St Joeys' Students of the week

24th November 2021


Our Intensive Swimming program started last week. The pool water is a comfortable 25 degrees and the students have been enjoying getting in the water. We are grateful to have the expertise of trained swimming instructors Miss Shani Marshall and Miss Amie Middlemiss to work with the non-swimmers. The program continues for three weeks in total, building the students' swimming and water safety skills and using Barraba's wonderful aquatic facilities.

St Joey's Speedsters is coming up. Year 5/6 children have built billy carts and will race them on December 10. Younger primary students will have a turn of the carts and the infants children will be racing some hobby horses.
