RACV Assembly

Tomorrow, Monday 28 November, the RACV Students are hosting the assembly.

The students can bring their Presentation tops to school to wear during their assembly.

We will have some of the vehicles on display and a slide show playing of some of the photo’s we have of the event.

If you have any photo’s of the Maryborough event and are happy to share them, can you please send them to school on a USB or CD so we can put them on the network.

Thank you

Awards & Presentation Dinner

Thank you for such an amazing week/end and event. It has been such a privilege to work with a great group of kids and to experience a great event with the support of you all.

We trust you enjoyed the event, had a safe trip home and enjoyed a nice hot shower.

Just a couple of practical things….

1. If you have any photos from the event you are willing/able to share with us could you please send them along on a USB so that i can collate them all ASAP.

2. Lost Property and loaned items- we will attempt to get things unpacked as quickly as possible and will gather any lost property in Claire’s old room. We will also collect all the loaned items such as eskies, fridges, marquee’s etc… for return. If you know that something is missing please ask your child to check the lost property as it is collected and also let us know if you are waiting for something.

3. CELEBRATION EVENT: A celebration event is planned for the 1st week in December but we have changed the date due to the Brentwood Information evening on Mon 5th. It is now to be held on Tue 6th Dec, 6pm-8pm. We recognise it is a busy time of year and we apologise if this is not a good date for you. Further details to come but the night will be at Mulgrave Country Club and will include some speeches and presentations and light dinner. Our thought is to have some finger food and drinks at bar prices at a small cost per person ($10ish pp- excluding RACV students who are free). (The other option is bistro meals at $20+)

Could you please by Thursday indicate availability and number of possible attendees by completing the survey via the link below

Thanks

Bendigo 2016

Bendigo 2016- a riders perspective

Vehicles speed past, feelings of horror and excitement ring around the track. Racers of all shapes and sizes ready to race in their carts. Fighting for top spot, 89 cars this
is going to be a great race.

On the 20th of August 2016, 30 JPPS students and a couple of teachers and parents travelled down to Bendigo. They were going to compete in a HPV event. We had a pit walk first so that we could get to know the track, we all knew that the hill we walked up was going to be hard.

Afterwards, at 1:00pm the race started. Rider after rider went in the car and came out tired but excited. The 1.1 kilometre track was a great track to race on for our first real race. Insane Bolts, Shazam and Vanquish were all doing great, they were all in the top ten.

Then the last half hour came along. Angus G in Shazam went in alongside Cy in Insane Bolts and James in Vanquish. Shazam just needed to try and stay in the top ten. After a little while Angus G pulled his calf and so a completely exhausted Tom went in to finish the race off for Shazam, but the dilemmas didn’t finish there for Shazam.

Tom came into pits with 10 minutes left and so Charlotte G got ready in a rush to go in the car. Well, the dilemmas DID stop there and Charlotte, Cy and James finished off the race with style!

10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 we yelled and the race was over. We were very proud of our results 2nd for Vanquish, 3rd for Insane Bolts and luckily Shazam maintained their position and came 9th.

Some people stayed for the presentation and Maiden Gully Primary School with Miss Janey won our category and Vanquish came second so we received a $50 Coles express card for our achievement. We will meet up with Maiden Gully PS in Maryborough so we have to try to beat them there.

~Thank you to all the teachers and parents who helped out. We couldn’t of done it without you.~
