From The Principal

29/03/2018
On Monday I had the sheer delight of accompanying some of our Year 5 and 6 students up to the Aged Care facility so they could perform some verse speaking, piano playing, singing and also a recorder performance. The residents were thrilled with our student performances, commenting a number of times how talented they were. They performed with such confidence and enthusiasm. Thank you again to Mrs Isabelle Watson for organising this performance with Kevin Smith.

 

Ski Trip Fundraising Update

Last Saturday we had the privilege of working with the Springsure Golf Club in hosting a     fun-filled ambrose golf event. The golf club allowed the ski trip parents to run raffles and a BBQ with the proceeds coming back to the school for the ski trip. We also received 50% of the nomination fees.  In total we raised over $1800 for the ski trip families which is just fantastic! I would like to thank Michelle Smith, Peter Spencer, Sue Priddle, Tim Burns, Rose Lucke and Melissa Williams for helping me on the day, your assistance did not go unnoticed.  Thank you also to Pam and Robyna for donating some of our BBQ items.  It was wonderful to see some of our students and parents playing on the day also.

Our Easter raffle was drawn this morning with the three winners being Sharon Wagner, Riley Bridgeman and Scott Gale. Congratulations! Thank you again to our secondary parents for donating the Easter items and selling so many tickets and to our wonderful community for supporting us.  We raised in excess of $1000. It was an excellent team effort.

Our next Ski Trip Fundraiser is the upcoming Campdraft next weekend. Mrs Sue Priddle is co-ordinating this event. If you are cooking or serving on the day, please ensure you make contact with Sue in regards to further details of what is required. Next term, we have been given the Senior Rugby League bar for two home games. This will be another $800 for the ski trip kitty. Closer to the time, we will be calling on some volunteers to assist in serving behind the bar.

Staffing update- Term Two

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our staff, parents and community members for offering their support and well wishes whilst I was absent for my mother’s surgery. Next term, I will be taking the first two and a half weeks as long service leave as we are travelling to New Zealand for a family wedding.  Both Maria and Tim will be acting as Principal and Head of Curriculum during this time. Mrs Rose Lucke and Ms Toni Upton are also on long service leave for the first week of the term. Thank you Tina Briggs and Tracey Roberts for assisting us in Prep and Year Six. 

 

I wish you all a safe and restful holiday.
