Ama­roo Ladies Auxiliary has a bas­ket in IGA for dona­tions to­wards the Christ­mas ham­per, which will be drawn at the De­cem­ber 12 lunch.

In the past six months the auxiliary has pur­chased trol­leys for the Curtin Wing, and blood pres­sure ma­chines on stands for the hos­tel. Your dona­tions will go to­wards a very good cause.

Free gen­tle ex­er­cises are held ev­ery Mon­day and Wed­nes­day from 10.15am to 11am at the Madill Cen­tre.

Co-or­di­na­tor is Beth Tre­warne and she would love to see you there. If you have any ques­tions give Beth a ring on 5885 2797.

The Christ­mas Mar­ket Night/Car­ols will be held Fri­day, De­cem­ber 7.

This year the Car­ols will also be held on the same night as the mar­ket night.

There will be stalls, the Red Cross Ex­trav­a­ganza and plenty of en­ter­tain­ment for the chil­dren in­clud­ing a pie eat­ing com­pe­ti­tion. As al­ways the main street will be closed to traf­fic.

The Ex­trav­a­ganza will be open Fri­day 5pm to 9pm and Satur­day 9am to 1pm at the Mo­ma­long Ho­tel.

There will be ta­bles and chairs for the pub­lic (please bring your chair if you can) to en­joy a meal, drink and en­ter­tain­ment.

The BDDA would love to see as many houses lit up this year.

The 24th an­nual Daw­mac/Li­ons Club Com­mu­nity Break­fast will be held on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 22. This is a free event and all that is re­quired is your at­ten­dance.

This Fri­day night there will be a Old Time Dance held at the Cox Hall. All wel­come, please bring a plate.

This week the stu­dents of the learn­ing com­mu­nity schools have par­tic­i­pated in ei­ther Lego WeDo 2.0 or EV3 Mind­storm chal­lenges.

It never ceases to amaze me how the world of ro­bot­ics trans­forms the learn­ing for the stu­dents and how pa­tience, per­se­ver­ance and prob­lem solv­ing come to the fore.

There were some great in­di­vid­ual dis­plays of cre­ativ­ity, orig­i­nal­ity and in­ge­nu­ity and achieve­ments by all stu­dents, big and small.

There were some very com­pet­i­tive sumo wrestling and steep climbs to the top of the moun­tain.

Many thanks must go to Vicki Kemp­ton for the pas­sion and drive she puts into the plan­ning, to the BiJOU LC for de­sign­ing in­no­va­tive learn­ing events and to the stu­dents for the man­ner in which they par­tic­i­pated, well done!

This week BPS wel­comed Christyanne Dart and Rory Thorn­ton from Co­bram Angli­can Gram­mar for a week’s work ex­pe­ri­ence.

They have been as­sist­ing in the class­rooms, join­ing in re­cess and lunchtime ac­tiv­i­ties, help­ing out with ro­bot­ics and work­ing through a stock­take of school re­sources.
