Super 8 Champions!

Well done to our combined Hawker / Quorn cricket team who travelled to Stirling North Primary School today and won the Super 8s Cricket carnival with an undefeated effort. The boys charged through to the final, winning each game by over 100 runs and continued this in the final where they scored another century margin win.

Each of the players got to captain, wicketkeep and open the batting, gaining a great experience. Many thanks to Amanda Hilder as teacher-coach, Allen McInnis as the umpire and coach and Sharon McInnis as scorer who all performed admirably on the hot day. It was a great atmosphere amongst the team who kept up a an enthusiastic approach all day long.

International Day for People with a Disability

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

On Monday Hawker Area School celebrated the International  Day of People with a Disability, inviting members of our community to participate. Our students from 2pm attended the Welcome to Country delivered by Karmela Coulthard and were addressed by Rebecca Neilson from Mission Australia in welcoming them to the afternoon and discussing and explaining the meaning of the day, which focused on inclusion. There were a large variety of activities available for the afternoon which was well attended by members of our community. Amongst the activities available were face painting (always popular), arts and crafts, a silent disco, a free sausage sizzle, access to information by the NDIS and Interact into Work and much more. Door prizes were drawn so some people went home with healthy extras!

Interact into Work had a booth at the afternoon, they are looking to provide services to people in our region, including the opportunity to employ local people in the support of people with disabilities. Information on Interact into work can be located in our front office.

Many thanks to Rebecca Neilson, the Community Engagement Local Area Coordinator for the Far North Region with Mission Australia, who coordinated the afternoon. For those in need of support Rebecca has a regular schedule visiting our school, being based in the library at these times. She can be located at neilsonr@missionaustralia.com.au. Finally a big thankyou to all involved, including Eric Brown and Ian Carpenter from the Flinders Ranges Council who provided the barbecue.
