SEMESTER 1 ATTENDANCE AWARDS
Congratulations to the 272 students who received excellent attendance (2 days maximum) or outstanding attendance (0 days absent) in semester 1 at Monday’s assembly.
- Senior band students Alisa, Brodie-Lee, Ella and Talulah who have been selected to take part in the annual Creative Arts Camp at Lennox Head this week - a great opportunity to showcase their talents and work with other talented musicians from our area. Look out for a photo in next week’s newsletter.
- Girl’s and boy’s touch football teams for their great efforts at the gala day yesterday – the boys won the first round but lost their second to Kingscliff in a close nail-biting 5-4 result. The girls lost their first round but went on to win their 2 consolation games in fine style. Mr Wilkinson and Mrs McArthur send a huge thank you to the parents who supported our teams yesterday.
- The AFL team who travelled to Coffs Harbour last week to play Toormina PS winning 11-6-73 to 5-6-36 to become North Coast champions. This was a great achievement after a four hour bus trip. They will now play a home game against Bateau Bay PS in the state quarter finals with the winning team travelling to Sydney for the state finals on Monday week 7.
