Boneo Buzz: 4th November

 Dear Parents and Carers,

People crave that sense of belonging even more so now, there is something indescribably lovely about being a part of a group of people who share something more substantial than geographical location; something they feel passionately about. Something that, when shared, makes individuals feel connected. Yesterday’s annual Boneo Oaks Day with over 120 members of our community attending’ truly epitomised just how special our community is. A growing body of research confirms the benefits of building a sense of community. Young people with a strong sense of community are more likely to have strong academic outcomes, act ethically and altruistically, develop socially and emotionally and generally avoid problem behaviours, including drug use and violence. A heart felt thank you to everyone involved in making this event so successful. I would like to particularly thank Amanda Swayn who passionately organises this amazing event. You once again worked tirelessly over many weekends to bring this to fruition.

Congratulations Harry S on qualifying for the Victorian Schools State Athletics Championships. Harry competed in the 80m Hurdles this week finishing 3rd in the Sate. This is an amazing achievement and we are all very proud of your efforts Harry.

Oaks Day Fundraising Event

Wow! An amazing effort by our school and extended community in their support of our Oaks Day event yesterday.

The National was abuzz as our guests enjoyed a wonderful day of fashion, food and fun. 

To our supporters, we are overwhelmed by your generosity. The auction items, raffle prizes, lolly buffet, beauty and styling station were all donated by our local business community. The success of the day is truly a community effort.

A very big thank you to Warren Gray and Owen Goodwin for offering their time to run the Sweeps, Adam Alexander for conducting our ‘Live Auctions’ and the ladies of Amaroo Studio Salon, Annette Sanfilippo and Vanessa Harlem, for their amazing contribution, running our makeup and styling stations and presenting the ‘Amaroo Studio Salon’ Fashions on the Field.
