Term 2 is looking like a very busy one!
Mr Holleran is away on Sick leave due to a operation. We are looking forward to his return soon.
Breakfast program is introducing Baked Beans and Porridge to the menu over the cooler months.
Don’t forget to ‘like’ the Harston Primary School page.
Please feel free to have a look at the new 3-6 page that has been created to let you know some of the great things the children in the 3-6 room are doing. We will keep it current and full of pictures and work samples!
Many small rural schools started life in the late 1800’s. They are at the centre of small communities and provide a focal point for support agencies, local business and government funding.
Australia is all about the diversity that abounds in small rural communities. Small schools provide great educational and social opportunities which are enhanced when these communities collaborate.
Twenty-two schools within a 30 minute radius of Shepparton have combined to promote their unique rural communities and the schools within.
http://www.localsmallschools.com.au Will take you to a page of logos linked to these individual communities. Collaboration is the key to success.
Each year our year 6 students make a personal portfolio of their time at Harston Primary. Searching back through our digital photos brings back many memories for the students who started here. You can often hear conversations about who students that have left are as well as comparing school stories with students who have joined Harston Primary later on.
These are some of the photos we have rediscovered.
2001: 11 preps commenced at Harston Primary. Most of these students are now 18 and are completing year 12!
2003: Cluster day at the Kyabram Fauna Park
2004: Unlike other teachers, Mr H still has the same haircut!
2007: year 6 students – hard to believe they were our little preps in 2001.
2007: Our preps who are our current year 6 students.
2009: Junior room girls
Searching through the school photos, Mrs W came across some of the school over the past 12 years.
The school has certainly changed in that time!
2001: students playing on the oval
