Get a table together All ages weclome We had a great day last Friday participating in the annual Aussie Rules/Netball gala day. All of our children in Years 3-6 were involved in one of the sports (7 netball teams, 5 Aussie Rules teams) and this would not have been possible without the dedicated parent helpers who helped on the day – thank you, once again to all of you. It was great to see some girls having a go at AFL and some boys trying their hand at Netball. We must also thank the local Netball Association for continuing to organise the day which provides the opportunity for all children to play team sport in an environment that encourages fun participation and good sportsmanship. Drama Camp Recently several of our students accompanied by Miss Anderson attended a Drama Camp, which was organised by CAP for primary students in our district. It was run by an international Drama Coach. The children participated in activities on teamwork, mime and creating characters, and everyone had a great time and learnt a lot about drama.
