Bingara Central School News: Week 6, Term 1 (March 3, 2011)

March 4, 2011

On Wednesday 2nd March, author Geraldine Hallahan visited students from Kindergarten to Year 4. We are extremely privileged to have an author visit us here at Bingara Central School. Geraldine read her book, “My Feathered Friend Magoh Magpie”. The students enjoyed Geraldine’s visit immensely. I would like to thank Mrs Gail Philpott for organising the visit.

Last Friday we welcomed James Sweaney, a Manager from the Commonwealth Bank in Inverell, to our Primary assembly. James was here to present the school with a cheque for $300 in recognition of our support for school banking over many years. The $300 will be used to purchase Primary teaching resources and I remind all families that school banking is available for students on Tuesdays.

Families have again been invoiced for the P & C levy set at $20 per students and capped at $50 per family. I urge all families to  make this contribution which assists the P & C to fulfil it’s important role in the school. The P & C’s main target for 2011 is to contribute to the fundraising effort the school is making towards acquiring a school bus. A bus would make access to activities such as sporting visits and local excursions more affordable for all families. 

As an added incentive a musical performance called See Sharp has been booked for June this year. The performance features blind guitarist Lorin Nicholson. Students who have paid the levy will have free entry while other students will need to pay the normal entry fee to see the performance. Please contribute to the P & C by paying the levy and other school costs to the front office as soon as possible.
