Cooloola concentrated hard in captain ball at the annual athletics carnival
by Micheal Grogan, Rainbow Beach State School Principal
I have been offered the opportunity to be Principal at Brisbane Central State School beginning in Term 3. This is an exciting opportunity for myself and our family, and we are looking forward to being closer to family and living in our family home.
We have enjoyed our time here at Rainbow Beach and I am very proud to have been the principal here over the last four years. I have been fortunate to have worked with such a great group of people, who come in every day doing their best to help the kids of Rainbow Beach get better every day.
This is a great school and one everyone in the Rainbow Beach Community should be extremely proud of!
I wish every family all the best and hope that every child continues to enjoy the exciting opportunities provided by this school.
Ms. Tina McColl will be Acting Principal for all of Term 3.
The following staffing changes have been made for Term 3:
- Mrs Lisa Bull will be working three days per week in the 3/4/5 classroom sharing the class with Ms McColl.
- Mr Walsh will be taking the 5/6 class full time.
These changes have been made to minimize the disruption to the school as a whole and the learning of the students in individual classes.
At this stage it is expected a permanent principal will be appointed for the start of Term 4.
Cooloola wins Athletics Carnival
Congratulations to all – age champs were:

Handball Competition winners
The Handball Competition came to an amazing conclusion with four fantastic finals and a great level of sportsmanship.
We saw Zoe defeat Ella in a close contest in the Junior Girls, and in the Junior Boys Alex defeated Callum in a see-sawing affair that finished 12-10 in the tightest contest of the day.
The Senior Girls saw Elva victorious over Laila, and Kaleb eventually emerged the victor over Clive with a series of low hard shots to every corner of the court in the Senior Boys.
