1 Lake Cargelligo Central School News Excellence and opportunities for all in a caring environment Respectful Responsible Learners Find us at: 65 Canada Street, Lake Cargelligo, NSW Telephone: Fax: Address: Website: Term 3 -- Week 8 Week 8 has come to a close and the year is fast winding up for our Year 12 students, who are presently working hard to finalise study commitments, preparing for their HSC examinations and getting ready for the upcoming celebrations of their time at school. Thank you to the parents and carers that attended the secondary parent/teacher afternoon on Wednesday; it was wonderful to see parents and carers engaged with their child/ward s learning. On Wednesday, the Proud and Deadly Awards were held at Griffith High School. It was pleasing to see so many Aboriginal students from the district being recognised for their Academic, Sporting, Cultural and Leadership achievement. Our school was well represented at the awards and our students were outstanding in the way they presented themselves as Respectful, Responsible Learners. This commitment was further extended into the community event that took place immediately after the ceremony. Our students should be very proud of themselves. Braith - Primary Bestie On Wednesday, primary students engaged in a percussion workshop. The students enjoyed the experience and learned a great deal. Our students also represented the school with pride. On Thursday, we had a visit from the Army, who did a presentation for Years This was very well received and the students thoroughly enjoyed themselves and represented the school at the highest level. A reminder: the Oliver Townsend Memorial Concert will be held next Thursday evening 20 th September starting at 7:00pm at the Lake Cargelligo Memorial Hall.

3 Primary Garden Update Over the weeks we have started our compost. Each day we collect food scraps from the primary classrooms to use as part of our compost. We have also spread bark chips which will form the base of our recycled garden. Before spreading the bark chips we weeded and laid cardboard on the ground to minimise weed growth in the future. We have also begun filling our garden beds. We used a combination of dirt, manure and potting mix to ensure optimum growing conditions. Army Reserve Visit On Thursday the 13th of September LCCS had a visit from five Army Reservists based out of Wagga Wagga, from Alpha Company of the 1st/19th Battalion. The Army Reservists who visited the school have normal jobs outside of the Army; such as school teacher, diesel mechanic, nurse, truck driver and office worker. They spoke to the Year 9, 10, 11 and 12 students about some of the possible part-time careers in the Army. They also brought along some of the Army equipment that they use; including packs, webbing, body armour, dummy grenades, rifles, machine guns, a grenade launcher and two types of rocket launcher. The students had a fantastic time getting their hands around some real-life military gear and even enjoyed getting "cammed-up" with the soldiers. Levi Monshing Shout Outs!
