It’s been a busy term at St Joseph’s Nagambie.

Students have enjoyed a range of activities including Anzac Day services, a visit from the Life Education Van, a fun day out at GoFish Nagambie, grandparents’ day and the pets in school program.

Foundation student Oliver said Basil the dog paid a visit to the school with his owner, as part of the pets in school program.

‘‘I learnt about how to go up to a dog. You must let the dog smell your hand before you pat it and you have to ask the owner first. It was an exciting visit,’’ Oliver said.

Grade 4 student Lillie said she had an exciting day at GoFish Nagambie.

‘‘During the day I learnt how to cast a fishing line. I saw lots of boats and some yabbies. We learnt about the different types of fish in Lake Nagambie. I had a lot of fun,’’ she said.

Grade 6 student Oliver said he thoroughly enjoyed his school’s cross country run.

‘‘The first race was nice and flat, and it was easy on a nice day. The second cross country was at Murchison and it was the district event. It was quite wet and muddy, but I ended up coming second and ran a personal best for 3km,’’ he said.

‘‘I had a time of 11minutes and 21seconds. Then I went to division at Yea. The course was run at a race course and was very hilly and wet. I came second again.

‘‘I am now on my way to regionals at Winton on June 19. I hope to make it through to the state cross country.’’
