Rainbow Beach State School P&C News
Melissa Spanton, P&C Secretary
Welcome back to Term 4! On reflection it has certainly been a busy year, with much planning and preparation going into building the Outside School Hours Care (OSHC).
There has also been a lot of fun with the mid-year Colour Fun Run, school excursions, and various creative stalls for the students. Next on the agenda for the P&C is the annual Christmas Raffle.
Much like last year, we have done the rounds and reached out to the community businesses in hopes for some support and donations towards the Christmas Raffle. We have yet again been overwhelmed by the generosity of the community and the families willing to support our P&C.
Prizes have all been collated and hamper packs put together, with the prizes reaching over $5,000 in value. Tickets have recently been distributed so no doubt you will soon see some of the students selling their tickets and be sure to keep a lookout for tickets being sold around town.
We would like to send out a huge thank you to all our sponsors for their wonderful generosity and we look forward to drawing the winners at our School Christmas Concert!
We are also pleased to announce that Tuckshop is back on this Term, and we would like to welcome Mrs Tina Yu, one of our Prep parents, who has kindly volunteered her time to deliver tuckshop to our students each week.
We are very happy to have Tina on board and would like to thank her for her support. Parents and students alike are excited to have the Tuckshop open yet again.

A Message from the Principal, Mr Steve Bennett
Our Police Beat fence, wonderfully painted by our current Year 6 students.
Police Beat Fence
As per tradition our current Year 6 students were invited to paint the Police Beat fence. We are very proud of the work they have been able to produce. These students have been working hard to ensure they are as best prepared as they can be, for high school next year.
Enrolments for 2024
We are busy making plans for 2024 and want to encourage any families planning to enrol their child in Kindy, Prep, or any other grade, to come and speak to us as soon as possible. This will allow us to consider class compositions and ensure we are ready to deliver best possible outcomes for your child.
We are already aware of several families relocating and want to thank them for keeping us abreast of their future plans.
The beautiful mosaic made by the school community in honour of the much-loved Miss Sarah.
Mosaic for Miss Sarah
Over the recent months, staff, students, families and friends have been busy putting together a Mosaic in honour of Miss Sarah. We are proud of the way the mosaic project turned out and we feel it is a fitting tribute to somebody that brought so much to our whole school community.
It was a great project that facilitated many happy conversations of our fondest memories. She continues to be sorely missed by all that were lucky enough to have known her.
