Staff Outing

On Sunday, 9th June, 12 staff members and their partners  took part in our staff excursion to see the Great Gatsby at the Pictureshowman in Merimbula. Staff dressed for the occasion in 1920’s gear, and the movie was followed by dinner at Wheelers Restaurant. It was a most enjoyable excursion; great fun with great company!!

Mallacoota P-12 College held their annual Cross Country on the 21st of May. Much was at stake with the legendary Gabo VS Bastion house championship. The weather held off and we were treated to real cross county conditions. 15 degrees, bit of water, and a slippery track.

The first of the ranks was the U7’s/U8’s and they were off like a shot. Next year we may trial pace runners :). After that it was the preps, who were very nervous but extremely brave!. They were fantastically supported by some of our secondary students (apparently onesies are back in) . Next was the very experienced 9’s and 10’s, followed by the 11’s and 12’s. The secondary senior students were off next to run 3kms (females) and 5kms (males) who all did a fantastic job managing the distance. Some students also walked, which gained their houses valuable points. The last group was the rest of the secondaries, the largest group of the day. There was a lot of negotiating for spots at the line. But once they were gone attention turned to the finishing line.

All of the students made it to the line. Spirits were high. They were cheered on by family, friends, teachers. Great work to all. See below for the results.

A huge thank you to all the students. We had runners, walkers, time keepers, and directors. It is great to see such school spirit. Without student assistance events like this would be difficult if not impossible.  Thank you to all the teachers who encouraged and assisted on the day. Particularly Kathy who helped arrange the day and Narelle who completed all the scoring. Thank you to the parents and community members for their support. Its great to have extra help, and the students love the atmosphere of the crowd.
