Term 4 Week 1
Dear Parents, Carers and Students,
We have had several diagnosed cases of Rotavirus this term. Please see the attached information sheet titled “Rotavirus infection - symptoms, treatment and prevention”. NB: all students 7 years of age and under would be immunised however those over 7 years may not be.
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE FOLLOWING:
- Spelling bee: We recently had four students compete in the Regional Spelling Bee Competition – Zac W 3/4S, Mercedes 3/4F, Charlie 6T, Elijah 6C
- Txt4U: A group of senior students have been engaged in writing articles for the local newspaper The GC Bulletin throughout the year. Congratulations to each of them for their dedication throughout the year.
- A group of students have been attending art lessons at lunchtimes with Mrs Corby throughout term 2 and 3. Some of them displayed their artworks at this week’s assembly and all will be bringing home their work in coming days.
2015 KINDY INFORMATION NIGHT
This Wednesday at 6:00 pm we are holding our Kindergarten Orientation evening for parents of enrolled students for 2015. The purpose of this evening is to give all the necessary information, dates and times to enable a smooth transition to school next year. While all families with students enrolling in Kindergarten at Banora Point Primary School in 2015 are welcome to attend this meeting, it will be particularly relevant to families who are new to our school.
VOLUNTEER & VISITOR SIGN-ON
A new sign-on procedure for all volunteers & visitors has been established in our office foyer. This is in the form of a touch screen lap top computer and printer which will print the name of the volunteer / visitor on a stick-on label. All volunteers / visitors are required to sign-in and sign-out at the foyer – including uniform and canteen volunteers. The new process precludes the need to involve office staff in the sign-on sign-out process.
