 DIVISIONAL CROSS COUNTRY

On Monday 25th May, 9 students from our school participated in the Divisional Cross Country Carnival held in Pakenham. It’s a huge achievement for students who qualify to run at this level, as essentially they have placed in the top 10 in their age group out of hundreds of students in this local area. I think for students who competed on the day, they should feel incredibly proud of themselves as it’s a huge achievement just to get to that level! Congratulations to the following students: Jessica B, Dominic M, Dakota K, Nadia A, Lachlan O, Wyatt K, Rachel C and Kelsey T. A special mention to our local running sensation Amber C – who finished a stylish second and will now compete at the Regional Cross Country Carnival on 15th June. Best of luck Amber!

EDUCATION WEEK AT NARRE WARREN NORTH PRIMARY SCHOOL

Education Week (week beginning 18th May 2015) was celebrated at Narre Warren North Primary School with a focus on Reading and Sustainability.

Our students participated in fun and interesting activities that engaged them in the joy of reading. Students investigated how to look after our world through ‘hands on’ tasks.  They used books such as ‘The Lorax’ to assist with their understanding of sustainability.  Students also participated in a Book Character Parade to bring their favourite books to life.

The day turned out to be better than expected! Favourite book characters were brought to life by enthusiastic people and creative costumes. During the parade there was dancing, laughter and happiness, a true reflection of our school community. Parents, students and staff are to be congratulated on the effort that was put into making this day so fun and special. Let’s continue to celebrate reading. After all, “The more you read, the more things you know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go” – Dr Seuss.

ANZAC Day Ceremony:

Having the opportunity to say a part in a speech for one of the most important days of the year has been an honour. I really liked having this task along with the other school captains, we had a good time  researching and writing the special ANZAC day speech. We presented  it on ANZAC day at the Memorial in Memorial Drive. There were at least 500 people there and I was very nervous.  When I got up on the platform and stood in front of the lectern, my knees were shaking. Luckily in the end it was a great day and huge success, I really appreciate all those who made the day possible, Thank You!

Divisional Swimming:

On Wednesday 11th March 16 students from Grade 3 to 6 competed at the Divisional Swimming Carnival at Noble Park. One of our students, who was so dedicated to swimming with his relay team, that he went to the pool and competed and then had to quickly drive off to the hospital for a planned procedure! All students can feel very proud of their efforts in all their events: Kelsey T (Butterfly and Backstroke), James C (Breaststroke), Brody T (Backstroke), Mercedes C (Backstroke), Jayden B (Breaststroke),  9/10 years  Boys (Brody T, Jayden B, James C and Nathan M) and Girls (Chloe T, Dakota K, Jessica O, Annabelle S) relay and the 11 years Girls (Emma Z, Kelsey T, Mercedes C and Rachel C) and Boys (Wyatt K, Sharna-Lee D, Dominic M and Brodie H) relay teams. At this level students need to finish in first place to qualify to go through to the next level and I would like to wish Kelsey T the best of luck in her Butterfly event at the Regional Swimming Carnival held on 26th March.  A special mention to the 11 years girls relay and Kelsey T (Backstroke) for finishing second!! So close girls!! There is always next year!!

Narre Warren North’s 5 Golden Rules

Last year, the students were involved in helping to develop new school rules for Narre Warren North. Each class was asked to nominate rules they thought were important to our school. These rules were collected and collated by the Student Wellbeing team, who were able to create 5 rules based on the student’s ideas. They were also asked to vote for the name of the rules, with the most popular name being Narre Warren North’s Golden Rules.
