Congratulations School leaders!

Rainbow Beach State School student leaders were presented their badges by Tony Perrett on April 27.

  • School Captains are Tia and Luxie
  • Fraser Sports Captains are Mason and Laila
  • Cooloola Sports Captains are Max and Jasper

All leaders attended a leadership day in Gympie where they developed leadership skills by working in groups, challenging themselves and demonstrating resilience and persistence.

The cross country was held last term in between the rain. All students participated and put in massive efforts. The points difference between the two houses was just nine points, Fraser won.

Some students will now participate in the District Cross Country in Gympie on May 8.

Titch, Miss Turner and Miss Topalov guided Year 5/6 students to help plant seeds for the class garden and dig up some yummy sweet potatoes - they found more than 60!

20 Year Fair/ Back to School Day

We are hoping to hold a 20 Year Fair/ Back to School Day in Term 4.

As part of this special event, we are putting together a recipe book. We are asking students and staff, past and present, their families and community members to send in recipes for inclusion. These recipes can be emailed to: tcb20yr@outlook.com

Please include your name and phone number in case we have to contact you regarding your recipe.

NAPLAN time

Week 5 is NAPLAN testing for Years 3, 5, 7 and 9. NAPLAN is a vital tool in assessing how students are progressing, how our educational programs are working and where we can improve.

More students participating in NAPLAN gives us more accurate information so we can make better decisions. NAPLAN is not a pass or fail test, so students should be encouraged to simply do their best.

They should not feel stressed or pressured to perform as the tests are based on the skills they are expected to have at a given age and stage of their education. Encourage students to participate because every student counts!

All students are expected to attend school, whether they are participating in the NAPLAN tests or not. For more information parents are encouraged to visit the Education Queensland Website.
