Preschool National Accreditation Naomi Stapleton, our Preschool Director, has also just completed a further three days training in Sydney recently. Naomi has been learning of the changes being made to the administration, management and teaching programs required to meet the new accreditation standards for preschools. This involves a huge amount of work and some very significant changes that challenge old-school perceptions and teaching philosophies. We do, however, know that we will end up with an early learning centre that will equip children for a seamless transition into kindergarten. I would like to thank Naomi and her team for their professional commitment and hard work. Hoping to meet you at the P&C Meeting The June P&C meeting is to be held this Wednesday in the staffroom. The meeting will start at 7:00pm but I will take the opportunity to meet some of our active parents before the meeting from 6:30 pm. Cross Country and Athletics Last week we saw the successful running of the District Cross Country event and our school Athletics Carnival. Thank you to all staff who contributed to these carnivals and to the parents who were able to attend to support their children. Congratulations to all of the children who participated and to those who were successful on the day. Denis Anderson Principal
First Aid Professional learning is an expectation of all staff. There is a constant need for teachers, support staff and our school administration personnel to stay abreast of new sets of knowledge and skills necessary to perform their duties effectively. Very often, this professional learning is consistent with our school management plan. We share Regional, and State driven goals when setting our school targets. These targets are best achieved at our school when the focus is placed on experiencing models of best practice and expanding our knowledge base and experiences. Many of the changes being undertaken have a National input to produce transparency and consistency in what we achieve. We are about catering for the needs of our students, diminishing the gap between our higher and lower performing students and raising the overall standard into the proficiency bands in National assessments. Technology is changing the face of teaching and learning as is the case of new business, management reforms being introduced by the Department of Education and Communities. I am amazed at the dedication of our staff. Currently, the majority of our staff is engaged in a 16 hour course to maintain our accredited qualifications in First Aid. The certificate issued will satisfy WorkCover requirements. This is aimed at the overall welfare, safety and wellbeing of our students. The qualification will remain valid for three years.
Exceptional learning opportunities for all

On Thursday 31stMay, Wellington Public School held its Annual Athletics Carnival. A great day was had by all and the weather was reasonably good to us.
I would like to thank Mrs Kate Boland and Mrs Loretta Brien for all their hard work with the computer. Also thanks to Mrs Tracy Petrovic for doing all the field event trials at school. A big thank you to our school Canteen and P&C who pro-vided yummy food all day.
I would also like to give my personal thanks to the small number of parents who were willing to give up their time to help at the carnival with judging, starting, timekeeping etc. We appreciate positive parent involvement and the input you give helps with the smooth running of the day. To all the wonderful staff of WPS you were fantastic in your roles and without you the carnival would not be as successful as it is.
Congratulations to all the students of WPS who attended the carnival. Your behaviour and sports-manship was to be commended. Numbers were up on previous years and I’m sure they will continue to increase.
Well Done to Mitchell House who were overall winners of the carnival by twenty points. Oxley House were a close second. Evans was third and Sturt was fourth.. It just goes to show that entry points can make all the difference.
Our wonderful champions were outstanding on the day showing their athletic ability. The 2012 Ath-letic Age Champions are as follows:
Junior Boy – William Eather 11yrs Boy – Jarrad Scott Senior Boy – Cooper McGeorge
Junior Girl – Harriet Taylor 11yrs Girl - Elizabeth Eather Senior Girl – Bridget Campbell
Congratulations to all the ribbon receivers, the Age Champions and Mitchell house on their success.

PRIMARY SCHOOL WIN A THRILLER…
Last Monday the Open Rugby League Team travelled to Mudgee, to play the second round of the State Knock-out. Wellington had progressed after a strong win over Kandos. Mudgee are always strong and once again fielded a strong team, with big forwards and two very good backs. Welling-ton’s strength revolves around a strong defence and good ball movement. The game began with Mudgees’ big forwards trying to dominate, but very good tackling by Brock Naden , Keiran Hynch, Aaron Brydon, Alex Young, Caleb Budd and Nathan Budd prevented Mudgee from getting the ad-vantage.
In attack Wellington were well organised by Keiran Baker and were attacking Mudgee on the edge of the rucks. Play went from one end of the field to the other, until finally the big Mudgee prop crashed over—4.0 to Mudgee. Wellington replied with a fine try by Brock Naden after great passing created the chance to score 4—4. Mudgee had a purple patch scoring two good tries, one after a great run by their winger, who showed great pace 12—4 to Mudgee.
Well into the 2nd half the game was in the balance. Wellington’s strong defence was forcing mistakes and finally a great side-stepping saw Riley Blackhall score and a great conversion by Cooper McGeorge saw the score 12—10. Wellington’s backs were combining well with the forwards and an-other great run by Brock Naden saw Shelby Stanley score in the corner. Wellington were in front 14—12 with 5 minutes to go. The last 5 minutes were spent with Mudgee attacking the Wellington goal line and Wellington dropping the ball when they got it. However strong defence won the day.
This was a great game, extremely well refereed and could have gone either way, Brock Naden was outstanding in an excellent team performance. Coaches Johnno and Trent.
PSSA Rugby Gala Day 29th May On Tuesday 29th May the Wellington PS Rugby Squad travelled to Molong to participate in an ARU Gala day. With some of the Western selectors in attendance the boys were keen to show off some of their skills. The first match was against Molong CS. Both sides showed tenacity in defence with some great tackling from both sides. A half time score of nil all was testament to the great defence. Molong’s No 10 broke the deadlock in the second half posting the first try of the match. Molong posted two more tries to end the match with a 17- 0 win. The WPS teams were out-standing in defence but were unable to contain Molong’s fly half in a tiring defensive line.
The team regrouped in the best way possible with a 34-0 win over Cudgegong Valley PS. Outstanding performanc-es from Cooper McGeorge, Harry Taylor, Kieran Baker and Noah Cox set up the win. Brock Naden also showed plenty of versatility playing in the backline, giving the defensive line some headaches as well as making a few crunching tackles of his own. In the forwards Kyle Forgione added some bite to the clean out and Logan Conn tack-led himself to a standstill.
The final and defining match was against Parkes PS. The match was an outstanding display of running rugby from both sides. Wellington looked to have the match in their keeping with 3 first half tries, racing out to a 17-5 half time lead. Wellington struggled in the second half with injuries to 3 or 4 key players. Logan Conn required stitching after a nasty head clash which seemed to take the focus off the match. Parkes stormed home with 3 second half tries to win 22-17. Molong won the play-off match over Parkes to book a date with Narromine PS in the Western play off. DJ Hart showed that he could be a future star of the 15 man game doing some great work at the breakdown securing the ball on a number of occasions. Aaron Brydon was also impressive in all three matches.
Overall it was a pleasing effort from the team who showed excellent sportsmanship, great attitude and gave 100% on the field. All players who travelled were tremendous representatives of our school throughout the day. Thanks to the parents who travelled to cheer on the boys and to Mr Bullock for his help in the organisation and running of the day. Mr Conn
