Year 12 Exploring Early Childhood
Year 12 EEC students have been visiting the Kindergarten room at Kandos Public School, helping with Literacy as part of their 'Children's Literacy' module of study.
The senior students have helped run workstations involving letter identification, sentence writing and reading exercises.
These little people already know how to construct a sentence using capital letters, interesting descriptive words and full stops.
The seniors have enjoyed the honesty of the Kindergarten children with one telling Jasmine that she needed to brush her hair because it was messy!
The EEC students wrote, illustrated and read their own stories to the students; an activity enjoyed by all.
A huge thank-you to the students, Rachel and Kylie for having us visit on a regular basis and allowing us to work with the students.
The development of the students, in such a short time has been amazing. Cheryl Murray, Exploring Early Childhood Teacher.
Alisa Burlington Exhibits at Gallery 47
With a play on words from Lewis Carrol's 'Alice in Wonderland', Alisa Burlington named her exhibition, '(W)hole'.
The exhibition explores the concept of the hole and is a rhapsody of colour, texture, space and involvement.
Her amazing works of art drag the viewer into a myriad of different spaces, holes that twirl and lead you deeper into the paintings.
With positive and negative space, the different materials, gold foil, spray paints and enamel create portals that keep going.
Every time you glance at one Alicia's works you see something new.
Situated in Louee street, Rylstone in the Saffron Kitchen and Café, Alisa's exhibition will be on until 3rd September.
Operation Christmas Child
Operation Christmas Child is getting ready for the 2019 season. We are inviting you to be a part of this great program.
Last year people in the Ilford, Kandos and Rylstone districts, made more than 200 gifts.
Mudgee's Launch date is Saturday, August 24, 2O19, 2-4pm.
St John's Anglican Church Hall.
The 'gifts' are shoeboxes filled with practical things like;
- Something to LOVE -a soft toy, Teddy
- Something to WEAR-clothes
- Something to PLAY with -small toys, skipping rope etc,
- Something of HYGIENE -washer, cake soap, toothbrush or
- Something for EDUCATION -small exercise book, coloured and lead pencils rubber, sharpener or hair ties/ribbons or harmonica, marbles etc.
While the gifts from Australia are usually taken to underprivileged children of our Asian Pacific neighbours including Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, Vanuatu and Fiji, this year all the boxes from NSW were sent to the Philippines because of a special need in that area.
Every single shoebox brought joy and change to the life of a child, a family, a village.
The Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Mission officially commences on August 1 and concludes on October 31.
Shoeboxes completed by September 27 before school holidays can be collected and transported to Sydney for processing in October.
We invite you, your friends and family, to once again experience the joy of filling at least one shoebox for a special child.
Your own, Christmas wrapped shoebox or pre-formed shoeboxes at 5Oc each can be collected and any further questions you have can be answered by contacting Sue on 0428 588 563 or can be found at https://www.samaritanspurse.org.au/operation-christmas-child/ check us out on: Facebook. Yours Sincerely, Sue Garlinge.
