Half way through the school year, the new kindergarten students at Narooma Public School have settled into their school lives just fine.

Principal Paul Sweeney said Narooma Public School had an intake of 60 new kindy students this year, which was up slightly on previous years.

The 60 students are divided into three classes – the Possums, Bilbies and Whales, and their three teachers are Jaci Murphy, Dan Roberts and Narelle Constable.

The Narooma News asked some of assistant principal Jaci Murphy’s students what they were enjoying about the new school year.

“My teacher – she gives us stuff to learn,” Alice said.

“Writing stories,” Jett said.

“Playing with friends,” Daniel said.

In other school news, Narooma Public School is hosting a NAIDOC Family Night starting at 5pm on Tuesday, June 27 in the hall. The night will have girls and boys doing Aboriginal dance and awards handed out to Indigenous students.

There will also be a launch of the third book in the “Deadly Aunty” series of books being put together by Tashe Long, facilitator of Narooma Schools as Community Centres. The previous two books were “Aunty Rechaeal Becomes a Train Driver” and “Aunty Hazel and the Guardians”. This third book is about local Mary Moore and is titled “Aunty Mary Comes Back to Country”.
