Coburg North Primary is going solar! But we need your help!

positive chargeThe independent energy experts at Positive Charge have secured a grant for CNPS toward installing solar panels on the school. This will help us reduce our costs and make a positive difference to the environment.

But we need YOUR help fundraising for the rest! The good news is that you can help whilst also saving money and making a positive difference! By switching to Powershop through the Positive Power campaign and letting the Positive Charge team know that you want CNPS to benefit the school will get $50. They will get this for each household that does, so you can tell your friends and family too! Each panel is worth around $400, which means for every four households that switch we get another panel!

New Equipment in the Music Room

new equipmentLast year we were very grateful when a parent donated some money to the Music department. I decided to buy a DJ mixing unit, which is something we didn’t have. The unit allows students to scratch and mix sounds from a computer and I’m sure they will have a lot of fun creating lots of interesting music.

Interschool Sport

bat tennisOn Friday the 20th of February, the Coburg North Primary School bat tennis teams played against St Bernard's primary. Our boys and girls teams played exceptionally well. The girls beat their opposition 33 to 13 and the boys also beat their opposition 43 to 15. The whole bat tennis team has improved a great deal since last year. I would like to congratulate the whole girls bat tennis team seeing as we only had four girls playing on such a hot day. Yathrib, Eartha, Daria and I were the four girls. Yathrib played exceptionally well seeing as she played three games in the heat, Eartha played two exceptional games which she won and Daria improved with her serving. The boy's team also played really well. Anthony and Merched won their singles games and the rest of the boys won their doubles games. I would like to thank Mrs. Evans for coaching us and I wish the bat tennis team good luck in all future games.

Last week, students in Grade 5/6 participated in a Cyber Conference entitled 'Being a good Bystander'. Students really enjoyed this session and as a result, approached Mr. Prendergast about Pink Shirt Day.

We are happy to announce that on Wednesday the 25th February; Coburg North Primary School will be participating in Pink Shirt Day. Pink Shirt Day will see students and teachers wearing a pink shirt/t-shirt to stand up against bullying in all forms.

Bullying can be common place in our schools, workplaces, homes and over the internet. Please help us raise awareness on these issues and wear a pink shirt to show your support. A gold coin donation will NOT be required on this day.

Thank you in advance. We look forward to seeing everyone wearing pink!
