School News


Wow, what a great day the Cross Country runners had on Tuesday 2nd of May. The sun was shining and it was a glorious day.

We travelled to Mason’s Lane Reserve in Bacchus Marsh to compete against the other Melton Schools.

24 students were selected to represent Thornhill Park at our very first Interschool Event.

The students were exceptionally well behaved and they did the school proud, showing the school values of Integrity and Persistence. 3km was a long way to run!

There were approximately 18 schools competing with close to 400 students. We competed in Division one of the Melton Primary Schools Sports and finished 8th in Division 1. There were 10 schools in our division.

We had a bit of success with Skyla winning the U10 girls race. Simon finished 7th in the U11 Boys and Chiqueeta finished 10th in the U11 girls. These three students will progress to the next level and compete at the Division Championships. They will be competing on Thursday 25th May back at Mason’s Lane, we wish them every success and I am sure they will do our school proud.

Congratulations to all the students who made the team. You all should be very proud of your efforts.

After asking our students to come up with a name, Rian in Year 3/4 came up with the chosen response.  Ripwell is a name created through a combination of our school values.

R is for Respect.

I is for Integrity.

P is for Persistence.

Well is for Wellbeing.

Well done to Rian for creating history and helping to give our mascot an identity.  He was also very proud and brave when he presented the new name of our mascot to the community during our last assembly of the term.
