A big thank you to everyone who has contributed to this column throughout the year.
Yenda Public School is ending the year on a high after its presentation night.
The school is saying farewell to a number of staff including Mrs Wallace, Mrs Conlan, Ms McIntyre and Mrs Long. All teachers are sad to be leaving such a vibrant little school, and wish everyone well in 2020.
The new principal, Gary Workman, will step in in 2020 and will no doubt lead the school toward a wonderful centenary celebration in October.
Congratulations go to new school captains Kaylee Brown, Quade Callinan, Isla Sergi and William Terrazas. Congratulations also to sports captains Isaac Conlan, Logan Newman, Lili Vaccari and Armani Mallamace.
The year 6 mini fete, to raise money for a farewell gift, will be held on Wednesday, December 11. It will surely be a day of fun.
Year 6 students will be farewelled with a formal dinner at the Diggers Club on Thursday, December 12 followed by a school disco.
