A poppy is a symbol of respect

No one is better at shooting than them

Zooming bullets through the thin air

Australia new zealand army corps fight together

Crawling soldiers on the  ground

Dug trenches to keep alive

A war keeps going on for ever

Yay it's over in 1918.

Hi, everyone. It's just about that time again! Colyton School starts on Tuesday 7th February. We will begin the day with a quick welcome back Assembly at 8.55am (outside, weather permitting). We have 11 new students and families we would especially like to welcome to Colyton School. Following the short Assembly, all parents/caregivers are invited to the staffroom for a cup of tea or coffee.

Enrolment Scheme

posted Dec 16, 2016, 2:24 PM by Colyton Principal   [ updated May 27, 2018, 1:40 AM by Google Administrator ]

An Enrolment Scheme Home Zone is a means of limiting the roll to prevent overcrowding at a school, and enables the Ministry of Education to make best use of the current accommodation at schools in the surrounding area.  Each enrolment scheme must contain a home zone with clearly defined boundaries. Students who live in the home zone have an absolute right to enrol at the school.  

Colyton School Board Of Trustees has determined that there are no places available for out of zone students in 2018.  Siblings of those out of zone students also have the right to enrol at Colyton School.  If places become available in other year groups, the Colyton School Board of Trustees will hold a ballot to decide placements. This will be advertised when available.

The zone is available for download for use with Google Earth:

Dogs are better than cats: By Holly Shortall

posted Aug 23, 2016, 3:40 PM by Colyton Principal

Dear Editor

I do not believe cats are better than dogs. I live at a house with 5 dogs and 1 cat. At our place the dogs are way more fun and I spend way more time with the dogs than I do with the cat.

When I get home from school the dogs run around the side of the house to welcome me home they are always excited to see me and want cuddles. When I walk inside the cat opens one eye and then goes back to sleep again.

At home we have a farm dog, her name is Bess. She moves all our sheep and bulls she also listens to all mums commands. Without Bess farm work would be tough. While Bess is working the cat is asleep in the sun on the couch.

Sometimes we take your dogs to the river. At the river they love to play in the sand, swim in the water and hunt possums. Our cat prefers to hang around home rather than go to the river.

Our dogs are way more exciting than our cat. I enjoy the dogs because I get to do lots of things with them. This is why I believe dogs are better than cats.
