Senior Boys Basketball
How awesome are the boys from the Senior Boys Basketball Team? On Monday they travelled with Mrs Bray and very supportive parents to compete in the state finals. After three victorious games, they played off in the Grand Final. With only seven points the difference, the boys celebrated as Runners Up. Huge effort guys! Well done and the Hillsmeade school community is so very proud of you all.
Human Powered Vehicles
Today the HPV team head off to Maryborough to compete in the RACV Energy Breakthrough 2015. Mr Kay, Ms Barker and our pre-service teacher Ms Aoun has spent many hours with the children and parents getting ready for this exciting and rewarding challenge. We thank all sponsors and parents who have contributed money, time and energy to ensure these two red, white and blue beauties are ready for the event. Good luck to all the team members and we wish you every success.
National Recycling Week
Sahar from Grade 1 recently attended a City of Casey’s award ceremony where she received multiple copies of Casey’s National Recycling Week 2016 calendar as part of a competition she entered. Here is Sahar proudly displaying her winning entry which is the picture for December 2016. Ms Robinson (relief teacher for a short time) was delighted to support Sahar by entering her beautiful drawing into the competition.
School Council Update
It has been a busy time for our School Council members over the past few weeks. Last Tuesday night a number of members attended a Governance training session hosted by our school and facilitated by the department. On Monday night, we ratified 16 policies including Mandatory Reporting, Duty of Care, Head Lice Management, Enrolment and Attendance. With over 90 compliance policies, we will be developing a three year cycle of ratification to ensure we continue to remain up to date with our DET policies. We also approved our second VCOP PD day (pupil free day) on Monday 15th February, 2016. The school’s new website has finally been enabled with further updates to come. You’re looking at it right now!
