Flags and Graduation certificates from Mr Llew O’Brien
Rainbow Beach School by Principal Steve Bennett
While there is not much of the school term left to go, there is still much to do! We have all been extremely busy with our learning here at Rainbow Beach State School. Our students have demonstrated some great results this semester, with the support of their families and our wonderful staff. We are very proud of the achievements of our students.
This month our students have been helping groundsman Mr Michael White with our gardens. We were very fortunate to have some chip bark donated to the school, and ever since we have had a small army of students replenishing our garden beds. They have willingly sacrificed their lunchtimes to help and displayed a huge amount of school pride in the process.
The grounds are looking wonderful and this is largely due to the efforts of our Michael and our relief cleaner Mr Martin Picot. We are grateful for their efforts in keeping our school looking fantastic.
I would like to thank Bunnings in Gympie for their recent donation of trees for our gardens. After our P&C fundraising BBQ, the Bunnings Activities Officer, Elaine King, offered to assist with our plan for revamping our fruit and vegetable gardens. This resulted in a variety of citrus and fruit trees being donated to the school.
We were also privileged to have a visit from Mr Llew O’Brien, Federal Member for Wide Bay and Mr Tony Perrett LNP Member for Gympie.
We wrote to Mr O’Brien requesting his assistance with acquiring some flags in order to update our parade area. He was also able to provide us with some graduation certificates for our Year 6 students. We would like to acknowledge and thank both gentlemen for their ongoing support.
Merry Christmas everyone, have a safe and happy holiday and we look forward to seeing you all again in 2021!
