia Pub­lic School in Septem­ber, or­gan­ised and run to­tally by our fab­u­lous year 5 and year 6 stu­dents. The day was a re­sult of dis­cus­sion at our Stu­dent Par­lia­ment where stu­dents put for­ward ideas to en­hance their school and the wider en­vi­ron­ment. Birdlife Aus­tralia were thrilled with the money raised to sup­port the glossy black cock­a­too and the younger chil­dren showed their en­thu­si­asm, dress­ing up and en­ter­ing the day’s ac­tiv­i­ties. Skye is pic­tured here in her prize win­ning black cock­a­too cos­tume – con­grat­u­la­tions Skye!

Aca­dia Pub­lic School se­nior choir are fab­u­lous! Their ded­i­ca­tion to learn­ing com­plex lyrics and parts, and re­hears­ing steadily over months, cul­mi­nated in them per­form­ing on stage at the Syd­ney Opera House in Septem­ber as mem­bers of the Arts North choir. An out­stand­ing achieve­ment! Closer to home, they are look­ing for­ward to per­form­ing at the Gal­ston Early learn­ing Cen­tre’s first mar­ket evening on Fri­day Oc­to­ber 20.

The thought of be­ing asked to spell in­creas­ingly dif­fi­cult words in front of a large au­di­ence didn’t faze Reuben, Ash­ley, William and Mathew when they re­cently rep­re­sented their school at the Dis­trict Pre­mier’s Spelling Bee. Each pro­gressed to a very re­spectable round. We’re re­ally proud of them for hav­ing the courage to stand and show off their spelling skills.

Come along to Ar­ca­dia Mar­kets on Novem­ber 18. As usual there will be some­thing for ev­ery­one at our fan­tas­tic mar­ket day. A classy car show and a huge va­ri­ety of stalls all set in the beau­ti­ful grounds of Ar­ca­dia Pub­lic School. Not to be missed!

Con­tact the school of­fice on 9653 1207 or visit www. ar­ca­di­ to find out more about our won­der­ful school where great things hap­pen ev­ery day.
