Wycheproof P-12 College news- November 2016

The students from Wycheproof P-12 College have been  busy throughout October using all their creative skills to create some fabulous entries for the Wycheproof Show and the Racing Art and Craft Exhibition (RACE event).  
Many students won prizes for their work and all their contributions help to make these two events very  successful. On Friday 27 October, P-8 students ventured to the Wycheproof Shire Hall to view all the works of art in the RACE event.
Congratulations to Abby Morrison who won first prize in the Secondary Section of the RACE event and to the many students awarded 'Highly Commended' certificates.
Nude Food

 Under the guidance of secondary school nurse Jacinta Miller, staff and students were encouraged to think about the food they bring to school and the rubbish and waste that results from some items in the lunchbox. The students marked items for each day in their Nude Food Diary and points were awarded for bringing food in reusable containers without plastic wrap or wrappers that need to go in general rubbish. At the end of the week there was a talk and draw for prizes. It was a great effort by students. All students who had the most points went into a draw and winners were Jack Cowell (Prep-2), Isabelle Mulquiny (Years 2-4) and Angus Forrester (Years 7-8).  

Pictured above left are Savannah Nicholls and Eliza MacDonald  with their  lunchboxes filled with fresh food, bare of wrappers and pictured right Jack Cowell who won the draw for a new lunchbox

Walk to School month was October. The number of kilometres actively travelled by students is yet to be tallied.
