OUR SCHOOL NEWS

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.

Visit to St Judes

The Junior School Council accompanied the choir to St. Jude’s Aged Care Facility on the 17th November. We enjoyed introducing each of the musical items and participated in singing as well. Thanks to the students from Prep-Grade 6 who made lovely handmade Christmas Cards, were able to hand them out to the residents and have a chat with them as well. Thank you to Mrs Taylor who allowed us to join in on her excursion and helped us with our speaking parts! We had a great time!

A visit from a former student

In Term 4, gymnast, Luke Wadsworth, a former Narre Warren North Primary School student, came to our school to talk to the grade 3-6’s about his experience. He competed in the Glasgow Commonwealth Games and showed us his routines from the games. He talked to us about how he started training 6 days a week from the age of 9. He trained at and continues to train at HPC (The High Performance Centre).  He said that the dream is the Rio Olympics in 2016 and the Commonwealth Games in 2018. It was an interesting and it showed us that you can achieve your dreams and you don’t have to go to a fancy school to make it happen.
