Congratulations to The Rainbow Beach Choir who came second at the 2019 Eisteddfod!

Principal, Dan Stanieg

It is great to see how an event can bring a school together no matter what the scale. Last week our choir participated in the Gympie Eisteddfod. Leading up to this event, Miss Eryn had been practising with the students on a Friday afternoon.

These practises were quality, but not the quality the students needed one week out from a competition. To my delight, it was some of the teachers at school that took it upon themselves to have practises before school, during school and after school.

The performance from our choir was magical and I had goosebumps the entire time they were singing. A massive congratulations to all our choir students for second place.

Book Week is one of my favourite weeks of the school year, especially the dress up day. This year the theme is ‘Dino-mite Stomp, Chomp, Read’ and ‘Reading is My Secret Power’. Dress up parade will be on Tuesday August 13 at 8.30am, so come along and join in the fun.

Thank you for your continued support.

Rainbow Beach School wins Sea Life Sleepover!

Rainbow Beach State School won SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast’s recent art competition by creating beautiful fish using recycled materials such as chip packets, straws and bottle tops. The students wanted to share the message that rubbish shouldn’t end up in the ocean.

We won an overnight underwater adventure at SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast where they celebrated the aquarium’s 30th birthday with party hats, cake and fun facts about all the amazing sea creatures!
