Term 3 Week 7
URGENT ACCOMMODATION REQUIRED
One of our families is in urgent need of rental accommodation – please contact the Principal if you may be able to assist.
To Mrs Henderson for her great efforts as relieving Principal in my absence in the first half of this term and to Miss Trew for her role as relieving Deputy Principal. It is nice to be back amidst the many great opportunities our students are experiencing throughout term 3.
SASS RECOGNITION WEEK
Next week is designated SASS Recognition week. Our SASS (School Administration and Support Staff) are well-known to our community and provide great support to our staff, parents and students. These include our admin staff, teacher’s aides and General Assistant. On behalf of our community I thank them for their wonderful contribution to our school.
Our school public speaking finals were held last week. The speeches presented by the students were truly amazing, congratulations to all students, teachers and families for their support. The prize winners for each event are below. Each section winner – Talulah, Evie, and Jasmyn will represent our school at the district finals next week.
Congratulations to our school debating team; Talulah, Tia, Jett, Archie and Ruby and coach Mrs Cargill for their great performance in last week’s debating challenge against Woodburn PS where they won the debate titled “Beauty Pageants Should Be Banned”. They will now proceed to the next round of the competition in coming weeks.
GOLD COAST EISTEDDFOD
Our hard working band students participated in the Gold Coast Eisteddfod last week which was a great experience for them – Mrs Seckold was very proud of them. Thanks to Mrs Seckold for teaching our band so well and Miss Trew for her support.
Another outstanding recent achievement has been that of Talulah (that would be the trifecta for Talulah – debating, public speaking and state band!) who was chosen in the Junior State Wind Ensemble for public school students from throughout NSW. Talulah performed at the Sydney Opera House two weeks ago together with other talented musicians who were selected for this prestigious event. Congratulations Talulah.
All families received a flyer about Friday’s Carnivale on Monday. Should inclement weather require a postponement families will be advised via School Stream on Thursday – but we hope this will not be necessary.
Congratulations to the 45 students who received awards for perfect attendance in Semester 1 and to the 156 who were acknowledged for excellent attendance (two or less absences) at Monday’s assembly.
