Boy Captain

My name is Julian Baggett and I am very honoured to be Mudgee Public Schools 2018 Boy School Captain.

This school has taught me since I was in kindergarten. When I first started at
Mudgee Public I was greeted by a person that would be my buddy for the whole
year. He guided me through the times when I might have needed help. This year I
have two roles: One - being Mudgee Public School’s Boy Captain and the other
being the buddy for a boy that might be Mudgee Public’s next School Captain! So
it's my job to teach him the rules that we go by at Mudgee Public School.

I have represented Mudgee Public School in many different things; such as Rugby
Union, Swimming, Cross-Country and Cricket. I have been lucky enough to be SRC representative two times and House Vice-Captain for ‘Gladstone’. At Mudgee Public School we have what we call the Four Bees. They are the rules of the school. And include: Bee Respectful, Bee Responsible, Bee an Active Learner and Bee Safe. I have followed these since Kindergarten. I thank the Staff of Mudgee Public School, my peers and my family for making me what I am today! This year is going to be the best year I have had for a long time. I’m going to lead by example as the 2018, Boy School Captain and look forward to the responsibility given to me.

Girl Captain

My name is Miriam Halbisch and I am very grateful to be your 2018 school captain.

I have been at this school since year one and greatly enjoy the
friendliness and resources provided.

I have had so many opportunities here and have been able to
participate in: T.O.M. (tournament of minds), Debating, dance, band, biggest
morning tea and lots of amazing excursions!

The teachers have always supported me and helped me with my work.
I look eagerly toward being girl school captain for 2018!

Boy Vice Captain

My name is Wil Treeve and I am extremely grateful to be the 2018 School Vice Captain. Mudgee Public School has been my favourite school, because it is full of amazing opportunities and people; Including my buddy, who helped me through kindergarten and led me to be who I am  today.

I’ve represented MPS in a
lot of areas; including state rugby league, school cricket, band, school
shotput, soccer and athletics. In the past couple of years I have achieved a
lot. When I was in year 3, I was elected as the SRC rep for Term 2. I was
extremely happy. Two short years later I got to be the one, the only Vice
captain for the best house in the school. Of course that house is PERRY!!!!!  And
that leads to now, School Vice Captain.

I’d like to thank everybody
in this school; my teachers and my fellow students for helping me achieve the
honour of Vice Captain. (Oh, thanks to my parents!!). I am looking forward to a
great 2018!

Girl Vice Captain

My name is Breanna-Rose Conley and I’m extremely honoured to be Mudgee Public School Vice-captain for 2018. I have been in this school since kindergarten. I got on well with my buddy and she guided me through my first year. I will do the same for my buddy. I help whoever I can whenever I can. I love nature and setting a good example.

I have represented Mudgee Public School in many things; such as
choir, stage 2 dancing, Tournament of the Minds and athletics. I was Perry Vice
house Captain for 2017.

At Mudgee Public School there are 4 rules: Be Respectful, Be
Responsible, Be an Active learner and Be Safe. Mudgee Public School has many
opportunities from kindergarten to year 6. The staff here are wonderful: they
support and encourage all students.

I thank the staff, my parents and my peers for electing me and I
look forward to the year ahead.

House Captains


Young Leaders Day

On Sunday 11th March,  our school leaders travelled to Sydney for the annual Young Leaders Day. Our students heard presentations from speakers such as John Coutis and Harrison Craig about what it means to be a leader and how they can contribute to their school community. Thank you to Mr McDonnell, Mrs Baddock and Mrs Roberts who accompanied our students to Sydney.

SRC Fundraiser Term 4

Term Four SRC decided to raise money for the Glenn McGrath Foundation this term. In order to raise funds, students were to wear pink to school for the day and bring a gold coin donation. All students and teachers got into the spirit and donned pink for the day. Overall, the students raised $932.50 for the McGrath Foundation. Mrs Warner and Mrs Kelly prepared cupcakes for teachers’ morning tea and accepted donations, which took the total to over $1000 for the day.


Well done and thank you to the MPS community for making the fundraiser such a success.

SRC Fundraiser Term 3

The SRC held their fundraiser for this term in the form of a cake stall. The proceeds were to go towards Dog Rescue Mudgee, a local voluntary organisation that helps find new homes for lost and unwanted dogs around Mudgee.


A huge thanks to all the students and parents who baked some amazing treats and for the students who supported the cause by buying and eating the lovely treats. We raised $532.45 in total, which went towards helping with veterinary bills.

Superhero Day

Term 2 SRC decided this term to fundraise for Bear Cottage, an initiative at Westmead Hospital that provides services for terminally ill children and their family in sick children’s final stages of life.

The students made a goal of $700 and went about organising Superhero Day where students could come dressed as a superhero and bring a gold coin donation. There was also a jellybean guessing competition run throughout the term, which also provided some extra funds to go towards our goal.

Finally, we set up a fundraising page where people were able to make donations and we received over $250 from generous individuals.

The day was a huge success with all types of superheros coming to school for the day. Mrs Stubbs from the canteen generously provided cupcakes towards fundraising and Mudgee Public School SRC were able to raise $1068.78 for the awesome people at Bear Cottage.

The SRC would like to thank everyone for throwing their support behind such a wonderful cause.
