The Coopernook Rural Fire Brigade will hold an open day on September 22.

The fire station will be open from 10am-3pm for community members to go along and meet their local fire fighters and discuss with them about the possibility of becoming a member of the brigade.

Information about keeping safe in the event of a fire will also be featured, with a free information pack on how residents can protect property from the upcoming fire season will be available.

There will be fun things for the children to do, including water games and a slip and slide.

School news

Lansdowne School gave a big thank you to the Lansdowne Uniting Church Fellowship for a very generous donation of $1000 to assist with the cost of their intensive swimming scheme in term four.

This donation assists with the cost of the bus to take students to the pool each day.

Swimming lessons will commence on Monday, November 26.

The Lansdowne School has been very fortunate to borrow a robotics kit from the Department of Education STEM Share Robotics Program for term four.

This kit will give the students the opportunity to use a variety of educational robotic resources for the term.

There are robots suitable for each stage in the kit.

Students will learn how to code the robots and engage in STEM challenges.
