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!!
Below is a link to a fantastic article. Please read it and discuss with your children……

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.

On Monday morning 20th May we went to the hall for gymnastics and a man from
Pambula helped us set up the equipment for gymnastics. we had the balance beam, a circuit and the beat box. On the balance beam we had to walk along and jump off onto the big mat. On the bars we had to do a flip.We had three coaches help us as well.
When we finished we walked back to school.
Tomorrow it is the ‘Cross Country’.Our teams are Gabo and Bastion. If we want to we can dress up. It is a big race and the whole school is in it. Our class has been training.

We used the geo- boards and made shapes and we made our names.
Grade three students have completed the NAPLAN. Grade two students learnt about the octopus garden with Mrs Broome.
We looked out our citrus trees and have decided they need some care.
We finished off our assignments on Australia and Victoria. They make a great display.
