Glenorie Pub­lic School

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - News - By Justin and Alys

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!
