Community News & Events
At assembly last Friday our first annual House Championship was awarded. Over the course of the year, students have earned points for their house through working hard in class, participating in school events and doing things to make our school a better place to work and play. I am pleased to announce that Kattie House was our winner for 2014. The competition was very close and I would like to congratulate all our students for their house spirit over the year. Next Wednesday, our houses will be rewarded with a fun day to celebrate their achievements. Kattie House, as a special reward, will have an excursion to Milne Bay pool. I will send home a note with details of these events later this week.
This Thursday is our Swimming Carnival and given the current heat, some time in the pool sounds like a good idea. I wish all our swimmers the very best for the day. Our Year 6 and 7 students will continue this watery theme with their graduation excursion to Wet'n'Wild on Friday. I'm sure they will have a blast.
Next Monday is a very big day for our school as we celebrate Christmas with our annual Carols Night. The evening will commence at 5:30 pm and we ask that all students meet their teachers in front of the stage at 6:45 pm to prepare for the show. This event is always a great night and I hope to see you there!
Our annual Christmas Concert will be held on Monday, 1 December. The evening commences at 5:30pm with the P&F BBQ and stall. Santa will be making an appearance at approx. 6:15pm. Our Christmas Concert will run from 7pm until 8pm. We look forward to seeing you there.
Minnie Vinnies Christmas Appeal- Wow! What a wonderful week! $180 in total. Thanks to all the fantastic contributors!! So far we have raised over $400 with one week to go. Let's keep filling those stockings as the Minnie Vinnies say “Nobody should be sad at Christmas!”
FROM THE LIBRARY
We would like to thank our dedicated Mums who graciously help in the library, week in and week out, providing take home readers to our students: Lauren, Tina, Sharon, Jo & Janelle. We really appreciate the effort made by the teachers and students throughout 2014.
