Upcoming Events

The students have been eagerly preparing for the annual Bet Bet & District Athletics sports on Friday. Due to the weather our training hasn’t always gone to plan but we are looking forward to competing. The current weather forecast suggests Friday should be a dry day however please be prepared to have warm clothes/rain coats.

The bus will leave at 8:50am sharp. We are unable to wait for any late arrives as the day runs on a very tight timetable. Don’t forget to bring all friends and family along to cheer on the Newstead students during events.

*** Please note that there will be timed heats for running events. This means that students may come 1st in their heat but not receive a ribbons based on overall times. Teachers will explain this to all students over the week however it is important for families to also be aware. Winning is fantastic but it is also an important life skill to be able to cope if you do not win.

I am also looking for a few more helpers on the sports day. It could be parents, friends or some of the older siblings in secondary school. If you are able to help out please contact the school or let me know Friday morning.

Another very excited event I’m very happy to support is next Wednesday’s Parents & Friends Pancake Breakfast. This is to launch the newly formed Parents & Friends Committee for 2018. Pancakes are able to be purchased for a gold coin donation between 8am and 8:45am.
