Chelsea Webster’s citation from classroom teacher Hayley Crowle.
 
Eildon Primary School is proud to announce our recipient of this year’s Rotary Primary School Encouragement Awards is Chelsea Webster.
 
 Chelsea is an amazing student who constantly strives to achieve her personal best in all areas of her learning. Chelsea is always smiling, approaches each challenge with enthusiasm and optimism.  
 
She is highly supportive of her peers, actively offering assistance however they need it. She is caring and kind, quick to rush to those that are hurt or upset, comforting them. In class, Chelsea works hard to do her best, listens to feedback and advice, acting on it to improve her learning. She is very creative, with amazing artistic talent which she infuses into all areas of her schooling. It has been a delight to have taught Chelsea and see her grow into a wonderful young person with a huge heart.
 
We wish her all the best in her future endeavours.

Aiqha Mosquite citation from her classroom teacher Ms. Alexandra Wilson.
 
 On behalf of Marysville Primary School and our community, I wish to sincerely thank Alexandra Rotary for their continued support toward these educational scholarships in our cluster.
 
It is our great pleasure to nominate the 2020 Marysville Primary School Year 6 recipient, Aiqha Mosquite.
 
Our nomination is in acknowledgement of the Rotary’s Award’s purpose; to encourage Aiqha to pursue lifelong learning and rise to her personal potential.
 
Aiqha has consistently demonstrated a passion for learning, a deep commitment toward achieving her personal best and a genuine care and concern for others.
 
Aiqha is a purposeful learner who always comes to class well prepared and works hard in all areas to learn new skills. She manages her time and effort well and has developed a keen interest toward team sports, particularly with friends and others at lunch breaks. Aiqha participates in all school activities, including fundraising days, camps, athletics and netball.
 
Aiqha has been a valued member of our school community since Year Prep and has meticulously upheld our values of Respect, Honesty, Responsibility and Community.
She has consistently demonstrated qualities of a caring member of the school, being a role model and helping others in the yard and in the classroom.
 
The support of family is an important addition to the life of all children and Aiqha enjoys the love and support of her family. This was particularly evident this year during Remote and Flexible Learning. Aiqha was always present online and collected materials from school, with assistance from her family.
 
It is this dedication and commitment to our school and community that makes Aiqha a worthy recipient of this award.
 
Again, I would like to thank the Rotary Club of Alexandra for providing this fantastic award to all the deserving recipients in our Cluster.
 
On behalf of Marysville Primary School, congratulations Aiqha on a magnificent achievement. We all believe in your potential and hope this award inspires you in life and your educational journey.

Our guest speaker this week was Janet Baxter who runs Nanna Jan’s ‘Third Drawer Down’.
Janet opened a pop-up shop four years ago - it was expected to run for three months and is still going strong!
The shop is both a source for haberdashery and craft supplies, a retail outlet for locally made craftwork, and also a community hub.
With the move to larger premises in the former Footsteps shopfront, it became possible to run classes where skills could be shared. The shop became home to a knitting group, Yarck CWA craft workshops. ‘Rural Australians for Refugees’ is a beneficiary from a project recycling old table linen ($10,000)
In the early stages of the pandemic many, many masks were sold, or facilitated.
Anne Coward is a dab-hand at mending, and 20% of the income generated from her sewing is donated to Royal Children’s Hospital Appeal.
The shop also supports ‘The Samaritan’s Purse’ project by covering postage of shoebox-sized parcels filled with school supplies and hygiene requisites for recipients in third-world countries (500 x $10 per box so far).
Stock to Nanna Jan’s ‘Third Drawer Down’ comes from haberdashers and small warehouses which have closed, so prices are very reasonable.
ASC students have recently had fun sourcing costumes for muck-up day, and some students have taken up sewing / craft and mending during Covid19 isolation.
President Helen noted the shop has been a hub of activity and a great resource for the community.

President Helen Gibb and John Cannon awarded Max Young with his award outside the grounds on Wednesday. Thanks to his teacher Michael Heyes for making this possible.
 
Students from Marysville, Eildon and Alexandra will feature in coming weeks. Buxton hasn't a grade six student this year at the school.
 
Max was nominated for the Rotary Encouragement award due to the mature approach he continually shows towards all aspects of his learning. He has really extended and challenged himself this year, taking responsibility and ownership for his own development. Max is always thinking about how his actions may affect others, developing into a fine role model for our school and community. Well done Max!
