Some of the Tin Can Bay Year 4 students enjoying their fun in the sun
Students at Tin Can Bay School enjoyed a day of multi-coloured fun last month. With the official Athletics Carnival cancelled in term two due to Covid, students and staff across the whole school were excited to be able to enjoy a sporting fun day together with lots of ‘out of the box’ activities.
Pool noodle relays, obstacle course, water challenges, long jump and frisbee and vortex throwing were among the list.
Students were still able to score points for Tuncun and Wallu in the hope that they would be victorious. Participation was high and the points were close, with the winner being… WALLU with 1566 points!
Tuncun put in an awesome effort and ended close behind with 1550 points. Congratulations to everyone for a wonderful day.
Welcoming our 2021 Preppies!
Ms Searl and Prep A students have been busy helping our 2021 preppies become familiar with their classroom and its set-up ready for next year.
Prep Transition afternoons are super important in reducing the anxiety some students feel when beginning school in a new and unfamiliar environment.
Our current prep students love being the ‘older helpers,’ showing where different toys and resources are kept and how to use them, different classroom routines and how much fun school and learning can be.
If your child is starting school next year, please give the school a call and arrange a time to come in and meet our prep teacher, Stacey Searl, check out the classroom and playground space and sign up for the transition afternoons. We look forward to meeting you soon!
Three teams of Tin Can Bay students took on the challenge of the Queensland Volleyball titles, held on the Gold Coast last month.
Students competed hard against many other, much larger schools. Their hard work and commitment to training paid off, with all teams having great matches.
The Year 8 Girls team were a stand out, clearly winning their division and bringing home the trophy!
Luxie-Leigh (Co-Captain), Keira (Co-Captain), Chloe-Anna, Janae, Jade, Ocean and Laney were overwhelmed with excitement and proudly showed off their medals to the rest of the school.
Keira also won Most Valuable Player of the Tournament. The girls loved the experiences and challenges they faced throughout the weekend; winning every set they played, being able to hang out together, make new friends and compete against so many other teams, including the gun server from Meridan State College!
The girls would like to say ‘thank you!’ to the more than 60 supporters who were there for the final to cheer them on.
Also a big thanks to the teachers who came along and organised everything for them – Mr D. Arthur, Mr T. Arthur, Mrs Masri and Mrs Kirby, and volunteers Mrs Arthur and Paul. Also a ‘cheers’ to Mr D Arthur for coaching them throughout the year and helping them to come such a long way.
