Our Bush Dance last Saturday 24th August was a great night, with more than 500 in attendance, over $10,000 was raised!

A big thank you to the the Tangara Development Committee, and to the many parents who contributed in one way or another: donating raffle prizes, running the delicious food stalls, and helping with the clean up.

It was an evening to remember!

What a wonderful Grandparents Day and Book Week celebration we had last Friday 23rd August! The day kicked off with our annual Book Week Parade and performances from the Infants in all their creative and colourful costumes! After morning tea, it was the Primary girls turn to entertain the Grandparents with their musical and dramatic talents! Throughout the day students were able to show the Grandparents their classroom where they were able to spend some precious time together and also visit Book Fair in the library. The day ended with a very special Grandparents Day Mass celebrated by Fr Phil Elias. Thank you to all the grandparents, parents, family and friends for attending, and to the teachers, staff and parent helpers for preparing such a wonderful celebration of our Grandparents and Book Week. The memories made on this day will last a lifetime!

On Thursday 22 August 6 girls from Year Four entered for the first time the NSW Girls Teams Chess Challenge run by Sydney Academy of Chess. They entered the Rookies division and played against 13 other schools. Thanks to the wonderful training by Mrs. Rachel Chircop, the team worked well together and managed to win the division. Renee Pan, Gabrielle Kim, Ava Chircop, Elizabeth Alvir, Mary- Faye Farhart and Grace Manassa are to be congratulated on their efforts and wonderful achievements.

On the 14th of August, the Year 5 and 6 Choir girls conducted and prepared by Mrs. Virginia Harrison performed at the Sydney Town Hall as part of the IPSHA Arts Festival. Their performance of Willy Wonka was outstanding! The girls also took part in the combined choir with seven other schools. They sang ‘Somedays’ words and music by Ben Van Tienen and ‘Oye La Musica’ words and music by Jay Althouse. The girls were a real credit to our school.

Year 7 Technology students have successfully coded their robots to complete the line tracing activity. Stay tuned for our next challenge!

Make sure Saturday 24th August is in your diary for our upcoming Tangara Family Bush Dance!
