BOARD OF TRUSTEES UPDATE...
 
Many of you will be aware that our loyal Office Manager, Lois Rowe is retiring at the end of this year. Lois is an essential member of our community. Her organisation, efficiency and eye for detail has helped to shape what is a very smooth running learning community. Although we share in her excitement about the next season in her life, we acknowledge that we are losing an important person in our learning community.
 
What a fantastic Agricultural Day. As a Board we would like to thank and acknowledge all those who were a part of the organisation and running of the day. What a fantastic range of diversity and the success of it was seen in the huge numbers of lambs, calves and pets that were entered, the enjoyment and learning our children experienced, as well as the great turn out by our community. It echo's the strength of community commitment to our school and the good heart the school is in.
 
Many may have noticed that there is some remedial work going on to resolve some paint and plaster issues on our school pool. These should be resolved in the next 2/3 weeks and the pool started to be refilled for the summer season.

RETIREMENT CELEBRATION
What an amazing reflection of appreciation and acknowledgement at the community event on Monday evening. Thank you to all past and current members of our learning community who joined us to celebrate the retirement of Bud and Lois. Two very special ladies who have contributed great things in the lives of our children and the wider learning community. Great women who have influenced many. We thank them for all that they have contributed. It has been not only important, it has been vital. It has made a difference.

NEWBURY ATHLETICS DAY
The Newbury Athletics Day was held in week 6 and was a great success. From year 0 to 8 we have some amazing athletic talent, and the wonderful attitudes and efforts of all students made us very proud. We were also overwhelmed by the turnout of parents and supporters. Thank you to everyone involved in the day.

AGRICULTURAL DAY SUCCESS
Once again, Newbury School hosts an outstanding Agricultural Day. With fantastic support from our community and a great group of sponsors the whole learning community enjoyed a diverse and highly successful rural experience. We had a record turn out of lambs and calves as well as an array of pets both living and represented digitally. Under the leadership and organisation of Bud Christensen, Nina Booth and Alice Viles, the children were also involved in an agricultural rotation. The rotation allowed the students to gain experience in machinery maintenance and farm gate making, horsemanship and care, sheep shearing, bee keeping, stud rams and angora goats.
