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.

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.
