Adam Cook tries his hand at Bocce!


95 students from Years 3-6 travelled to Griffith today as part of the P&C sponsored Term 3 Reward Day. All students who have displayed appropriate behaviour over the last ten school weeks enjoyed a day at Pioneer Park, celebrating 100 Years of Irrigation in the region and learning about life as one of the first settlers of the region.

Students engaged in a range of activities including and understanding of school in the early days of our region, Italian Migration, aspects of our local Wiradjuri Culture, discussed the local Irrigation scheme and its importance to our area, enjoyed a train ride, made soap, mowed lawns, washed, learned about wood fire cooking, treadle sweing machines and as well as knitting and embroidery, engaged in a game of Bocce and even saw wild goanna as they learned about the MIA's history.

A big thanks is extended to the workers at Pioneer Park and to Murrumbidgee Irrigation who assisted with the cost of travel to and from the event.

There are lots of images from today's Reward Day in the Photo Album section of the website.
