ORANGE SKY LAUNDRY SLEEP OUT
Students in company groups participated in 6 sleep out challenges to raise money for the not - for - profit organisation Orange Sky Laundry. During the sleep out students, in a controlled environment, experienced the difficulties and challenges faced by many of Australia’s homeless. A special thank you to Mrs Knight who gave up her comfy bed for the night to join us. Miss Brand and the students of 6A would also like to express our appreciation to the parents who helped with supervising the activities, preparing supper and cooking breakfast for us. Your support of 6A is very much appreciated. Thank you.
NET TEAM VISIT
Last week the Year 5 and 6 students worked with the National Evangalisation Team focusing on Leadership and Peer Pressure. Below are pictures of this engaging and special time.
FOSTERING A LOVE OF LEARNING
Our school believes that learning must be engaging and relevant to the needs of all of learners. If learning is not loved then success may be limited. We foster a love of learning by promoting authentic and meaningful learning experiences. In Prep A, students fine tune their literacy skills during morning rotations. They focus on practising letters and sounds, sight words and reading strategies with support from Mrs Chapman, Mrs Ambrey and parent volunteers.
PREP ENROLMENTS FOR 2018
Prep enrolments for 2018 are now open. If you have a child eligible for Prep in 2018, please leave your details with the school office. If you know of families/friends who have Prep age children and who might be interested in attending an enrolment interview, please advise them to contact the school.
HELP PRESEVE ST JOSEPH'S CATHEDRAL
Drakes now own the IGA in Biloela and are very willing to support the preservation of our beautiful St Joseph’s Cathedral in Rockhampton.
The Cathedral was recently renovated at a cost of 6.5 million dollars and it is very important for the building to be maintained. Drakes have offered to give one cent for every dollar you spend to the Cathedral Conservation Fund. This is an amazing and generous fundraiser and a huge community effort. All you have to do is simply accept a Community Dollars keytag and present it at any Drakes Supa Iga checkout when you shop – no cost to you and no cost to the Cathedral.
Keytags are available at the school office for a short time, as well as at the IGA. Be sure to give them out to your friends, family and work colleagues.
