Tinonee Public School
A very busy time for staff and students this week, as they enjoy the final week of term one.
Congratulations to the boys and girls soccer team on their round in the PSSA Soccer knockout last Monday week. The girls were successful and now move on to the next round whilst the boys unfortunately were knocked out by Nabiac Public.
This week a special scripture assembly was held marking the end of term for K-6 in the school hall and received a small Easter egg to celebrate Easter with the scripture teachers. Scripture will resume in week two of term two.
On Thursday an Anzac Day Service will be held lead by the school captains and come Friday, the last day of term, the much anticipated Easter Hat Parade will be held at 10.15am under the COLA for all K-6 students. Term two will resume on Monday April 29 for teachers with a Staff Development Day with students returning on Tuesday April 30. May all enjoy their holidays and have a happy and safe one.
Visit by family
John and I are eagerly looking to a visit by son Andrew and grandchildren Keala and Korben today, Wednesday as they travel down from Qld to spend a few days with us as they are already on school holidays. Unfortunately our daughter-in-law Sharona has to work and is unable to join them. Grandpa Jack has a few special treats lined up for them whilst they are down with us.
At this month's Friendship Group get together on Tuesday April 2, member Elaine Crossman was treated by her fellow members with another birthday cake, a little belated, for her 90th birthday which fell on March 29.
Sad news last Friday that long time former Tinonee resident Don McKellar passed away on Thursday, April 4. Don and wife Yvonne resided in Tata Place for many years before moving to Taree several years ago. Don, along with wife Yvonne, were regular worshippers at St Luke's Tinonee and St Matthew's Wingham during their time in Tinonee. Don was a returned serviceman, having served with the Royal Australian Navy. Don's funeral service will be held at St John's Anglican Church, Taree on Thursday, April 11, at 9.30am with the wake being held in The Latham Centre of St John's Church. Sincere condolences are extended to wife Yvonne on her loss. Farewell Don - Lest We Forget.
