You have two weeks to enter and the new name will be revealed at assembly on Friday the 4th of September to finish of Enviro Week. There are prizes to be won so if you have a great idea for a new and exciting name for our enviro team write it down and put it in the box at the office

Our school is about to take up the Switch to Save offer where all our current ‘energy-thirsty’ halogen down lights will be replaced with energy efficient LED lights free of charge. This offer is open to all businesses and households and Bendigo Bank will donate $1 for every down light replaced in our community to any of our school’s sustainability projects. For further information on how to participate in this offer please contact our Barwon Heads Community Bank® Branch on 52541700 or simply drop in and see them. You don’t need to have an account with the Bendigo Bank. The replacement is carried by a registered Electrician free of charge although free replacement is conditional with having a minimum of eight down lights. If you have less than 8 there is a total fee of $29.95 for the electrician call out.
Friday the 7th was a very busy day at BHPS as we had our whole school art walk. Students had a very interesting and inspiring time looking at art work from all over the school and learning a little about other cultures around the world. What did you find interesting and what did you learn?
Students and parents worked together on Friday the 7th of August to help prepare and sew bags for our borrow and bring back a bag initiative. It was great to see so many helpers and enthusiastic students taking part on the day. We will be holding another session soon to continue to make more bags. Stay tuned for more information.
