The Aussie of the Month award recognises personal endeavour, achievement and contribution to the community.
The awards also reflect some of the values we share as Australians, a sense of fair play, generosity of spirit, commitment to community participation and a real concern for the environment.
Twice a Term, two students are chosen as the Aussies of the Month and the recipients are presented with the Aussie of the Month badge and certificate at a school assembly.
The certificate and badge is kept by recipients as a memento of the occasion.
Congratulations to Liam and Madeline our Aussies of the Month for October. Well done!

Christmas is just around the corner and we need your support once again to give to others in need.
We have had an amazing response in previous years and hope your generosity will continue. Please send any non-perishable food items (for example, packets and cans) to your child’s classroom. They will be collected weekly with year, room and school totals displayed in the Library for each classroom.
Collections will start this week (Monday 29 October) and will give us a total of 6 weeks to collect as much as we can. Let’s all put in a fantastic effort and support this very worthwhile cause. The food is put into hampers to brighten the Christmas of families in need.
Jan Bowers and Lynda Francis – Co-Ordinators
At our recent meeting the School Council decided to have the Annual Open Meeting on Tuesday 27 November at 3:15pm in the School Library which will also be our final School Council meeting for this year. This meeting provides a great opportunity for you to see how the Council works. We will have an update on the Council’s work throughout the year and you can ask about any pressing issue about your school. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available to keep you energised through the meeting.
As the year draws to the end, several Council Members will be ending their tenure with the Council. Mr Blackwood will again be asking for volunteers to offer to join the Council. This is a good time to think about whether you would like to be part of the Council and help to drive the strategic direction of the school over the next few years.
Just a reminder, after a frantic year staff need to feel the love and support. You can provide feedback that will reach a particularly lovely staff member, by completing an ONYA award.
