Glenorie Public School


What an awesome day we had! Crawling under obstacles, dodging water balloons and rolling in mud. Our very first Glenorie Public School Warrior Colour Run was definitely one to remember. Our whole community turned out to have fun on this fantastic day. Thank you to all of our sponsors that made this day possible. The Glenorie Rural Fire Brigade, Bendigo Bank, Glenorie Bakery and even the police were there to have some fun with us. It was an amazing day!

The hilarious and exciting performance of Cinderella was a great night. From the Choirs beautiful singing, to the Band’s wonderful three performances, that took our breathe away. We were still gripping the edge of our chairs when the dancers put on such a performance, but the best was the extraordinary actors that made the night even more spectacular. I am sure you will agree that this tale full of magic, one glass slipper and a poor young girl was just as we have described.

If you want to play the trumpet, flute, and clarinet, bass or just be part of the percussion, the band is your thing. We had a band demonstration with all the instruments and all the kids thoroughly enjoyed it.

Congratulations to Lachie P who represented Glenorie PS at State. Lachlan finished 11th in the 1500m and 17th in the 800m races, which is a huge effort considering how many students have strived to make this event. We wish Lachlan all the best in his future sporting endeavours. Well done Lachie.

The league tag Gala day was a massive success. It was a fun day and everyone had a great time. The senior girls, senior boys and junior boys all made it through to the next round. Good job to the junior girls that sadly did not make it through but tried there hardest on the day. Good luck to the team’s going to the finals we wish you all the best of luck. Congratulations to everyone!

Mia F walks 4km every morning to raise money for girls who live in poverty and cannot go to school. This is her second year, she has raised $2130 and is planning to raise more. She has walked 50km over two weeks. Mia has helped eight girls to go to school for one year. A huge thank you to all who supported her along her journey.

For the last, few weeks Year 6 have been creating a mosaic with Susie Mills to donate to the school for the Year 6 gift. We had the opportunity to do a group project to create the Glenorie Public School shield with all the coloured houses on it and our names around the edges. We mastered the different types of cuts including a square cut, a diagonal cut, an oblique cut and a round cut. We were able to cut the tiles to the size that we needed and glue them on the mosaic. We now have a beautiful mosaic to put up in our school. Susie brought in some extra tiles so we could practise the skills we learnt and make our own designs on a bottle lid. We all had lots of fun making the mosaic with Susie and hope to do another mosaic workshop again. We can’t wait to share our final project with you all. Thank you Susie!
