Our staff respects the uniqueness and dignity of each child and base teaching/learning programs on sound educational theory and practise. Set amid pockets of natural bushland and native gardens, our modern buildings and facilities offer an attractive and welcoming learning environment for children P-7.
SCHOOL SWIMMING CARNIVAL
Congratulations to the school community on a great effort at yesterday's swimming carnival at Cleveland Aquatic Centre. It was great to see families turn out in numbers to support their children. Congratulations to staff who organised the day and supervised the children. Most importantly, congratulations to our children who participated in the spirit of the event. Well done.
Grevillia (Red) was the eventual winner of the overall trophy. It's great to see the houses share the trophy award over the years. Banksia (green) and Grevillia (red) tied for the boys' trophy and Grevillia won the girls' trophy. Thanks to year 6 Grevillia leaders – Courtney, Evelyn and Bailey for accepting the trophy in good spirit. Once again thanks to one and all who were involved for their efforts and support for the day. We now look forward to the Catholic Schools Carnival which takes place in just a few weeks' time.
Congratulations to our year 6 students who participated in the Kokoda themed challenge at Mt Coot-tha last week. Thanks to the instructors from Character Builders for guiding the students. It was very pleasing to see the children facing challenges together. It was also a good opportunity for staff to work with students in a different educational setting. Thanks to all who made the day a success. We now look forward to the outdoor education program in week 8.
A big thank you to the small group of parents who supported the Bunnings BBQ on the weekend. It's great to have an opportunity to fundraise beyond the school community and once again a dedicated group of parents turned out to support and promote the school the school. Also another event not to be missed is the Bogan Bingo gathering to be held on Friday evening! It's excellent entertainment provided by a professional comedic act and lots of fun and laughs are assured. Tables and groups of parents and friends are encouraged to get together and enjoy a social evening of fun and entertainment.
PREP 2016 ENROLMENT PROCESS
It's that time of year again when the school community begins to look ahead to 2016. For parents with children eligible for Prep it's never too early to begin the process of enrolment. If 2015 is any indication, numbers for Prep in 2016 will again be healthy and we urge families to collect an Application for Enrolment form from the school office as soon as possible to secure a place on our lists. Forms are due back by Friday 6 March, 2015. Parents are also encouraged to spread the word about our excellent prep program. The future of our school depends on our outreach to new families who are looking for a suitable educational setting for their children.
