Southern Riverina news - - NEWS - Judy Ryan

Jer­ilderie net­ballers and prospec­tive play­ers are in­vited to a pre-sea­son Skills De­vel­op­ment Day with Ovens and Mur­ray play­ing-coach Georgie Bruce at Monash Park this Satur­day.

Ju­nior grades will be from 9am to 10.30am, with Un­der 17s and se­niors from 11am to 1 pm.

There will be a light lunch and drinks to fol­low. Net­ballers are asked to bring their own hats, drink bot­tles and tow­els. Con­tact Mea­gan for more in­for­ma­tion on 0457 859 294.

The heav­ens opened and dumped a trop­i­cal rain storm on the town, putting gut­ters and down­pipes to the test on Satur­day night.

Cars parked in the main street had a free car wash while trees and gar­dens ben­e­fited, look­ing sparkly and fresh af­ter the storm washed away all the dust.

Jer­ilderie Tidy Towns will have its first of­fi­cial meet­ing for the year at Luke Park at 6pm to­mor­row. New mem­bers are al­ways wel­come.

Jer­ilderie Phys­i­cal Cul­ture Club will hold a reg­is­tra­tion and in­for­ma­tion night for all ages, at the Jer­ilderie Gym from 5pm to 6pm next Wed­nes­day, Fe­bru­ary 13.

Schools are back and Jer­ilderie Pub­lic School has wel­comed two new stu­dents, Sarah and Caleb to the Kindy class. Also wel­comed is Miss Ali­son Jeffs who will be tak­ing Years 3 to 6. We hope they all en­joy their in­te­gra­tion into the Jer­ilderie com­mu­nity.

Miss Jo Cameron will be teach­ing Kinder­garten to Year 2, and Ms Nyree Tay­lor will be pro­vid­ing Learn­ing and Sup­port, and Re­lease from Face to Face.

In Septem­ber, the Jer­ilderie Pub­lic School will be cel­e­brat­ing its 150th year.

For­mer stu­dents, teach­ers and fam­i­lies are be­ing in­vited to share their ex­pe­ri­ences at the school, and to at­tend var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties and get-to­geth­ers over the same week­end as the Jer­ilderie Gold Cup race day. In­for­ma­tion may be shared on the ‘Jer­ilderie Pub­lic School 150th’ Face­book page.

The JPS com­mu­nity has sadly farewelled Mrs Hi­lary Knight, who has taken on a part-time po­si­tion at Fin­ley High School. School ad­min­is­tra­tion man­ager Mrs Judy Knight will be in the JPS of­fice on Tues­days from 9.10am to 1pm, and Wed­nes­days, Thurs­days and Fri­days from 9.10am un­til 3.30pm. The of­fice is unat­tended on Mon­days.

JPS is run­ning an In­ten­sive Swimming Pro­gram for all stu­dents at the lo­cal pool ev­ery school day from 2pm to 3pm, with the ex­cep­tion of this Fri­day when the school will be tak­ing part in the Small Schools Swimming Car­ni­val at Yar­ra­wonga, hosted by Mul­wala Pub­lic School.

There was much ac­tiv­ity at St Joseph’s Catholic School over the Christ­mas hol­i­days, with trades­peo­ple com­ing and go­ing. Stu­dents and teach­ers re­turned to re­painted and re­fur­bished class­rooms and fa­cil­i­ties. More St Joseph’s news next week.

If you en­joy a game of golf, but don’t fancy play­ing in the blaz­ing sun in 40 de­gree heat you may be tempted by the op­por­tu­nity to join in some Twi­light Golf.

Start­ing this Fri­day at the Jer­ilderie Sports Club from 6pm, Twi­light Golf is pro­posed to run for the next six weeks if enough play­ers show in­ter­est.

There will be 10 time slots, with teams of four to six play­ers at $5 per player.

For more in­for­ma­tion, or to reg­is­ter, ring Gina on 0419 367 271 or John on 0427 933 004. Food and drink at club prices will be avail­able.
