    Working Bee - Saturday!

    Our P&C will be holding a “Working Bee” this

    Saturday, 19th June. We are looking at getting the

    garden at the front of the school looking even

    more fabulous. We hope to have lots of parents

    and families join us to make light work of this

    upgrade! Hopefully lots of you can join us even if

    for just an hour or two.

    District Cross Country

    Congratulations to all those students that travelled

    down to Byron Bay for the District Athletics

    Carnival accompanied by Mr Tunaley. Those

    students were: Tabitha, Maddison, Emily, Sophie,

    Yasmine, Dempsey, Toby, Casey, Tyson, Xane, Jet,

    and Mckenzie.

    Maddison came sixth in her event and will now

    proceed through to the regional carnival this

    Buddy Bench - Gold FM

    The ‘Buddy Bench’ is an idea that Richard, Bridge

    and Spida in partnership with Gold FM want to

    implement in Gold and Tweed Coast Schools. The

    Buddy Bench is a permanent bench at school

    where children are encouraged to sit when they

    are feeling left out. If a classmate sees someone

    sitting on the bench they are urged to invite them

    to play, walk, or talk with them.

    Richard, Bridge and Spida started installing Gold

    FM Buddy Benches in February and will continue

    throughout the year.

    At our P&C meeting we discussed the Buddy

    Bench and I would ask if you are in favour of such

    a bench at MEPS that you get on to the Gold FM

    website to register. We are hoping that the more

    interest on the site from us, the better the chance

    of having one of the benches at our school.


    Netball Gala Day

    Good luck to Mrs Robinson and all our netball

    players who will be representing our school at the

    netball gala day in Tweed tomorrow. We wish you

    all the best!

    Have a great week!
