Year 5 and 6 students have the opportunity to attend camp every year. In term 1, 2015 students attended Camp Cooba near Cooma and in 2014 they went to Borambola near Wagga Wagga.
The Canteen is open Tuesday-Friday. A variety of lunches can be ordered on these days through the canteen. Orders should be written on paper bags with money enclosed and sent to the canteen at the beginning of the day via class baskets. Online ordering is available at www.flexischools.com.au.
The success of the canteen relies heavily on a successful volunteer roster system. We need your help and support and look forward to your assistance in the canteen.
Each year 6 students are elected to the leadership positions of two school captains and two vice captains. A rigorous process including a written application with referees and a speech delivered to their peers is used to select Year 6 students to each of these positions. These students are role models who promote the school values of honesty, excellence, fairness and respect in all they do. School Captains and Vice Captains represent and promote the school at events throughout the year.
We are fortunate in being able to offer Mandarin as a second language with a native speaker Vicky Chen Magee as the teacher at Mount Rogers. Students in years 3 – 6 have a minimum of 1 hour of Mandarin language instruction each week. Our language teacher works closely with the classroom teacher to link the languages program to other aspects of the curriculum.
Every second year a major school concert is held featuring a performance from every child in the school. Parents and other family members are encouraged to attend the concert. The concert is based on our whole school Outreach music program.
Our School Counsellor Nerida Knight is at the school on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please contact the Deputy Principal if you would like to discuss a referral for your child to the counsellor.
