Mid­dle Du­ral Pub­lic School Notes

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - My Council - Ian McArthur School Cap­tain Rachael

2016 will be a huge year for Mid­dle Du­ral Pub­lic School as we cel­e­brate our 125th birth­day.

The two main events have now been set­tled on. There will be a Colo­nial Theme Day in March, close to the ac­tual birth­day and a birth­day party at the school in Septem­ber.

The Colo­nial Theme Day will be a fun day for the chil­dren and teach­ers with dress­ing up in pe­riod cos­tume, mu­sic, danc­ing, food and games all more in keep­ing with the late 1800s than now. This day will not be a pub­lic event, but one or more other schools might be in­vited to at­tend.

The birth­day party will be a big event, in­clud­ing a re­union for past stu­dents, cake cut­ting, a small num­ber of stalls and lots of sou­vi­neers. Sou­vi­neers will in­clude 125 year jer­seys and a 125 year book in elec­tronic form.

We will keep you up to date with ex­act de­tails closer to the event, but the best way to find out is to look at the Face­book page “MDPS: The First 125 Years”.

The new School Cap­tains, Rachael and Cameron have started the year with a Lead­er­ship Camp at Vi­sion Val­ley. The weather re­stricted many of the out­door ac­tiv­i­ties, but there was still plenty to do. The Pub­lic Speak­ing work­shop made a par­tic­u­lar im­pact on our lead­ers.
