As of day 8 of the 2018 school year, Rainbow Beach State School’s enrolment numbers were 92. As our Prep/1 class has 26 students, I have decided to split the year ones from the preps on three mornings a week.

Mrs Margetts will teach the year ones, concentrating on reading, writing and number. Mrs Chamberlain will deliver the Prep curriculum on these mornings, before the preps and years ones join back together after morning tea.

This decision will allow our prep to year 3 students the best opportunity to reach their learning outcomes. We will re-assess this program at the end of semester one.

Thursday Breakfast and Fitness Club has had good numbers attending. Students have been put through their paces using a variety of aerobic fitness activities and games.

At the last parade of term on March 29, the Excellicans (pronounced Excell I Cans)  (Class 4/5) will put on a special performance to celebrate the term, plus the Easter raffle is drawn. So parents, tell the grandparents and aunties – we hope to see you there!

Vouchers earn Lego

We would like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to our community for saving your Woolworths vouchers during the Earn and Learn promotion.

Our school was able to purchase some new Lego which arrived last month and has caused great excitement amongst the children.

They really enjoy spending their lunch times in the library creating with Lego.

P&C needs a new treasurer

The “Annual General Meeting” (AGM) for the P&C is on March 14. This is where all the committee members are voted back in for the year. Treasurer Zaneta Fitzgerald will be resigning and hopes someone would put their hand up for the role.

Zaneta assures, “I will go through everything and teach you what needs to be done. It’s set up so that it doesn’t take a lot of your time.”

This year, President Kirstie Jordison says the P&C would like to build a database of community and parent volunteers.

In March alone, there’s a Welcome BBQ, Free Dress day for Saint Patrick’s Day, Easter Raffle (see the What’s On page), and of course Thursday Brekky and Fitness club are back up and running. A massive thank you to Sarah Booth, Annie Kingsley and Leanne Bosse. It would not be possible without them!

They say it would be lovely to see heaps of people at the AGM. At 2.45pm in the Staff Room. Ask Cate (school admin) in the office for directions.
