Yesterday, we held our Cross Country event at the Batlow Golf Course and the Batlow Showground in picture perfect conditions. The students walked the course first and then ran in their events competing in their age groups. It was great to be out of the school on a large field. The students had a wonderful time playing in between events. Students who have been successful in their race are now invited to go onto the next level of competition, the Western Region Carnival Cross Country in Harden, Friday 3 May. Students will be bringing those notes home today and all notes need to be returned to school by this Thursday.
Thank you to the responses for our new canteen options from Term 2. Parent responses were strongly in support of lunch orders being ordered from outside the school. So, we will be sourcing lunch orders from the Batlow Bakery on Mondays and Fridays only starting from Friday 3 May. Please see the menu from Batlow Bakery in this newsletter. Winter Warmers will begin again next term on Wednesdays which is a fund raiser for our school, driven by Community Council. A winter warmer menu will be sent out by the end of this week. Therefore, no lunches will be available on Tuesdays or Thursdays.
Class excursions for this year are nearly finalized and notes will be emailed to parents tomorrow. In short details are: K/1 Boggy Creek 15th May, 2/3/4 Expression of interest for an overnight stay at Borambola 11th & 12th November and 5/6 Beechworth overnight excursion September 24th & 25th.
As this is the final week of term before Palm Sunday, and then Easter, we will be having a liturgy this Thursday and then a special lunch. Please know that parents and friends are most welcome to join with us.
Teachers will be participating in professional development in Cootamundra on Monday 29 April titled Challenging Learning. This will be led by Martin Renton from the UK.
Therefore, we will see students start Term 2 on Tuesday 30 April. I would like to wish everyone a wonderful, safe and restful holiday with family and friends.
On Thursday the children at St Mary's will symbolically share a meal together as Jesus did at the Last Supper. Our celebration will begin at 12.30pm with a procession of palms. Then as a whole school we will have a meal together.
There is no charge for lunch and all dietary requirements will be met.
Parents/Carers are most welcome to join us.
