Tinonee school of arts committee and historical society mark Remembrance Day

Tinonee Topics: Wreath placed in remembrance

Tinonee Memorial School of Arts Hall committee in conjunction with Tinonee Historical Society and Tinonee Red Cross members placed a wreath on the Honour Rolls at the Tinonee Hall to remember the service of those from the Tinonee area who had given during the many conflicts that Australia has been involved in on Remembrance Day, November 11.

John and I participated in the informal service at the Wingham Town Hall at 11am which was attended by a small group of locals who laid wreaths on behalf of local groups and themselves.

Later in the day the Wingham RSL Sub-branch held its monthly meeting at Wingham Services Club at 3pm opening with a short service and following business concluded with light finger food service by WSC staff and a chance to catch up with other members.

School news

Another busy week for staff and students at Tinonee Public School. On Wednesday the school marked Remembrance Day with the school leaders conducting a special assembly at which all students participated.

The past week was celebrated with a number of NAIDOC activities and the students having lots of interesting fun activities including face painting and craft activities.

Tomorrow Thursday, November 18 the Year 6 Fun Day is planned with an out of uniform day and activities such as coloured hair, lucky dip, yucky dip, balloon pop etc. with all funds raised going to the 2020 Year 6 gift to the school.

The Stage 3 excursion to Australian Reptile Park will take place on Monday, November 30 departing the school at 6.45am, making for a long day but I am sure all will have an interesting and informative visit.

Hall meeting
