What an exciting final few weeks of term we had at Rainbow Beach State School: the performance Swag of Tales, our Athletics Carnival, the “army of helpers” and fun on Under 8s Day, report cards and the Annual Fishing Day at Inskip Point.
It is an exciting start for the third term with a visit from Costa Georgiadis of ABC Gardening Australia fame on July 11, followed by Book Week and the Small Schools Athletics Carnival.

Next term for Sporting Schools we will be offering free tennis lessons. The lessons will be split into two 4-week blocks for Prep-2 and 3-6. Numbers will be limited, so make sure you get your notes in as soon as possible for participation.
Important Cyber Safety Tips
The department has recently been alerted to random users contacting children through the social media app ‘Instagram’.
Help your children avoid random contact on social media:
- Know which social media your child uses
- Discuss with your child who their online friends and followers are. Only be friends with people online who you know and trust in the real world
- Take a proactive approach and establish clear and agreed rules for your child’s internet use.

$1000 donated to Kitchen Garden
The kitchen garden team had a fantastic surprise recently with a generous donation of $1,000, specifically for the garden, from a local person who wishes to remain anonymous.
They approached Liz Kilgower in Rainbow Beach Fruit after seeing an article in this paper.
Each class is creating a special project for the garden to commemorate the school’s 30 year anniversary. This money will go towards purchasing supplies to make the class projects a reality.
Mr Mileson’s Funlantis class were tasked with designing a specific section of the garden, creating an incredible array of 3-D designs showing what they would like to see included in the next stage of the garden.
Chappy Ronnie, Michael Donnelly, a landscape gardener now at Rainbow Getaway Holiday Apartments, local architect Walter Dobkins, who also brought along an Urban Planner and Engineer, all judged the Grade 3/4 competition. Winners were presented with prizes from Bunnings Gympie.
