MPS Role-Model Success

Millthorpe Public School has been selected as a NSW Department of Education, School Success Model Ambassador School.

This is prestigious recognition of the dynamic student success which the school drives.

The teachers, students and the wider school community are warmly congratulated.

In a year when the school is to commence a major, expansive building program, it will be more important than ever to support the staff and students as they deal with the inevitable disruption a building program brings.

The first information session was held on Thursday March 11.


Local artists are grateful to the Millthorpe Artists Group which has booked the Pioneers Gallery for an Exhibition over the four days of the Easter Weekend.

The exhibition will be open for the same hours as the Museum, between 11am and 3 pm each day.

Volunteers gave their best at the working-bee on Wednesday March 17, giving the museum and grounds a much-needed 'Autumn - clean'.

Music for Our Ears

Millthorpe's own band of locals 'The Hip Replacements' are playing a free, ticketed, COVID safe concert in Blayney (Carrington Park) on Saturday March 27 from 3 - 7pm.

March Music Month is an initiative by Blayney and Cabonne Councils under the NSW Government's Festival of Place Summer Fund to bring the community together on a weekend afternoon and support local musical artists in a relaxed, casual setting.

Pros and Cons

The cancellation of the April Markets reminds us that, until vaccinations are widespread, erring on the side of caution is the preferred policy.

Good news for Club Millthorpe as the two well-groomed greens attract district bowlers, and On-the-Green Bistro reopens with a seasonal menu to please.

'Nanny State' apron strings are hopefully loosening to allow use of balconies on Pym Street beyond the 8.30pm regulation as reported previously in this column.

The disquiet and disappointment some residents are voicing at this regulation, and the lack of community consultation, is still being heard.

The peace and quiet, both by day and by night, is increasingly being broken by a chorus of barking dogs from the north-west corner of the village.

Dog owners need to be considerate, lest they be reminded of their responsibilities by the BSC Ranger.
