Students use the break to finish their speeches
Students in Years 3 to 6 at both schools will spend some of the holidays preparing for the Lions Club Junior Public Speaking competition.
The preliminary judging will be held in Term 3 on Wednesday, July 25, with final judging to be held at the July 30 Lions Club meeting.
The subject for Year 3/4 is ‘My Favourite Place’. Year 5/6 speakers have to pretend that they are a travel guide and need to look carefully around their town and find attractions which they can then ‘sell’ to prospective visitors to the town.
After a relatively short time in hospital after a fall, Leslie Earsman has returned home a bit bruised, but not beaten.
Leslie has been supported throughout her treatment and recovery by family, friends, and of course the wonderful doctors and nursing staff — both in Albury and Jerilde- rie — for which she is extremely grateful.
We wish her a speedy and uneventful recovery.
The monthly combined church service shared between the Anglican and Uniting churches will be held at St Stephen’s Anglican Church this Sunday at 10am.
These services are held on the third Sunday of each month and alternate between St Stephen’s and St Andrew’s churches, to build unity within the churches and the community.
They are always followed by a delicious morning tea, and the chance for a chat. Everyone is invited.
For more information contact Reverend Stephen Davis on 0429 845 525.
The second term at both primary schools ended on a high note after a very busy term. Students from both Jerilderie Public School and St Joseph’s Catholic School came together at St Joseph’s Church on Friday for an end of term ecumenical service.
At St Joseph’s School students took part in a Reflection Day with their teachers on Tuesday, July 3.
The children were allowed to wear casual clothes to school, and were encouraged to donate a gold coin towards Catholic Missions.
The whole school enjoyed a special shared lunch, with a little help from parents.
The Jerilderie Public School community marked the end of term two with a farewell for school administration officer Rebecca Ware, who has been at the school for 18 months.
Rebecca will be working extra hours at Berrigan Public School from Term 3.
Coming up in term three is the Small Schools Athletics Carnival to be held at Savernake Public School on Friday, August 3.
On July 24, Jerilderie Public School students and staff will travel by bus to Wagga to see a performance of the ‘78 Storey Treehouse’ at the Wagga civic theatre.
Year 6 students from St Joseph’s School will also be attending a Forensic Day at Finley High School next term, giving them another opportunity to look around the school they may attend next year.
Students and teachers at St Joseph’s were sad to say farewell to visiting American student Vivienne Nichols, who returned to California with her mother and brother on Sunday.
Vivienne has had a wonderful time settling into life in a much smaller school than the one she attends in the States, and will miss the friends she has made.
The St Joseph’s kids will miss Vivienne and her accent, and no doubt Barbara and John will miss their daughter and grandchildren.
The Jerilderie Hospital Auxiliary will hold its AGM on Thursday, July 26, at 2pm in the Community Centre.
