School Photo Competition 2019The 3rd annual Rotary sponsored school photo competition is on again, and this year other rural schools are also included - so it's not just us and our Community of Learning (like it was last year). There is an overall theme this year relating to this year being the 250th anniversary of Captain James Cook's voyage to NZ in 1769, so make sure your photos somehow can relate to that. The categories are Yrs 1-6 Boats; Yrs 7-10 Monuments; and Yrs 11-13 Shadows. $50 1st prize for each category and $50 prize for the Supreme winner as well. Entries to be emailed to Mr Kirk before 3pm Fri 17 May (PDF format) with your name, year level, school, and a brief description of why you like your photo. 
School Yearbook2018 school yearbook is out now and available at the office for $15 a copy (you can look through a copy in the library for free)
