Ar­ca­dia Pub­lic School’s “Open Day with a Dif­fer­ence”

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - School News -

At Ar­ca­dia Pub­lic School, we think dif­fer­ently. What bet­ter way to meet the stu­dents and teach­ers and ex­pe­ri­ence our amaz­ingly beau­ti­ful school grounds, than to at­tend our Agri­cul­tural Day? Pre-school­ers, par­ents, sib­lings and Ar­ca­dia school stu­dents were in­vited to at­tend our third Agri­cul­tural Day on Fri­day 25th May. The Royal Agri­cul­tural So­ci­ety ran four fan­tas­tic ac­tiv­i­ties on the day in­clud­ing; grain grind­ing, sheep drench­ing, shop to ta­ble and chook wash­ing. That’s cor­rect – wash­ing and blow dry­ing a chicken! You could hear squeals of de­light com­ing from ev­ery­where with so much ex­cite­ment on the day. One stu­dent men­tioned to a teacher “This is go­ing to be the best day of my life!” A bril­liant day was had by all and a huge thankyou to the RAS for their ex­per­tise on the day, for bring­ing their fan­tas­tic re­sources and teach­ing us about farm­ing, pro­duce and an­i­mals. Thank you also to the Cape fam­ily for their on­go­ing sup­port in the or­gan­i­sa­tion of the day. We also loved hav­ing Daniela Balmer and Gal­ston Early Learn­ing Cen­tre at­tend on the day. Thank you for shar­ing this fun day with us. We will host an Open Day on Wed­nes­day Au­gust 1 at 10am. Come along to find out more about our won­der­ful school where great things hap­pen ev­ery day.

Our Yr 6 team re­cently en­joyed a great de­bate at Gal­ston Pub­lic School. The topic was “We Should Take Tech­nol­ogy Free Days Each Week” and Ar­ca­dia was ar­gu­ing against the topic. The de­bate was en­gag­ing and en­joyed by the Year 5 and Year 6 au­di­ence. Well done Ar­ca­dia PS de­bat­ing team!

Friends, fam­ily, de­li­cious food and a great movie all made for a fab­u­lous night out on June 16 when the Ar­ca­dia PS com­mu­nity gath­ered for a fun-filled night. Thank you very much to the spon­sors who sup­ported the evening and es­pe­cially to the Gal­ston Branch of Bendigo Bank whose gen­er­ous fund­ing makes such a dif­fer­ence to our school and the wider com­mu­nity. We are very grate­ful to the Gal­ston Branch of Bendigo Bank as they re­spond to the needs of their com­mu­nity and work with us in achiev­ing our goals.
