Week 7:

Truffles: What a marathon weekend we had! Many thanks to the small group of parents who came during the weekend to help make truffles. We had a large group of teachers come to help even though they are not in Team Pango - so a big thank you to them for pitching and helping too.

Truffle Making:

This weekend! A last lot of 50 dozen to make to finish orders. Friday 4pm in the Hall. Please come and help.

Swimming: Team Pango have started swimming this week. If your child is not allowed to swim, please send a note to their teacher.

Swimming is part of our school curriculum and is as important as our other school subjects. We aim to have all year 6 students able to swim 200m before they leave our school. We also teach swim and survive skills so they are safe in and around water. Swimming everyday means that repetitive practise reinforces the learning.
