TERM 1 WRAP-UP
Once again it has been an amazing term filled with lots of activities and events that just add to the whole school culture that exists at Gooseberry Hill PS. If we look at the list it is extensive with swimming lessons, parent evenings, leadership incursions, Sculptures by the Sea, Interschool Cricket, Faction and Interschool Swimming, Gina Williams, Just Dance Friday’s, the Year 3 sleepover and of course the Easter Hat Parade, Harmony Day and ANZAC Service to finish off the term.
The school will hold its annual ANZAC Service this Friday at 9am in the courtyard outside the Keene Undercover Area. This is a great opportunity for all students and their families to pay their respects and remember why ANZAC Day is still a very significant part of our culture.
BENDIGO BANK STEM GRANT
As announced at the assembly yesterday, GHPS has been successful in attaining a $5000 grant from Bendigo Bank to go towards STEM resources. Specifically, the grant will assist the school in training and nominating in the regional First LEGO League which is an upper primary program where students build, program and compete with a robot, whilst also learning about modern problem in science and engineering and developing solutions for it.
