Year 10 PASS Snow Trip
Year 10 PASS have been very excited to experience the highly anticipated snow camp, and we were finally able to begin this excursion on the 31st of July. After six long hours travelling by bus, we arrived to snowfall and extremely cold temperatures at Thredbo. We began each day by completing 2 hour lessons to gain and expand our knowledge of our chosen sport, skiing or snowboarding. However, a few of us have never seen snow, let alone attempted skiing/snowboarding, so learning these skills proved to be a challenge! With the help of the friendly instructors, we learnt all the skills necessary to ski/snowboard, which we were then allowed to practice these skills for the remainder of the day.
Although the trip entailed many occasions of falling over, accidentally dropping equipment from the chairlift, and the daily difficulty of waking up early, it is fair to say that these struggles were completely worth it, as it was such an enjoyable and fun experience!
Thank you to Miss Brennan and Miss Soles for their patience and responsibility of 25 students for the 3 days of camp.

Woolworths Earn & Learn 2017
This year we will be participating in the Woolworths Earn & Learn program. Through this program we will be able to get new educational resources for our school/early learning centre – and all we need you to do is shop for your groceries at Woolworths.
From Wednesday 26 July to Tuesday 19 September or while stock lasts, we are collecting Woolworths Earn & Learn Stickers. You will get one Woolworths Earn & Learn Sticker for every $10 spent (excluding liquor, tobacco and gift cards). Place the Woolworths Earn & Learn Sticker onto a Woolworths Earn & Learn Sticker Sheet and when it’s complete, the Sticker Sheet can be dropped into the Collection Box here at the school or at your local Woolworths.
At the end of the promotion, we’ll be able to get some great new equipment. The range is extensive and offers lots of items ideal for our students – including resources for Maths, English, Science and some fantastic fun supplies for Arts & Craft, Sport and for our library.
