One of the more significant changes created by the recent introduction of the School Opal card is the need for students to tap on and off when traveling to and from school.

Opal data gathered by tapping on and off is used to determine demand for bus services. If students don’t tap on and tap off, services may be cancelled due the lack of recorded patronage.

Students are reminded that tapping on and off at the beginning and end of each trip is one of the conditions of using a School Opal card.

Your assistance helps us ensure we are able to provide the appropriate level of service to students.

Congratulations to Bakis who attended the Australian National Judo Championships in Melbourne recently. It seems his persistent and hard Judo training finally paid off. 

Bakis won GOLD at the Australian National Championships in Melbourne on the weekend.

He won Gold in the under 81 kilo under 18 years Cadet division. He is now ranking number 1 in Australia.

He also won Bronze in the under 21 years division and Bronze in the open age division. He was on fire.

Bakis' dream is to go to the the next Olympics in 2020 TOKYO.

I am thrilled to announce to our school community that we have gained a grant from our local member and Sport NSW to refurbish our cricket nets on the back oval.

As you might be aware our nets are in a poor condition.

I would like to thank our local Strathfield Cricket Club President, Daryl Chappelow for his support and the support of our Local member Ms Jodi McKay.

Mr Kennedy
