I hope everyone had a wonderful term 1 Easter break!
Regional Worlds Longest Lunch – Daylesford
Term 1 culminated on the Friday with the Daylesford longest lunch held at the beautiful "Oak and Monkey Puzzle". What a brilliant day for 150 guests. I would like to personally thank both Natasha Morgan and Kylie Himmerman and the stellar line up of chefs and producers throughout the region who hosted such a magnificent event. I would also like to thank all the volunteers from the school who ably assisted in numerous ways. This was a fabulous fundraiser, with profits allocated to support the Kitchen Garden. Well done to all and at the time of writing, an exact amount hasn’t been confirmed but it is believed to be around $15000.00! A huge thank you to both Natasha and Kylie for their sensational efforts, it is very much appreciated and will benefit the children immensely.
Cross Country Championships
Well done to all the children who competed in the Cross Country championships at the beautiful Jubilee Lake on the final Friday of Term 1. Congratulations to the winning team Sutton, and likewise to all children who improved their own times or tried their very best. Well done to those children who have made it to the next level.
ANZAC Day Commemoration
A huge thank you to all children, parents and community members who attended the Daylesford Primary School ANZAC day commemoration on Tuesday 18th April. We had little choice but to host this important event due to numerous clashes next week, the official ANZAC week.
Unfortunately once again, some school children have been targeted by the dreaded head lice. I encourage all parents to check and treat appropriately, consider tying hair back and being vigilant when head lice or the eggs are evident. It is wonderful to hear that parents are on to it ASAP and treatment is timely and appropriate. Further information is available from the school.
Our house athletics carnival is happening this Monday 24th April, involving children from Years 3-6. We are leaving from the school by bus at 9am and heading to Llanberris athletic venue in Ballarat for what should be a wonderful opportunity for the students to demonstrate their athletic prowess. I trust everyone will have returned their signed permission form and all students will be wearing appropriate clothing (house colours or school uniform). All children will be back at school prior to 3.20 for normal pickup or bus connections. We look forward to this wonderful action packed day.
I would like to thank all those parents who have paid for the upcoming camps and no doubt, we have some very excited children. We have our Year 3/4 children going to Cave Hill Creek, Mt Cole and likewise our Year 5/6 children venturing to Halls Gap. Campers are leaving on Wednesday the 26th and returning on Friday the 28th. We look forward to hearing some engaging camp stories and trust all children will have a wonderful time. If any parent has financial concerns please contact me at the school.
Enjoy your weekend
