Year 5 Excursion: Last week, the Year 5 students from Canowindra Public School went on an overnight excursion to Canberra
the nation’s capital as part of their History unit. Some of the sights they visited were the Australian War Memorial, AIS, Parliament
House and Questacon. The students had a fantastic time and were commended by the public on their beautiful manners and conduct. Well done Year 5!

Canowindra Community Garden Update: The garden is looking so wonderful at the moment with thanks to the most frequent gardener. Conversation Gardening will now be held every Friday, as opposed to every fortnight. It is also time to reinstate the watering roster. So, if this is something you would like to do for the garden, send a message via Facebook to the Canowindra Community Garden page and let them know which day suits you best. There will also be a backup watering team – so even if that is all you can manage for the Garden at the moment- it would still be very valuable.
