Knox HPV Race – Thank you!!!

Well done to all riders, parents and friends who attended the Knox HPV race today.  I would like to thank EVERYONE for their help today.  It was difficult to catch up with everyone, especially the people over at the time keeping table. Please know that no matter what job you were doing today your efforts were appreciated. While there were some difficulties to overcome during the day I think we all worked well as a team.

Once again, thank you and well done everyone.

What’s happening in the music room?

Music (Irene Carroll)
Hey! Did you know there is a special music assembly on Wednesday May 8th at 2:30 in the Gym? The Special Music Groups In Grades 3-6 will be performing. Hope you can make it!

Grade 5&6 students have been playing ukuleles and guitars. Which chords or piece of music are you working on? Have you learned how to use the digital tuner yet? Have you had a turn on the electric guitar?

Knox HPV Race This Sunday

What to bring Knox 2013

Hi HPV team

I have attached an extended note with where and when people are required.  Please read this carefully.  If anyone still has the team tops we have been using at races can you please return them to school.

Each rider will need a push bike helmet, pair of bike gloves, a drink bottle and a pair of safety glasses that can be worn during the race; you may need sunglasses and clear glasses. Please make sure that everything is named. Please bring chairs to sit on it will make the adventure much more enjoyable.

For safety reasons no loose clothing is allowed and anyone with long hair will needs to make sure it is tied up securely to keep it away from the moving parts of the vehicle. You will need closed in footwear or ‘runners’ to protect your toes.

If you have any questions please contact me.  Remember we can use the BLOG to communicate with each other.

Hope you had an enjoyable ANZAC day.

Mr Cole
