Canola brightens up region
Rene Martens was having a “fairy uninteresting” drive to work on Monday but just had to take a snap of the beautiful flowering canola fields at Cosgrove South.
On Wednesday, August 14, foundation students from Tatura Primary School celebrated 100 days of school. Children enjoyed dressing up as 100-year-old people and participating in fun activities. We saw some lovely wigs, glasses, walking sticks, woollen jumpers, long skirts, beads, trousers and hats. The day started off with a parade and parents/carers enjoyed watching happy faces as students and teachers showed off their creative costumes. Students then rotated throughout the day to decorate a ‘100 Days Smarter’ headband, create an old-person collage using modelling clay and participate in play-based activities relating to the number 100. Foundation students enjoyed eating delicious cakes to mark the occasion. A special mention and thank you to Tracy Fitzpatrick for making an amazing 100 Days cake and to Simone Dunne for supplying scrumptious theme-based cupcakes. A big thank you to our foundation families for the effort they put in to organising costumes. It was a terrific day enjoyed by all.
Rene Martens snapped these pictures on his travels across the region during the week. Some of the pictures show the countryside surrounding Nalinga, while the others capture the reflections from a Shepparton East channel. The photos show the beautiful scenery we have across our area.
