Welcome back everyone to our final term for the year. I trust everyone has had an enjoyable break as we enter into a very busy and engaging term.
TRIVIA NIGHT SATURDAY 13TH OCTOBER AT 7PM
We very much look forward to our school trivia night to be hosted at Victoria Park from 7pm this Saturday night. A huge thank you to Andrea and her team who have committed so much time and energy into ensuring that the night is a success. I look forward to reporting as to who wins and also as to how much money was raised. Thank you to all who have committed to attending this fun night.
PICK MY PROJECT – ROBOTICS
Unfortunately, we were unsuccessful in gaining this grant (in our case $42000). We required approximately 200 votes but didn't achieve our goal. We will once again ensure we have an attempt next year. A huge congratulations to Trentham community for their well-earned success in receiving funding for a very worthy cause. This was the only project that was successful in the Hepburn Shire so we will be very proactive next year in promoting our project!
WORLD TEACHERS DAY TUESDAY 9TH OCTOBER
I would like to acknowledge our teaching staff at Daylesford, Drummond and Yandoit Primary Schools for all their efforts in ensuring that your children have the opportunity to develop as young people! Thank you to all!
PUPIL FREE DAY 5TH NOVEMBER & MELBOURNE CUP PUBLIC HOLIDAY 6TH NOVEMBER
Just a reminder that the schools pupil free day is on Monday the 5th of November. This coincides with the Melbourne Cup public holiday on Tuesday the 6th of November. This has been organised so that the disruption is as minimal as possible and allows families to enjoy a potential long weekend.
DAYLESFORD ROTARY STUDENT CONFERENCE 9-12.30 FRIDAY 9th NOVEMBER
Our 26 designated student leaders at Daylesford Primary school, along with the Daylesford rotary club, will be hosting other school leaders on the above date. The focus is on developing our student leadership skills and we are very excited about the opportunity that this event presents. Thank you to Bronwyn, Peta and Colin from Daylesford Rotary who have been outstanding in contributing to the development of our student leadership team.
COMMUNITY DANCE 13TH NOVEMBER
Please book this in your calendar as we are hosting a fabulous event on our school oval showcasing the performing arts of Daylesford, Drummond & Yandoit primary schools. Further information will follow! Thank you to the eight musicians and parents who have been involved in a practice session in preparation for the night. This was held at the school on a Sunday during the term break with Katie Yeung, one of our music teachers, organising this opportunity. Thank you everyone, it should be a fabulous occasion!
WALK TO SCHOOL MONTH
October is Walk to School month in Victoria. As it is very difficult to do so in many of our student’s circumstances and home locations, we have opted to participate in safe walking tracks such as around the oval, school playground, art room as an option. There may be a time in October when classes walk around Lake Daylesford. These opportunities will not only be undertaken in a safe, organised manner but will also promote the theme of being active and participating in physical exercise.
GREATER WESTERN REGION ATHLETICS CARNIVAL
As many people are aware we have some very talented athletes who are now at the next stage of the Regions athletics program. Congratulations to Charlotte Streat, Zach Koleski, Jessica Santurini, Gemma Malone, Erin Childs, Banjo Kinnear, Lincoln Barby, Mia Hardy, Evie Douglas & Alice Glen who are competing today at Llanberris reserve, Ballarat. We look forward to informing everyone in next week’s newsletter as to their progress!
I hope everyone has an enjoyable weekend.
