A Fun Run on the Beach!

Running Club will be a good time to get ready for the Fun Run, followed up with a healthy brekky!

Running Club will be a good time to get ready for the Fun Run, followed up with a healthy brekky!

This year the Rainbow Beach Student Council has decided to organise a Fun Run! The adidas School Fun-Run  will be held on Monday, October 24 and will involve our whole school.

This is a sponsorship-based fundraiser, and we’re looking to raise $3000, so all help is appreciated!

The day will begin at school with all students participating in the Holt Bolt Kids obstacle event – a 300-400m obstacle course.

The kids will love the giant inflatable obstacles, a foam pit, scramble nets, a rock climbing wall over the back of a ute, spider’s web, a giant superman swiss ball pit, strength and agility challenges and heaps more!

Kids will also take part in team games such as laser tag, tug-o-war and team building activities.

The Fun Run starts at the Lifesaver’s Tower to Rainbow Shores and back. We will have two turnaround points on the run to allow students to run shorter distances if they need to.

We will finish our day with a BBQ at the beach.

The School Fun-Run promotes healthy and active lifestyles to our students in a fun and engaging way! It’s all about participation and we’re organising a great day for our school community.

Family support is key to our fundraising success and we encourage all students to be involved.

Keep your eyes peeled for the sponsorship forms which will be sent home with your child. Students who raise just $10 or more will receive a reward for effort. In the sponsorship form you will also find many other benefits, like the chance to win a Samsung Tablet, every week.

This healthy fundraiser help ensure all schools have a viable alternative to junk food fundraising. The event sends the right message to students about having fun while getting involved and being active.

We’re firm believers in the fact that exercise and nutrition are an important part of our students’ lives, both in the lead up to as well as after this event.

Thanks for supporting your child’s wellbeing and our school in raising money towards new technology for the school.

Pre-Prep classes commence

Children born between July 1, 2011 and  June 30, 2012 are eligible to start Prep in 2017. To assist with this transition we are holding Pre-Prep classes at the school each Thursday morning from October 6 till November 24. This is a great way to get your children familiar with the school environment before they actually start school.

Gympie Maths Team Challenge

Our 5 mathletes have done themselves and our school very proud, coming second overall in the small schools section and winning the team event. This is a fantastic effort competing against schools from all over the Gympie region. Well done Archie, Annie, Charlie, Bailey and Chase!


Our choir students travelled off to Gympie to participate in the Kidsing Choral workshop. They had a fantastic day and were part of a great combined choir performance at the Civic Centre that evening. I would like to thank Miss Eryn for organising this amazing opportunity and commend the students on their conduct, but especially on their attitude and active participation on the day.

Bling Your Helmet and Ride to School Day

It was great to see so many helmets decorated and the creativity on display was amazing. On the day Bernard from Cycling Qld visited us, judged the helmets and spoke about the importance of being safe on the roads while on our bikes.

Bernard also stressed the importance of a properly fitting helmet for children. It is vital that the straps of the helmet are tight enough that if someone actually needs it in a fall or accident, the helmet will stay on their head and protect the wearer as intended.

The next P&C Meeting is on 2.45pm, Thursday, October 13, at RBSS staff room. All welcome. Remember to buy your tickets for the Trivia Night and the Anniversary Dinner!
