Please be aware, if you did not receive a sports voucher, a second batch will be dispersed shortly from the NT Government. SCHOOL BANKING School banking is up and ready to run. Our normal school banking day is Thursday but as we have had no co-ordinator for the first few weeks this term we will be having some catch up days for student savers who may be worried about not earing their 10 tokens. Banking dates for term 1 will therefore be as follows; Thursday 20/2 Tuesday 25/2 Thursday 27/2 Tuesday 4/3 Thursday 6/3 Tuesday 11/3 Thursday 13/3 Thursday 20/3 Thursday 27/3 Thursday 3/4 Please check the notice board for rewards that can be earned. A big thank you to Grace Caravaca-Lopez for taking on the new coordinator role. Slushies The Student Representative Council (SRC) will be selling Slushies every Wednesday lunch time from the Language Caf. Small only for $1.50 Ice Cups! Every Thursday, the year 10's will be selling ice cups to raise money for their trip around Australia. If you find a smiley face at the bottom of your cup and bring it back to the kitchen before lunch finishes, you will receive a free ice cup. Time: Every Thursday lunch when the bell goes Where: In the Middle School Kitchen Cost: 50c per cup New Program for Middle School PCS is starting to expand its 'aquaponics' program in Middle School. This is where we grow fish (barramundi) and use their waste products to grow salad vegetables in a closed system. No water wasted, high utilisation of resources and in the end, good food to eat. Plus it allows lots of awesome hands-on science things to do! Feeding fish, weighting fish growth, testing water quality etc. We are looking for donations of any large waterproof containers of a 1000 litres or more. If you are able to assist, it would be very helpful. If you can help, please email the middle school science teacher at richard.carter@ntschools.net to discuss or arrange pick up. RSPCA Our year 9s enjoying their RSPCA elective and working hard for the good welfare for the animals.
