Term 1 Week 11
Dear Parents, Carers and Students,
Our school is represented each year in the Coolangatta ANZAC Day march at 10.00am on 25th April. Please advise office by phone, email or letter if your child is attending the march so that we can provide organisers with catering arrangements.
Thanks to all families who returned the P&C Easter raffle tickets for the draw that was held on Monday 7th April. Thanks to fundraising coordinator Sharon Bright for her wonderful effort in organising such great prizes – 69 in all (see over page for a list of donors) - and to the fundraising committee helpers Adele Marshall, Trisha Barry, Brenda Luxton and Sandy Walker for assisting with wrapping of prizes last week. The raffle raised in excess of $5000 for the P&C – a great result.
FAMILY OCCUPATION AND EDUCATION INDEX (FOEI)
Part of our school funding is based on the FOEI index which is linked to school education, non-school qualification and occupation information provided by parents. Any missing information impacts on the funds we receive. The percentage of missing family information in each category for our school currently is: school education information (7%); non-school qualification (19%) and occupation group (16%). All families were sent “missing parental background information” forms last week and if you think your family information under the above categories may be missing or has changed eg from employed to unemployed, could you please complete and return.
