THE school bulletin informs parents and friends that the new kitchen cabinets have been installed and when the repainting of some of the walls is done the renovations will be just about completed.
Parents are advised that they need to be aware of the parking restrictions in Dickenson Street outside the school and to ensure that the students cross the road safely when arriving and leaving the school.
A new report format will be used at the end of the term to show the progress of each student. Though different it will contain the same type of information as the previously used forms. Parents will be able to indicate if they wish to have an interview with the child’s teacher.
Students who will be going to the Murrumburrah High School next year will be attending one session a week at the high school next term where they will be able to participate in a variety of activities, I guess to give them an idea of what the coming year will be like. Further information will be available later this term.
Congratulations to Dakota Hodson who has been selected to run in the regional cross country event.
Bendigo Bank School banking will start on Wednesday, June 6. The next assembly will be at 2pm on June 8.
Nicole Ward will take up the position of learning and resource teacher for one day a week since the change in the way the schools are funded. Mrs Middleton and Mrs Winterflood will continue and there will be some extra aide time as well.
The school, and others, congratulate the Regan family on the arrival of new baby Archie and the Winterflood family on the arrival of baby Digby.
Cheers to Margaret Robinson, who is at present a patient in the Canberra Hospital.
Margaret had a fall in her room at Linton last week, unfortunately breaking her hip. Admission to hospital and an operation to pin her hip followed and last I heard she was sitting up in bed having a little to eat.
Margaret is an amazing lady and has suffered a lot of ill health over the years but here she is in her early nineties sitting up so soon after her hip op. Her friends and family hope she progresses well.
Saturday’s weather again proved to be the enemy of the golf club - so bleak and unpleasant that no players were enticed from their firesides but Sunday proved to be a perfect golfing experience (at least the weather was, not so sure about the scores).
The fairways are in pretty good nick but of course the rain washes the sand off the greens adding a great deal of difficulty to the approach shot.
Lindsay McDonald donated the trophy for the ladies and Ethel Lee was unchallenged to take home some beautiful glass vases made by Peter Minson while Trevor Nuthall was surprised to win the men’s event and take home some port pipes, also made by Peter. Thank you to both.
Next weekend is planned to be a little different with bowls Saturday afternoon and novelty golf on Sunday.
There will be small trophies for lots of different novelty events so maybe players should go and practice their putts and straight drives etc.
Perhaps there could be a trophy for the players who ended up under the most trees. It will be an interesting and enjoyable nine holes if the weather is kind. Play will begin at 2pm.
Travis Pigram competed in the state junior singles championship at Wagga on Sunday.
I wonder when the meaning of the word ‘Ã¯ntercept’ changed?
Until next time - Aileen Glover
