Newsletter Term 2 – Week 2

Congratulations Beverly Pabedinskas Winner of the Ed-Connect Coordinator of the year.

On Thursday evening I had the great pleasure of attending the Ed-Connect The Ed-Connect Annual Awards Evening held at The Rise in Maylands with Bev our retired School Chaplin. The purpose of the awards is to recognise outstanding members of the community who volunteer to support students across the three states who have Ed-Connect volunteers working in them, (Victoria, Western Australia and New South Wales). At Yale Primary School Bev Pabedinskas has been coordinating the Ed-Connect Volunteers for many years, organising and assisting our volunteers to support our students, and might I say doing a sterling job too. On Thursday evening she was awarded the Ed-Connect Coordinator of the Year and I would like to take this opportunity to thank Bev for her outstanding service to the school over the past 19 years. You have done us proud Bev! Well Done!

Interschool Summer Carnival

Last term, on the 21 March, our interschool teams competed against other schools in the district in Cricket and Softball.  We were relatively successful with our Girls Cricket Team winning the Shield.  Congratulations to the Yale Girls Cricket Team who have also been asked to compete in the State Girls Cricket Championships.  Well done to our Boys Cricket who came a respectable third in their competition and the Softball A Division was second, with the B Division coming fifth.  The Yale tradition of excellent behaviour and sportsmanship was again demonstrated on the day and we are very proud of you in your endeavours.  Thank you to the parents who went along and supported the teams and a big thank you to the teachers who take the time to coach and support the students.
