tyre maze

Thanks to all the keen parents who attended the working bee on Sunday 30th March. Once again we achieved great productivity and the maze is now complete!

A special mention to Joe Dupuche, Sebastian Furness & Ray Madden for sticking with this project all the way through.

There will be an official opening of the maze next term. There are a variety of puzzles to solve within the maze. These are on temporary sheets on the fence. Permanent ones will be put up when we are confident the wording is child friendly. Please give us feedback on this. In the meantime, happy puzzle solving!

Premiers' Reading Challenge

reading challengeWell done to the 44 students who have already returned their Premiers' Reading Challenge consent forms. 

At the beginning of Term 2 you will receive your child's login details along with instructions on what you need to do. But don't wait until Term 2 to start reading and writing down the names and authors of the books you read. The holidays are a great time to get started.

Coburg North P.S. is off to a great start but it is not too late to send your consent form back to the school. With over 200 students, I believe that we have more than 44 great readers at our school.  Happy reading!

Melbourne Vixens Netball Program

melbourne vixensStudents in grade 3/4A, 3/4B and 4/5A have been involved in a 6 week program called Net Set Go organised by the Melbourne Vixens Netball Club.  Each week a special coach taught the students all the necessary skills to play a game of Netball. There were also visits by two Vixens players, Geva Mentor and Amy Steel. Students were given certificates, a drink bottle and were able to have personal items signed. The school received a kit full of netballs and two sets of bibs. The program concluded with a tournament against other schools from surrounding suburbs at Coburg Basketball Stadium on 26th March, which 20 lucky students attended. It was an extremely worthwhile program and the students thoroughly enjoyed themselves and played very well.

Also I would like to thank Tim Corboy (Amelia's dad) for delivering all our bags to camp and then picking them up on the final day.
