GENEROUS DONATIONS from our wonderful parents who supported the Jeans for Genes and Jersey Day SRC Fundraiser enabled $312 to be raised for this excellent cause. Every dollar donated goes directly to the Children’s Medical Research Institute and helps find treatments and cures for children’s genetic diseases.

Our kindergarten class KW recently had a funfilled and adventurous day at Calmsley Hill City Farm. The cow milking was certainly a highlight along with witnessing their class teacher, Mrs Bray, crack the whip and watching the working dog show. There were many sleepy heads on the bus on the way home.

Courageous and determined efforts were displayed by Galston Public School’s Athletics Team which competed in the Beecroft PSSA Zone Track carnival. What a fine group of sporting ambassadors these students were. Congratulations to Amber who placed 1st in the 100m sprint and 3rd in the 200m event.
