“The Smith Family have kindly donated two smaller bikes for our Infants students to ride at school,” Relieving Assistant Principal Mrs Kath Henry said.

“The school already has a set of bikes donated from this fantastic organisation and the students ride these regularly at lunch and recess playtime.”

Coordinator Mrs Suzanne Leonard visited the school last Friday to deliver the new bikes.

Captains Shaqueil and Sophie met with Mrs Leonard and took the opportunity to thank The Smith Family for their donation.

Mrs Henry said although the school’s Clean Up Australia Day was postponed earlier this month due to horrid weather conditions, it didn’t dampen spirits last week.

Armed with garbage bags and gloves on their hands, excited students from K/1, accompanied by teacher Miss Laura Blatch, took part in the annual campaign.

As the students filled their bags, they learnt the importance of keeping the environment clean.

A thank you afternoon tea for the ‘Star Leaders’ was also held last week.

“The ‘Star Leaders’ are senior students who actively organise activities in the playground,” Mrs Henry said.

“They support all students when playing and wear bright vests and hats so they are easily recognised.”

Students and staff are set for another busy week ahead, with the annual school athletics carnival scheduled for Wednesday 29 March.

Mrs Henry said the students are keen and enthusiastic for the carnival, which will be held at Myall Park in Hawks Nest.
