Boneo Buzz: 9th September

Dear Parents and Carers,

Hard to believe we are nearing the end of Term 3, and in true Boneo style we have a big final week planned before we head into the holidays.

Our Year 4’s are heading off to Golden Valleys Camp in Flinders on Monday. We know they will have a wonderful time.

On Tuesday, our Year 6 will perform Shrek for the entire school. Please make sure you have consented on Compass. Your child will not want to miss the show.

Wednesday night, via Zoom, is Family Trivia night. Get the children in their pjs, have the snacks ready and join the family fun. We will share the Zoom link on Wednesday morning.

Finally, to cap off a wonderful term, Friday is our annual House Footy Day. Children and parents need to dress in footy colours and be ready for some fun on the oval. Parents will be treated to an egg and bacon breakfast along with the coffee van.

Tickets for our Oaks Day fundraising event will be released for sale on Monday 3rd October at 9am. Please contact the school office to purchase/reserve your tickets.

Tickets are priced at $90 per person and includes; 3 course meal, complimentary drink on arrival and the ever popular lolly buffet.

A very big thank you to the parents and staff who have already accessed the ‘Oaks Day Sponsors’ google doc shared by Mandy, and have started collecting donations.  The auctions are the major fundraiser of the event, so we encourage all families to support our school by sourcing donation items. 

Thanking you for your continued support of our school. 

Instrumental Music

Hello parents and students,

My students have had such a great term of lessons and have worked so hard! In our lessons this term we have been focusing on reading and understanding notation, different styles of music and how we can add little bits of music theory into our learning as we go. This allows us to complement the amazing work of Ms Sison in classroom music lessons. 

Also a big thank you to parents for their support and ongoing encouragement of students. I’ve also been hearing about how many parents play music, have records and music playing a lot at home. So many rock star parents out there! 

I’m looking forward to next term and welcoming some new students, new instruments, new songs and pieces and building on this strong foundation that my students have built.

For those parents wanting to enrol their child/children in lessons you can find out more details here: or email me directly –

I will be teaching Acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass and Violin from next term and spaces are filling quickly so first in best dressed! 

I hope everyone has a great holiday and students keep up their practising and creativity over the break. 

In the meantime, if you have any questions or feedback regarding how the feel the lessons have gone or even any thoughts on how I can help, you can contact me directly. 

Kind regards,

Gareth Holloway
