P&C fund­ing school pro­grams

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

The Ber­ri­gan Pub­lic School P&C Com­mit­tee has been very busy, and have as­sisted in im­prov­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for a num­ber of the students.

Funds raised by the com­mit­tee will help send Al­lan Gar­diner to Sydney for the State Ath­let­ics Carnival.

The P&C are also fund­ing the Kinder­garten Ori­en­ta­tion pro­gram.

Their funds will pay for a re­lief teacher, so Kinder­garten teacher Mrs Arnold can run the ori­en­ta­tion pro­gram for prospec­tive 2013 Kinder­garten students.

Over a pe­riod of eight weeks the chil­dren will at­tend school for two hours ev­ery Fri­day.

They will be in­volved in a range of ac­tiv­i­ties or­gan­ised by Mrs Arnold and Year 5 students who will be Kindy bud­dies next year.

The P&C will also fund a pi­lot writ­ing pro­gram de­signed to ex­tend and de­velop the skills of stage 1 and 2 students.

Teach­ers say the school is ‘‘very ap­pre­cia­tive’’ of the com­mit­tee’s ef­forts.

Stu­dent Al­lan Gar­diner and P&C rep­re­sen­ta­tive Si­mone Fox.
