School started last week so drivers should be extra careful in school zones.

Vavenby Primary School doubled in population this year. There are 14 students enrolled from Kindergarten to Grade 3.

All the students were glad to be back. The teacher is Mrs. Clark and the teacher assistant is Ms Pigeon.

The Strong Start program began on Wednesday of the first week of school. The six Kindergarten students attended. There were no preschool children present. Nearly all of these students had been to Strong Start before and were very keen to come again. They thoroughly enjoyed getting into the usual routine of other years, of doing art and science, singing songs, and playing.

The first day their healthy snack consisted of a tablespoon of Cheerios that the children crushed and then ate. After recess they went into the school library. Leader Ms Amy handed out boom wackers and then ukeleles for the students to experiment with. Everyone had a good time.
