Ardtornish Dance - Regional Finals
On Friday the 11th of May 2018 seven dance sports teams represented Ardtornish in the regional finals of the Dance Star, Glee, 100% Cheer and Aerobics Competitions at the Golden Grove Arts Centre. The day was kicked off by our hip hop team, Ardtornish with Attitude. They performed strongly and won their section by less than a point.
Next up was our Future Legends Cheer team Blue Sparkles. They came out smiling, danced well and have been invited to participate in state finals. After that we had our primary aerobics teams, Ignite and Squad Goals. Both teams performed well on the day, with Squad Goals in 1st place and Ignite in 3rd. Primary Cheer Red Shimmer came out next and placed second with a high energy routine.
The last team of the day was our Primary Open Aerobics Triple Rhythm who came 1st in their section. They had some tough competition, but their energy levels and timings were amazing. The head judge commended our teams on their behaviour and our coaches for their choreograph, amazing feedback to receive!
We are very proud that all teams are through to states on the weekend of the 23/24 of June at Brighton Performing Arts Centre. We wish our teams the very best of luck.
Are your contact details up to date?
Earlier this term when we were forced to close the school due to a water emergency, office staff were required to contact all families as promptly and effectively as possible. We predominately used Skoolbag, Google +, text messaging and phone calls. Some teachers also used Class Dojo and Seesaw to contact families.
During this process it became apparent that many families have changed their contact details but not informed the school. It is of crucial importance that in the case of an emergency we can contact all families promptly. From next week we will be sending home printouts of contact details.
Please check, make any changes and return to your child’s class teacher as soon as possible. If there are no alterations please write no changes on the sheet and sign before returning.

We are looking for anyone who would like to coach or play in a netball team of any age. Coaches for under 7 & under 9 don’t need any experience. They really just need a parent to put bibs on them every week and collect the money.
If you are interested in either becoming a coach or playing in an Ardtornish netball team, please contact the front office and we will forward your details on to Kym Mcleod our Netball Coordinator.
Amy’s program was a great success and we are most grateful for the extraordinary effort that she made to share her skills and knowledge. Copies of her recipes are available on request
Instructions for making the wax wraps are easily located on You Tube. If there is any interest we could make some more another day – just speak to John.
Amy said that, her time permitting and sufficient interest, she might have another course in 2019.
If you have something that you wold like to share with or present to families, speak to John or one of the team.
There are still vacancies for Leanne’s session on Saturday 23 June.

Year 3/4 ~ Kiva
We are excited to share with you our Year 3/4 student’s support of the non-profit organisation KIVA.
Kiva connects people, through lending, to alleviate poverty. Leveraging the Internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25.00 to help create opportunities around the world.
The students in Room 22 have supported Kiva since 2011, enabling people in even remote areas of the globe, to hold the power to create opportunities for themselves and others. We’ve made over 65 loans to people in 28 different countries.
This year students have been given the task of helping out at home to earn a gold coin. This will contribute to our joint effort to support this very worthy cause.
Of course the wonderful thing with Kiva is that each of the $25.00 loans are repaid over time and so our help just keeps rolling on, year after year.
Students work in small groups to choose the recipient for their loan. This decision can be really quite difficult as students voice their opinions, compassion and make decisions together to maximise their help. Working collaboratively was an important part of this process.
We are currently in the process of completing our jobs to raise money and then the selection process will begin.
Some students stacked and unloaded the dishwasher, tidied their rooms and swept up leaves. The variety of jobs is fantastic and great feedback is being given to each student by their parent or caregiver. Students show great pride sharing how they helped their family. This will become the focus of our Shared Talks this term.
We are extremely proud of the student’s wonderful effort and consideration for others.
Dear Kiva Lender, Sannu! Greetings from the Babban Gona Farmers Organization!
I would like to first start by expressing my gratitude to you for supporting us in our mission to alleviate poverty by empowering Nigerian farmers. These smallholder farmers are often excluded from the conventional financial system. They have great difficulty in procuring farm inputs such as seeds and fertilizers at affordable prices, making it nearly impossible for them to escape the cycle of poverty.
With your help, Babban Gona has been able to provide a holistic agricultural package designed to improve crop yields, reduce production costs and help the farmer members obtain the best prices for their produce. We are proud to share that this has led to a 2.8X increase in net income and a 2X increase in crop yield.
Together we can make a difference.
