Busy school sched­ule

Southern Riverina news - - FOCUS ON EDUCATION - This year has al­ready shaped up to be yet another busy year at Tocumwal Public School.

Tocumwal Public pro­vides all stu­dents with the op­por­tu­nity to par­tic­i­pate in ex­tra cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing sport­ing, mu­si­cal and science-based pro­grams.

Se­nior stu­dents cur­rently have the op­por­tu­nity to par­tic­i­pate in online com­pe­ti­tions against stu­dents from across Aus­trala­sia.

These com­pe­ti­tions cover re­search skills, science (in­clud­ing lunchtime ex­per­i­ments) and cur­rent af­fairs.

Stu­dents also have the op­por­tu­nity to be in­volved in public speak­ing com­pe­ti­tions, Premier’s Read­ing and Spell­ing chal­lenges and Univer­sity of NSW assess­ments.

On the sport­ing front, TPS com­petes in many knock-out com­pe­ti­tions like cricket, net­ball, AFL, soc­cer and soft­ball.

Both the male and fe­male soft­ball teams regularly make it to the fi­nals of the Rive­rina re­gion, and we have al­ready had a num­ber stu­dents at­tend NSW PSSA State Car­ni­vals so far this year.

Tocumwal Public School aims to pro­vide stu­dents with as many op­por­tu­ni­ties as pos­si­ble to en­rich and mo­ti­vate their learn­ing.

Teach­ers gladly use their own time to pro­vide these ac­tiv­i­ties and are re­warded by the de­light stu­dents show in the learn­ing process.

Tocumwal Public stu­dents and staff take pride in their school, and this is shown in the friendly and wel­com­ing at­mos­phere.

Each year our classes take part in ex­cur­sions, which this year have in­cluded a trip to Al­bury for a live show as well as vis­its to Sov­er­eign Hill in Bal­larat and Can­berra to ex­pand on stud­ies back at school.

This week we are cel­e­brat­ing Ed­u­ca­tion Week with many ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing a book fair, a lead­er­ship lun­cheon, a visit from a pro­fes­sional and school per­for­mance.

A spe­cial Ed­u­ca­tion Week assem­bly will be held to­mor­row af­ter­noon, show­cas­ing some of our amaz­ing tal­ent and also in­clud­ing the pre­sen­ta­tion of some spe­cial awards.

We welcome all new and prospec­tive fam­i­lies to con­tact us to hear more about our won­der­ful school and what it can of­fer you and your chil­dren.

For all en­quiries, please con­tact prin­ci­pal Dar­ren White on 5874 2128.
