ANZAC DAY 2014
Friday 25th April is ANZAC Day and is therefore a Public holiday. The school will reopen on Monday 28 April at 8:30 am.
On Wednesday 23 April the Senior classes and teachers attended the ANZAC Day Schools Commemoration Ceremony in ANZAC Square. The Governor, Penny Wensley, spoke to over 3000 students from 140 schools who gathered for the ceremony. It was a moving ceremony and our students participated well in the ceremony.
ANZAC Day Sunnybank RSL March
Our students and their families are invited to attend and participate in the Sunnybank RSL March. It begins with participants gathering at 7:45 am at the corner of Station Road and Turton Street. The March begins at 8:00 am sharp and moves towards the Gager Street RSL Memorial. At this point parents collect their children. Following the march there is an RSL Commemoration Ceremony at the Memorial.
Next Monday, 28 April at 2:00 pm our school will hold our own school Assembly for ANZAC Day in the Penola Centre. A member of the local RSL will be present for this Assembly and will speak briefly to the students on the subject of ANZAC Day.
EARLY YEARS CROSS COUNTRY
The Early Years Cross Country (Prep and Year 1) was run on Thursday morning. It was a great success due to the wonderful organisation of our Prep and Year 1 teachers. I was very impressed by the enthusiasm of the children and their determination to finish the race. A few took a tumble but picked themselves up and finished the race. They certainly showed the spirit of our little mantra…“SUNNYBANK KIDS ARE STRONG KIDS- SUNNYBANK KIDS NEVER GIVE UP”
Thank you to the many parents and grandparents who were able to attend the event. It certainly created a supportive atmosphere for our young runners.
For those of you who missed out because of work commitments I hope the photos included in this week's newsletter give you a taste of the action.
YEAR 5 AND SENIORS - SKIP TO SAVE LIVES The teachers and students in Year 5 and Seniors will be holding a Skip-a-Thon on Friday 2nd May (Week 2, Term 2). The students will participate in single, paired and group skipping activities which will take place for approximately one hour. Students will be seeking sponsors to contribute to raising funds for Project Compassion either by a set donation or a donation for every five minutes of skipping. Students will be seeking sponsors early next term. The children have been practising their skipping skills to be ready for the Skip-a-Thon in Term 2. Thank you for donating much needed funds for Caritas Australia.
