On Wednesday the bi-yearly Beer Cup between Red Cliffs and Irymple Primary was held. The students played Netball and Football for the winter competition. Irymple Primary currently holds the Beer Cup and thanks to good play and sportsmanship we again retained the Cup. Our football team won comfortably, Netball A were defeated by 7 goals and Netball B won by 2 goals. We thank the staff from Red Cliffs Primary School as well. We are proud to be part of an Interschool sporting event that promotes good sportsmanship and a sense of fun. Thank you to Mrs Donna McLean who assisted with umpiring and to those parents/grandparents that attended to support their children.

Our school magazine team have already started working on what promises to be another very high quality keepsake that will stay with families for many years to come. We are now looking for sponsors for this year’s magazine. Can you help, or do you know of a business that can support the production of our magazine?
Congratulations to all the parents that were able to celebrate the work of Semester 1 with their children reading their reports and attending the Parent Teacher Interviews on Tuesday. Thank you to all the staff for their time on the day as well. Much preparation goes into report writing and interview day and it is very much appreciated by the school community. If you were unable to attend please ensue that you make a time to meet with your child’s teacher early in Term 3.
Please return the books if you do not wish to support the school on this occasion, but otherwise we would love you to start selling to maximize the next few weeks to earn as much money as possible towards Stage 2 of our Security Cameras across the school. The cost for this is just over $2,000.
With the onset of the colder weather please come and have a look and see if any lost item/s is/are located in the lost property area.
We hope that all staff and children have a happy and relaxing holiday in readiness for a busy Term 3 ahead. Ms Hazel will be acting Assistant Principal on our return from holidays and Mrs Dilek Colak will be in room 7.
Thank you to all the children who tried so hard today and for all the parents that came along to watch their children. Many students have put a lot of time into training at school and in their own time. Well done to all involved!

Thank you to all the families that have already returned raffle books to us. The holidays are a great time to sell a few for friends and relatives. With a new car as the prize it is an attractive raffle. The School Council appreciate your support very much.
Each year the Year 5 and 6 children get the opportunity to participate in interschool sports competitions. This type of event takes huge organisation at school level and on the day. It is vital that all students who represent our school are very aware that their behaviour is to be exemplary at all times. At Interschool sports last week a small number of students chose to ignore reasonable teacher instructions that were made to ensure their safety and supervision at all times. For these actions there will be consequences and the inability to represent the school in future sporting events.
Again we have had some parent queries in the Prep to Gr 2’s, about the levels of readers their child/ren are reading. Sometimes teachers get requests to move students up levels. The readers that children take home are always at what is called an EASY LEVEL – this means that they can read the words (decode) with 95 out of every 100 words or more being accurate – or if the book has less than 100 words the accuracy level still must be at least 95%.
