Grade 3/4 AFL Gala Event

On Wednesday 20th June, 18 Bethal students attended the AFL Gala Event at Dallas Brooks Community Primary School. They participated in a round robin against other local schools. The students and families received a sausage in bread and a few prizes at the end of the event. Well done to Rami and Ascia who were each awarded a sportsmanship award!

Grade 5/6 AFL Gala Days

On Thursday 31st May, 14 girls, 15 boys, Monty, Mr Tran and Miss Monkcom attended the Broadmeadows District AFL Gala Days. It was the first time the district had held a girls AFL Gala Day and we were very happy to be involved. Both teams performed very well on the day and their courage was amazing. Well Done!



Students in Foundation through to grade 6 are participating in Tennis lessons during their weekly PE lesson for the first four weeks of term 4. Here are some photos from week 1, where the students were introduced to the FOREHAND!


In week 2 students were taught how to do a BACKHAND, and what the differences are between a forehand and backhand.


During week 3 the students were introduced to volleys, serving and doubles match play. Despite the unpleasant weather at times throughout the week, all grades got outside and did very well.


In week 4 we plan for students in Foundation to grade 2 to be introduced to mini matches, and for grade 3-6 students to participate in a class round robin!


Swimming 2017

Bethal will once again be offering swimming to all of our students this year. It is extremely important that children learn how to swim, as it will allow them to:

  • stay safe around water and act appropriately in emergencies
  • be fit and healthy
  • have fun with friends

Once again, Bethal Primary has worked hard to offer a great course at a low cost. For $90, your child will receive:

  • 7 x 45 minute swimming lessons with fully qualified instructors
  • Transportation by bus, to and from school to Broadmeadows Leisure Centre
  • Skills that will keep them safe around water for the rest of their life

Dates: The 8th, 9th, 10th, 13th, 14th, 15th and 16th of November 2017.

Students will be placed in three groups. The first group will be leaving school at 9am each morning and arriving back at 10.45am. The second group will be leaving school at 9.45am and arriving back at 11.30am. The third group will be leaving school 10.30am and arriving back at 12.15pm.

Please return your permission note to the office. We look forward to another successful year at swimming!

Rugby League Gala Day

On Friday 25th August selected students in grade 5 and 6 represented Bethal at the District Rugby League Gala Day. As we are still learning about Rugby League, it was a very full on day. The students skill level and knowledge of the game increased dramatically throughout the day, and I was very proud of their amazing ‘never give up’ attitude. Well done!
