Around the school: 6 June 2014

6/06/2014

​Fit and Active

Due to next Monday (09/06/14) being a Public Holiday, the children will get a makeup day next term.

Keep an eye out for the date.

School Disco

Due to the scheduled school concert, our school disco will be held on Thursday, July 24

Library open times

Our Library will now be opening on Thursday and Friday mornings from 8.30 am. Parents and students are welcome to visit for reading and sharing of books. Borrowing will still occur during class times. Thank you to Miss Rae Ross, Mrs Janet Fletcher and Mrs Narelle Hoelzl for making themselves available during these times.

Welcome

Welcome to some new faces around the school! Mandy O’Conner will be working in our P-1 classrooms, providing some additional support to these teachers on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays until the end of term. Jenny Glynn is also joining us a teacher aide in our P-1 classrooms on Mondays and Tuesdays, also until the end of term.

Bon Voyage to Mr Darren Waugh, who is taking some well-earned, Long Service Leave as of Tuesday June 10.  Welcome to Ms Susan Forrest, who will be replacing Darren for the final three weeks of term.  Susan is very familiar with the school, having completed a number of relief days in our Prep classrooms previously.

Music

Congratulations to Mr Colin McIntyre and our Band who received a Bronze at Fanfare on Friday! If you missed the performance, please join us for our school concert on Thursday June 19 at 6 pm. Along with our band, you will hear our Junior Choir, Senior Choir and Instrumental Music students play also.

Biggest Morning Tea

Congratulations also to our student leaders, who raised over $700 for the cancer Council last Thursday as part of the Biggest Morning Tea! This was a mammoth effort.  Huge thanks to the parents who baked and donated goods for the students to sell.

Communication – who do I contact?

Sometimes it is difficult to know who to contact when you have a question or concern. So the Parent Resources page: Parent Resources , has been updated with the most recent information. Please have a read of the page.

Newsletter

Next semester, we will be transferring to a fortnightly newsletter. As we now send electronic newsletters, update our website every Friday, and utilise the QSchools app, Twitter and Facebook to keep in touch, parents are now even more informed than ever about what is going on in our school. On the “off” newsletter weeks, there will still be updates to the QSchools app, website, Facebook and Twitter, so parents will continue to know about what is going on in our school.  A fortnightly newsletter will also ensure that our staff spend more time focusing on student learning, rather than on editing and publishing.  If have a smart phone or android phone, make sure you download the QSchools app today for free from iTunes or Google Play stores.
