Parents, Carers and Students,
HALL OF FAME
Congratulations to all of our award recipients at our Hall of Fame ceremony we hosted on Monday night. A big thank you to Mrs Hilary Dance - Wilson for her organisation of the evening. Titans’ player, Morgan Boyle was our guest speaker who spoke to the student about talent alone isn’t enough and you have to be but you need to work hard for what you want in life and in sport. We are very fortunate to have so many opportunities for our students who are supported and encouraged by their parents and teachers. Well done to all of our students with a special mention to Jezebel, Zach and Evie who were inducted into our Hall of Fame for the representation at state level. Jezebel and Zach are part of the State Junior Wind Band while Evie is the fastest 9 year old in NSW in the 100m sprint.
PLANNING FOR 2017
Teachers have begun the process of class formation for 2017. If your child will not be attending Banora Point Primary School in 2017 please let us know as soon as possible. Kindergarten enrolments are being finalised as part of the Kindergarten transition program. If you have not yet enrolled your child or know someone who has not advised us, please contact the office so we can ensure their placement for next year.
THANK YOU TEACHERS
I am constantly impressed by the levels of dedication and commitment shown by our teachers. They are consistently going to great lengths to ensure student receive high quality education in a caring, supportive environment. At this time of year, we are investing a significant time in writing and proofreading student reports, organising end of year ceremonies and ensuring well informed transition procedures are in place for our students next year. We thank them for their continued professionalism and commitment.
A band recruitment session for Years 2 and 3 will take place on Thursday 1 December. Our band program is widely regarded. Students and parents interested on hearing more about our program are invited to an information session in the hall to hear more about the program.
