Yesterday we held our second International Exchange for 2019 with Anglican Church Grammar School (Churchie), who played Medbury in Basketball, Football and Rugby.
Thank you to our Medbury parents who have opened their homes and billeted players from TSS and Churchie. Your generosity is greatly appreciated and this social interaction between host boys and billets certainly adds to the Exchange experience.
Thank you to the Medbury community for showing your support for the Medbury Under 12 Basketball, Football and Rugby teams last week during the exchange with The Southport School (Queensland). We were proud to host the school and show our visitors first hand our wonderful Medbury community spirit. Our boys greatly enjoyed the games rich in skill, passion and sportsmanship, together with the comradery and friendships formed.
Thank you to the wider Medbury community for your support of last Friday’s whole school World Vision 40 Hour Famine Bush and Back Activity Day. We are hopeful of reaching our target of $20,000 and know the positive impact this will have on the children of South Sudan. Here is the link should you wish to donate:
The highly anticipated annual 'Breakfast with the Boys' on 24 May was once again a huge success. Thank you to our guest speaker John Quinn for his inspirational message and to the Medbury Parents' Association for another outstanding 'sell-out' event.
On 21 May students from Medbury School and Selwyn House School came together for a combined Music Workshop. This was followed by a Concert for parents from both schools in the evening. Well done to all of the students involved for their collaboration and performances.
Medbury was a hive of activity on Saturday 18 May as the School hosted the Club Rugby Day, which saw games played on The Medbury Green and Fendalton Park. Thank you to all the parents, staff and boys who helped out at the BBQ station throughout the morning. Your generosity of spirit, especially on a cold morning, was greatly appreciated.
It was beautiful crisp Autumn morning for the Medbury School Cross Country at Fendalton Park on 14 May. Boys from Year 1 through to Year 8 participated and there was a large crowd of friends and family to support them. Well done boys!
The Medbury Service of Remembrance was held on 5 May 2019 at The Medbury Centre.
"At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them."
Throughout this week the boys have experienced a wide variety of The Arts including African drumming, dance roulette, Neil Shaskey drawing classes, sand sculptures, Shona Clarkson pottery classes, musical performances, theatresports, busking, pavement art, mask day, Brendan Dooley magic, parades, solo performances and concerts.
The Swimming Exhibition at the Medbury School Swimming Pool yesterday was an opportunity for our Years 1 and 2 boys to showcase their learning and swimming skills to parents, grandparents and friends who joined us at this fun-filled event.
Yesterday we held our Numeracy and Literacy Open Morning and Parent Information Session. Our aim was to showcase the progression of our Numeracy and Literacy programmes throughout the School.
