The National Year of Reading is about everyone enjoying reading, and for keen readers to
find new sources of inspiration. It's about supporting reading initiatives while respecting the
oral tradition of storytelling. It's about helping people discover and rediscover the magic of
books and stories anywhere, anytime. Most of all, it's about Australians becoming a nation of
readers. The Department of Education and Communities is a National Year of Reading
partner and will be part of activities throughout the year. Our staff and teachers provide a
wide range of high interest reading programs and initiatives to our diverse student
community and will be promoting many activities and resources to support the National
Year of Reading.

whole Saturday building the Sleeper retaining wall near the Paved Path. Also special thanks to Paul
McKenzie for his expertise and tools. It looks great although it is not quite finished as we ran out of time
and sleepers, but will be after the Easter Holidays.

was finally played last Monday.
Some very excited boys and two cool and calm girls
took to the field under some very windy conditions. The
wind wreaked havoc with some of our bowlers
although Emerson managed 2 for 6 off four overs.
Chelsea came on later in the game taking two quick
wickets. Angus kept beautifully, diving for the ball and
taking two catches and a run out. Will was quick in the
field running out one of the opposition and taking a
wicket off his bowling.
Austin put on a spectacular display coming in as
number three batsman. His total of 22 runs included 4
Canowindra were victors on the day passing Grenfell’s total of 61 runs.
The second round was held in Canowindra against a strong Cowra Public side. Their total of 131 runs
was always going to be a big ask but Canowindra tried hard with their batting and in the field.
A huge thank you to Mr Pengilly and Mr Traves who gave up a lot of their time to coach and umpire the
