The students at Eureka Public School have had an amazing Term 2 with great results in and out of the classroom.
Students from the school performed in The Rivers production of Disney’s Aladdin Junior at Lismore City Hall a few weeks ago. The production featured over 150 students from schools within The Rivers P-12 Collegiate of schools. It was a musical theatre extravaganza, the likes of which have never been seen before in Lismore. Featuring actors, dancers, choir, circus and band ensembles, it was truly an incredible thing to be involved with. The amazingly talented cast performed to over 2500 people in 6 stunning performances.
Holistic Education at Rosebank
Rosebank PS is in the grip of Sports Mania! As soon as we returned to school from holidays, we all got busy training for the First North Athletics Carnivals. The excellent coaching provided by Jenny from Little Athletics came in handy as our students vied to represent the school. Older athletes braved wet weather to compete in Sprints, Relays, Discus, Shot Put and Ball Games. The whole school later competed in a second event, with even our youngest students enjoying novelty games, Marching and relays. Ahead...the next round in the Small Schools Knockout Competition for Soccer as well as a whole-school Yoga program.
As usual, our school term ended with a flurry of fun and learning. K/1/2 students in the Wadjahbin Class celebrated the end of their study of China with a very special outing to Lismore. Everyone learned how to use chopsticks then put their new learning to good use sharing a Chinese Banquet. A picture is worth a thousand words!
Our Small Schools Soccer Squad joined with other squads from Empire Vale, The Pocket and Broadwater for playoffs in Week Eight. Rosebank made it through the first two rounds and will go on to compete in the next. We were so proud of our squad, who played with great passion and were truly great sports.
Warm curries, wonderful sportsmanship, whirring robots, here’s just a taste of what we’ve been up to...
Each winter we hold a community Curry Night at the school grounds, and this year’s was particularly magical with the fire burning and candles flickering. Families from the school and surrounds turned up with pots of aromatic curry to share and enjoyed the opportunity to catch up outside of school hours (and discuss things other than P&C biz!)
Village Journal #307
We have moved into our winter program at COOSH this term so the children have been making the most of the fading afternoon sun and playing outdoors before returning inside to our wonderfully heated hall for programmed activities. We have been fortunate enough to have the help of Lucas and Rhiannon to promote children’s outdoor physical play, enhancing ball skills, coordination and team cooperation. We are also learning some new indoor sports with recently purchased sets of croquet and bocce and our sock wrestling competitions have proved as popular as ever!
