Skink art aims to save species

NEW art installations in the Kosciuszko National Park (KNP) are raising awareness for the Guthega skink as hikers walk along the Illawong Track.

Carved into granite boulders, a common feature of the Guthega skink’s habitat, these creative depictions are a reminder of the unique and vulnerable native animals hiding along the tracks, a spokesperson for National Parks and Wildlife Services (NPWS) said.

A day of exploration, learning for students

By Cooma North Public School

In an exciting and educational adventure, Stage 3 students from Cooma North Public School recently embarked on a field trip to Snowy Hydro to celebrate the company’s 74th anniversary. This remarkable day was filled with engaging activities, providing the students with a unique opportunity to learn and have fun simultaneously.

The day began with the students donning professional Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), immersing themselves in the world of the workforce. This experience not only allowed them to understand the importance of safety in industrial environments but also gave them a glimpse into the daily lives of the dedicated professionals at Snowy Hydro.

Delegate students busy

By Delegate Public School

Our five representatives at the South Coast PSSA Athletics Championship achieved a great deal of success on the day. 

Our combined Small School Relay Team of Lily, Amelia, Lola, and Georgina finished third and thus qualified for the NSW PSSA State All School’s Athletics Championship at Sydney Olympic Park in October. Lily blew the opposition away in her heat of the 9 Year’s Girls 100m and then backed up to finish 9th  overall in the final. 

Fred just missed a placing in his two events; however, it is worth noting that in the Senior Boys MC Shot Put, Fred threw a personal best, improving on his previous best by over 1.5m. 

This team of three Year 5 students and one Year four student competed against all other teams made up of Year 6 students. To qualify for state given these challenges is another outstanding result for our school.

Is your child starting school next year? Consider The Alpine School.

Choosing a school is a big decision and can be a complex and anxious time for parents who are keen to ensure that starting school is a positive experience for their child. 

The Snowy Mountains is fortunate to have a range of options, the most recent addition being The Alpine School, a non-denominational school that delivers the NSW Curriculum with a Steiner-inspired approach.

So, what’s different about this approach and what does it look like in practice?
