2018 SCHOOL LEADERS
The Year 5 students have prepared their speeches and are keen to present them with the wider school community tomorrow morning at 8:45am in the Performing Arts Hall. Parents are most welcome to attend! Following the speeches, the Year 5 students will vote for 2 candidates for school captain and 2 candidates for their
prospective houses. Following this process, the votes are tallied and presented to the staff, (who do not have a relative who is a candidate), on Thursday afternoon and staff each have a vote. The 2018 school leaders are announced during the end of school year liturgy on Thursday 30 November at 9:00am in the church.
END OF TERM POOL PARTY
There will be a whole school pool party at the town pool next Tuesday, 28th November from 12:00pm until the conclusion of the school day. Students who have consistently followed school behaviour expectations this term are eligible to attend. Students will walk to the pool at 11:45am and will need to be collected from the pool at 2:40pm. Pool entry is free and students will need to bring their lunch, togs, swim shirt, towel and sunscreen. Parents of children not eligible to attend will be advised this week.
END OF SCHOOL YEAR LITURGY
With only 7 school days remaining……we invite everyone to our End of School Year Liturgy and Celebration of all we have to be thankful for on Thursday, 30th November at 9:00am in the church. Following the liturgy, we will have a shared morning tea in the eating area at school. We ask that all families bring a plate to share. Just a reminder that we are a nut free school. If you are taking your child at the conclusion of the liturgy or morning tea, please sign him/her out in the school office. Students who remain at school will watch movies for the remainder of the school day.
TWILIGHT SWIMMING CARNIVAL
Our Swimming Carnival will be held on Friday 24th November. Firstly, I would like to thank all the parents who volunteered for timekeeping – we had lots of responses which is just fantastic! This week's newsletter includes a list of timekeepers and ‘reserves’ – people able to fill in if people timekeeping need a break.
Also included in the newsletter is the program for the carnival – you will notice that every child competing has an event and heat number, as well as an assigned lane. This will make marshalling a lot easier for our teachers and will hopefully enable our carnival to run smoothly and on time. The program has been finalised and no changes can be made. If your child is unable to compete on the night, please let us know as soon as you can.
Programs will be available on the night from the recorders tent. Please ensure your child listens to marshalling announcements. We will not be waiting for late arrivals to marshalling. A huge thank you needs to go to the Charleville Swimming Club, for lending us their timing system, as well as financing the software upgrade needed, (along with our school and Charleville State School), to ensure we have the smoothest possible carnival. Thank you to Brad Lines for helping us to learn how to use the software and overseeing the software on the night. We also need to thank Nadonna Schouten for being our starter and the fantastic Mrs Lyn Capewell for judging/ chiefing on the night.
Just a reminder that students are to be picked up from school at 12:00pm and we will meet back at the pool at 3:30 for a
4:00pm start. . Dinner will be available from 5:00pm with all money raised going to the Yr 6 2018 Canberra Camp. There will be hotdogs and sausages on bread available. Hotdogs are $4 each, and a sausage on bread is $3. The carnival will conclude by 8:00pm. Thank-you to everyone who has offered to help at this event. We have been inundated with offers! Look forward to seeing you all there!
At our last P and F meeting it was decided that the school will take over the running of the tuckshop in 2018. A new tuckshop menu will come out early next year. As this is a contract position from year to year, we are calling for expressions of interest for the 2018 Tuckshop Convenor. This position is 7 paid hours each week and involves all the ordering, preparing and selling of food as well as ensuring the tuckshop is clean. If you are interested in this position, please email your expression of interest outlining any previous experience in the hospitality industry to email@example.com by 5:00pm on Monday, 27th November. Many thanks to Leannda who with such dedication to the role has very efficiently run the tuckshop this year. Thanks Leannda!
