Term 3 Week 3

Dear Parents, Carers and Students,

EDUCATION WEEK

This week is Education Week with our school Education Week Assembly at 9.00am and Open Day occurring on Thursday 31st July. All families have received an Education Week flyer outlining the full range of events this week. This includes the Byron Bay Writers Festival at Murwillumbah on Tuesday and our annual Book Fair which is set up in the library and the opportunity for families to visit classrooms after the whole school assembly finishes at 10.30am

SEMESTER 1 ATTENDANCE AWARDS

Congratulations to the 272 students who received excellent attendance (2 days maximum) or outstanding attendance (0 days absent) in semester 1 at Monday’s assembly.

CONGRATULATIONS TO:

  • Senior band students Alisa, Brodie-Lee, Ella and Talulah who have been selected to take part in the annual Creative Arts Camp at Lennox Head this week - a great opportunity to showcase their talents and work with other talented musicians from our area. Look out for a photo in next week’s newsletter.
  • Girl’s and boy’s touch football teams for their great efforts at the gala day yesterday – the boys won the first round but lost their second to Kingscliff in a close nail-biting 5-4 result. The girls lost their first round but went on to win their 2 consolation games in fine style. Mr Wilkinson and Mrs McArthur send a huge thank you to the parents who supported our teams yesterday.
  • The AFL team who travelled to Coffs Harbour last week to play Toormina PS winning 11-6-73 to 5-6-36 to become North Coast champions. This was a great achievement after a four hour bus trip. They will now play a home game against Bateau Bay PS in the state quarter finals with the winning team travelling to Sydney for the state finals on Monday week 7.

Dear Parents, Carers and Students,

SCHOOL FACILITIES UPGRADE

We are pleased to advise that after a long period of construction the new girls’ toilet block and walkway will be completed prior to the beginning of next term. This will be a great addition to our school. The block of eight girls and three female staff toilets will replace the two existing demountable toilet blocks which will be removed from our site in coming weeks. Thanks to all staff and students for their patience during this construction period- in particular the five teachers and classes who have endured the brunt of the inconvenience and noise – 1S, 1 / 2 D, 1W, 2M and 2D.
