What’s happening at South Grafton PS?

Congratulations to our wonderful P&C and Craft Group for providing such a wonderful variety of lovely Mother’s Day gifts for our students to purchase last week.

 Our students were very excited when purchasing something special. Our P&C raised over $5000 from these stalls and the raffles. A big thank you to our wonderful volunteers who gave up their time to sell these gifts to our students. We hope all of our mums and nans had a wonderful Mother’s Day.

Good luck to our Year 3 and Year 5 students who will be completing this year’s NAPLAN which begins next week and runs for 2 weeks. Our thanks to Mr. Zacek for organizing all these formal assessments.

Congratulations to Bridgette Tough who recently was selected in the North Coast girls football (soccer) team to play in the state carnival in Coffs Harbour later in the year.

Last Thursday our Year 6 students participated in a Sport Orientation Transition Day at South Grafton High School. Our students enjoyed all the activities and they are looking forward to a number of transition days that will be held this year. Thank you to South Grafton High school for providing this opportunity for our students.

This week our school prefects will be participating in the annual GRIP Leadership Training Day at Coffs Harbour. This was another fantastic opportunity for our leaders to continue to develop their leadership skills. Our thanks to Mrs. McIntyre for organizing this activity.

5/6ER students are excited and ready for this year’s NSW DEC Game Changer Challenge. This year 5/6ER teams have the opportunity to select whether they will create or advocate. Our Creators will be making a solution for the problem ‘How might we transform discarded items into something useful, beautiful, or upcycled?’. While our Advocate teams will be getting people on board to support and promote ‘How might we rethink the use of single-use plastics in our community?’

5/6ER are excited and challenged by this NSW DEC initiative.
