It's been an exciting start to the new school year at Hallidays Point Public School.
The school's leaders for 2019, Charlie Keyte, Jack Eschbach, Stevie Burston and River Colliar, have already shown they are outstanding in their new roles.
The school is confident they will do a fantastic job.
The annual swimming carnival was once again a wonderful success with excellent participation and results.
The age winners were:
Juniors - Tahlia Nicholson and Mitchell Cougle
11 years - Bridie Steber and Harrison Tancred
12 years - Charli Kizilos and Angus Gollagong.
Thirty students represented at zone, with 17 of those going on to regionals.
Harrison Tancred went a step further and will compete at State in every race he swam in at regionals.
For the first time in the school's history, all relay teams were successful at zone and advanced to regionals.
Meanwhile, students have been part of the STEMShare Community in term one.
This has allowed students to use technological tools that help develop their skills in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics).
The school has been using the PC robotics kit and the 3D printing kit on trial for one term.
Students have embraced this opportunity to use their critical thinking and problem solving skills in digital technologies.
Member for Lyne Dr David Gillespie dropped by the school to present new Australian, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flags.
Dr Gillespie took the time to speak with the leaders and principal Peter Johnson.
