Boneo Buzz: 6th May

Dear Parents and Carers,

Today’s House Cross Country and Mother’s Day event was such a wonderful day with great spirit! I appreciate the significant efforts of all staff, student leaders and parent volunteers to make this day so successful. We managed to complete all of the races in fabulous time and the weather held off, thank goodness. 

A big, big thanks to Mr David Greening for organising and running of the event. To our incredible and encouraging House Leaders, they really did demonstrate our values in action. A huge thank you to Rosebud Secondary College for supporting us with the much-needed coffee cart. It was just what we needed to counteract the artic breeze!

Once again, our wonderful teachers ensured our mothers and special friends had fun in the classrooms to acknowledge Mother’s Day. It was a big team effort and super successful as a result.

A huge thank you to Amanda and our wonderful team of parent helpers yesterday. The children loved shopping at the Mother’s Day stall.

Last Thursday, a student left their school bag across the oval (near the cricket club rooms) at the end of the day. The bag was gone when the family checked and it has not been returned to school. The bag contains the students lunch box, reading diary, readers etc. Please return the bag to the office if found.
