FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S DESK

Eisteddfod Success

On Tuesday, the TPS Infants Choir took part in the Tamworth Eisteddfod at the Tamworth Town Hall.

The singers sounded amazing with their rendition of 'When We Were Kids' by John Williamson. Congratulations to Mrs. Palmer, Mr. Molesworth, and the TPS Choir for placing second. A great achievement.

Debating this week

This week the TPS Debating Teams have been competing across a number of schools in the Tamworth Eisteddfod Debating Competition. Tuesday saw debaters from Timbumburi visit our school,Wednesday was a trip to St Nicholas School and Thursday our debaters headed to Nemingha. Thank you to Mrs Wilkinson for all her organisation and coaching of our debating teams.

Rugby Union Win

On Tuesday, the TPS Rugby Union Team took part in the Tamworth area Rugby Union Gala Day. With much skill and determination, the team won both their games to become the North West semi-final champions. Congratulations to Mr. Martin and the team and best of luck in the next round.

Regional Chess Competition

Also on Tuesday, Tamworth Public hosted the Regional Chess Competition. Over 200 students from a variety of schools attended the event, expertly run by Mrs. Tanya Wilson. Congratulations to our chess teams who went close to winning on the day but were beaten by Timbumburi. Well done to all our chess players.

Winter has hit

Winter has certainly come to Tamworth with frosty mornings and cold winds. Please make sure your child comes to school prepared for the cold weather with jumpers, jackets and track pants. We have had a number of students turning up on cold mornings dressed inappropriately for the cold weather. Please make sure clothing is clearly labelled. If you have any donations of winter uniforms for

the clothing pool, that would be greatly appreciated.

Kindy has a visit from Mrs. Carr

Kindergarten students at Tamworth Public School have been learning about what school was like back in the day. A beloved former TPS teacher, Mrs. Carr, visited the Kindergarten students and gave insight on how school was at Tamworth Public School when she was little and when she taught at TPS. The students were captivated by her stories and had lots of questions. Thank you to Mrs. Carr for taking the time to share your stories.
