We are happy that there are three interested candidates and it will be a positive process for the parent group to select the representative. It is pleasing to have a good number of voting papers returned already.The ballot box will be in the front office until until 4:00 pm on Friday 23 March 2018.

Glory Cup Girls

On Thursday 12th April the Glory Cup Girls Soccer (Football) competition is on. The team is selected from Yr 6 (mainly) and Yr 5 students. On the day they will play numerous games in a round robin format.  I will start training with the squad this week and then we will begin the tough task of selecting a team. Next week we might train twice a week and the girls are being encouraged to run as much as they can and kick a ball around to build their skills. Any parent who is able to assist is welcome!

The championship for the boys is scheduled for 3 August 2018.

School Sport Advisory Committee

 Last year we started up a sport advisory committee to ensure that the school was meeting the needs of the community. We have met this year and are looking at introducing another sport where the students can represent the school. There will be a survey out soon to pick which sport we should do. If you have strong feelings about an sport related issue please drop me a line or catch up with Deb Korneder .

Cross Country

The school Cross Country carnival will be held  on Friday July 20, which is Week 1 Term 3. We will start training at school during the last weeks of Term 2.The State Cross Country championship is on Friday August 10. We will do a few weeks of “before-school” training with the squad leading up to the championship. Any parent who wishes to come down and help train the students is more than welcome!

Camp

This year the staff have kindly agreed to run camp again! This fantastic opportunity is booked for Term 3 (15th-17th August).  The Yr 5 students attend camp at Point Peron and combine fun with cooperative activities. We find that the benefits of camp extend into their time as Yr 6’s.

Camp is quite an expense so if you need to look at payment options please let us know early.

Fun Run

P&C are running their famous fun run again this year. The date is Friday June 1 !

Ex Students

We have recently been advised by Leeming Senior High School that four former Leeming Primary School students achieved an ATAR of 80.00 or higher in 2017. One of these students was also awarded Dux of 2017. Congratulations to these students an a great achievement.

Thank you to Leeming Primary School staff who helped to build the strong foundations during primary school that allowed them to flourish so well at high school.

Thanking You
