Errappa Camp

In the last week of last term I had the pleasure of accompanying our Year 8 & 9 students to the Errappa Camp at Iron Knob. Having been in a number of schools that have accessed the camp it was a great opportunity for me not only to get to spend some time with the students but to also get a better understanding of the activities undertaken by the students. 

The Errappa Camp is run by police officers and concentrates on developing self confidence and team work with the students. I was not only amazed to note the activities undertaken by the students but probably more so by the level that students challenged themselves. Well done to all involved!

Japanese Exchange

Thank you to the families who have expressed interest in hosting a Japanese student. Their time of arrival is only a couple of weeks away. We are seeking more families to assist, so please contact the school if you can help out.  You may also want to use the Japanese language posters on the next three pages to get ready for the visit!

Staffing Update

This term we welcome back Star Derrington who will be working predominantly in our Flex Room supporting a range of students for the remainder of the year.
