School Activities The school has finished the term in a similar fashion to the start and that is at a run. The children have been involved in several activites this week including many NAIDOC Week events, followed by sporting endeavours and Public Speaking engagements. The boys’ AFL team was highly successful in Bathurst on Monday winning three games then narrowly going down in the Semi final. This was followed by the students of Stage 2/3 going to the High School for a performance that was highly entertaining.
