()COONABARABRAN PRIMARY ZONE CROSS COUNTRY - COOLAH
Last Friday Primary students travelled to Coolah to participate in the Zone Cross-Country Trials. The day began with a brisk walk over the course to familiarise the students with the path prior to the races. As always, students were wonderful ambassadors for our school and community; displaying commitment, determination and a high degree of sportsmanship. Mendooran students kept pace with the best of them with Anna Ward (8/9yrs) and Jade Tumbri (10yrs) running fourth in their age groups. Toby Adams and Kyle Hartley took out 1st and 3rd respectively with their combined efforts taking out the team award 11 Years Boys division. These students will now represent Coonabarabran Zone at the North West Cross Country. Primary students will compete on the day alongside the following selected Secondary students at the North West Cross Country held in Coolah on Friday 15th June 2012: Rebecca Sciberras, Jesika Harkup, Kerrie Ward, Britney Rutter, Jackson Adams, Dylan Gray, Kurt Williams, Amanda Sladden, Shanoa Hartley, Derek Washbrook, Tiarney Crothers, Danielle Sciberras, Steven Rutter, Steven Leask, Robert Austin, Amelia Washbrook, Bella Moffatti, Shaylah Taufa, Bradley Ward, Shakirra Watt, Brendan Roberts and Patrick Fallon.

PRINCIPAL’S NOTES
Principal’s Meeting Last Monday we hosted the entire Warrumbungle group of schools Principals for a daylong meeting. Mr Cronk who was coordinating the meeting and all of the Principal’s were very impressed not only with the hospitality shown, but also the whole feel of the school that they experienced when they met a number of our staff and students. They were all very impressed with Mendooran Central School and asked for their gratitude for the hospitality to be passed on. I would especially like to thank those who were involved with the catering, Mrs Waters and her team of staff and hospitality students again did a Stirling job of promoting our great little school. Athletics Carnival This Friday we have our Athletics carnival. As organisers and teams will be preparing this week and PE classes continue to practice in class, I remind students that this is a regular school day and attendance is compulsory. As with any school day, the only reason for being absent is from illness or an important family occasion, and if these are the case, then parents should contact the school so that an exemption is approved and no absence is marked against your students record. Focus on Reading Our Focus on Reading professional learning for some staff is continuing today. Our consultant will be working with key staff all day advising and guiding on how improved strategies to assist student’s reading and comprehension can be implemented into the classroom. Uniform I remind all students and parents that full school uniform is compulsory for all students. If you have had a washing mishap or an item has been lost, please ensure that your child brings a note for that day and we will endeavour to find a clean uniform to borrow. If you are having trouble financing a uniform, please contact me at the school and we will assist to find appropriate support.

KINDERGARTEN/ YEAR 1 NEWS Kindergarten and Year 1 students will continue to look at Needs and Wants this week by investigating where food comes from. We will start looking at the structure of procedure text types and follow some procedures to show how some food products are made.
Last Friday students went to a performance called "STAMP OUT BULLYING". This was a presentation about how people can deal with bullying. The performer used magic tricks to engage and support his theme in an entertaining way, while sharing an important yet simple message about getting along with others.
This Friday we will be holding the Infants Athletics Carnival. Infant students will participate in morning literacy activities in class at 9am as usual, with a break at 10am. Age races will commence at around 10.20am inside the fence beyond the play equipment, followed by novelty relays. After lunch Infants Students will compete in events such as Shot Put and Long Jump, finishing the day’s events watching and cheering the Champion Races. I invite parents to come and cheer competitors on this enjoyable day.

YEARS 2/3/4/5 NEWS This week in spelling we look at the sounds ‘ai’, as in rain and ‘aw’ as in claw. In Mathematics we continue to practice counting money and learn more about fractions. Yr 2,3,4,5 is very excited about building a no-dig vegetable garden. We will begin planting some seeds this week into trays to raise them in a small hot house-if you could spare some winter vegetable seeds it would be appreciated. The garden will be made mainly from hay. A note tomorrow will be going home about this. In our Cogs unit we will continue to look into the hardships the First Fleet and the convicts endured eg: housing, work, flies, heat, lack of food etc. Homework this week consists of a Spelling sheet, completing the 2nd page of our rhyming sheet and for Mathematics a money sheet. Please keep practicing your times tables with random questions like 2x4= ?, 4x2= ?, 10x5= ?, 5x6=? etc. Congratulations to Tom Yeo, Casey Adams and Jade Tumbri for receiving their pen licence. Have a super week!

MAJOR EXCURSION - BATHURST SNOWY MOUNTAINS This year our major excursion is heading to Bathurst and the Snow.! It will be an exciting trip full of adventure and spaces are limited on our bus – only 9 seats left! We have had many excursions in the past years that have been great successes and have been well supported, this year will be the best yet. The itinerary, attached to this newsletter, is full of activities and the students attending will have memories of it for a lifetime. Anyone from Year 4 through to Year 12 can attend; the students will learn about our colonial history and enjoy an opportunity that many kids rarely get when we hit the slopes on days 3 and 4. If finance is a problem, we are more than capable of making payment arrangements; many families choose to do so. Please contact Mr Spora for details on how we can help provide this opportunity for your child. In order to secure your child’s space on the bus a deposit of $50 and the permission note must be provided asap.

COMMUNITY NEWS MENDOORAN PONY CLUB WELL DONE TO BLIGH 10TH AT STATE SHOWJUMP EQUITATION. Bligh and Sam travelled to Camden for a very fancy weekend of amazing competition on beautiful ground. Bligh and Tornado did really well and received 10th place. Sam was really pleased with Gus at his first state event he jumped really well and by the last round was not nervous. Good luck to everyone competing at the North West Equestrian expo this weekend this is an amazing event and well worth the trip to Coona just to have a look at how well they run this 5 day event with so many horses and riders coming from all over the state as well as some interstate Schools competing. Victoria Monk, Emma Bennetts, Sophie and Abby Skinner all had an early start and travelled to Narromine gymkhana on a foggy Sunday morning. They all had a great day competing in 4 flat work and 8 sporting events. They all collected lots of ribbons, with at least one first place each. Sophie and her horse Nougar had a great combination going, culminating in them winning champion 9 and under 11 years age group. The Meeting scheduled for next Tuesday will be postponed to the following Tuesday due to the expo. Don’t forget nominations for the zone O.D.E are now due on Global entries. J Smith
