YANCO Public School has given an insight into what life was like for students and staff alike during term one of 2019.
Young leaders learn
YANCO'S school captains attended the Young Leaders Conference In Sydney to hear from inspiring speakers.
They also enjoyed visits to several of the city's attractions, including the aquarium, Madame Tussauds and watching a musical.
Getting the lay of the land
THE Little Learners program is off to a great start in 2019 at Yanco Public, which is being led by Kara Kroek.
Each week the children participate in a range of role play activities and really enjoy the craft and fine motor activities.
Little Learners are involved as much as possible in school activities with all students.
THROUGHOUT the term students were given the opportunity to take part in several excursions, including to the nation's capital where they explored and learned during their days there.
Stage two and three students have also participated in a range of sporting events, including squash.
In term two the sport program will be gymnastics for K1.2.
Mixing it up
Students from kindergarten to year 6 have been collaborating in mixed age groups.
They've been stretching their creative brains to discover more about science, technology, participating in kitchen garden programs and much more.
In term two they will focus on preparing and caring for the school's winter crop in its vegetable garden.
In term two all students will start preparing for this year's Leeton Eisteddfod and Kids Rapt on Performing concerts.
