Bairnsdale Campus newsletter: Nov 8, 2019

Nov 8, 2019 | Bairnsdale News

We were reminded at this morning’s SRC Christmas Fellowship that we have much to be grateful for and, as a result, we have many reasons to be generous. Our Christmas appeal asks that we reflect on what we have, what we treasure and what we would be willing to share with others less fortunate than ourselves. Our SRC team have asked each student to bring in a gift that they would really like to receive themselves and to donate it to the Christmas appeal. Ideally the gift should come from your child by giving of their time or own money to purchase the present.
We will place these gifts under our tree and they will be then distributed to the children of our local community. Let’s work together to crowd our tree with gifts for others.

This week’s Twilight School was another reminder of the wonderful opportunities our students have and also the great interest our parents take in their child’s education. I am grateful for the support of our students for participating with enthusiasm, of our teachers for their commitment and to our parent body for sharing in your child’s learning.

Public speaking is not an easy task however our competing students in Thursday’s house competition certainly demonstrated confidence and a willingness to have a go! We as a staff were very proud of their efforts and commend them for taking the time to practise delivering their poem or story. As judges Principal Baker and Mrs Cartledge said it was difficult to choose a winner as all students deserved to win. However, after careful consideration and after positive feedback to all participants, our winning students were as follows:
Foundation: Hannah Evans
Year 1: Blake Maxwell
Year 2: Piper Jankowiak
Year 3: Lacey Scott
Year 4: Raf Rodriguez
Year 5: Hudson Ray-Daminato and Emily Allouet
Year 6: Jack Campbell

Next Monday we look forward to our final Soirée for 2019 but, until then, enjoy your weekend.

Kind regards,
Virginia Evans
Head of Bairnsdale Campus
