The first weeks of Term 2 at Rainbow Beach State School are extremely busy with Anzac Day, Cross Country, Leaders’ Badge Presentation (8.30am, May 3), NAPLAN (May 14-16)  and Athletics.

A new P&C Committee

The Rainbow Beach State School P&C AGM was a very successful night with a new executive committee formed. I thank the executive committee from 2018 and welcome our new committee members: President – Jed Elmer, Vice President – Kirstie Jordison, Secretary – Tyla Elmer and Treasurer – Martine Lokan. We look forward to a successful 2019.

Year 6 Camp

Last month, the year sixes travelled south, to Tallebudgera camp, and participated in a range of difficult team building activities.

During the week, we had scary challenges like high ropes and zip lines, which went over an abundance of wildlife including crocodiles, emus, kangaroos, bush turkeys and water dragons.

Each day was classified into a hero theme – Warrior hero, Mastermind hero, Guardian hero and Champion hero – and had a range of activities to match with the characteristics of these hero types.

I was a Mastermind and enjoyed Escape Rooms, which were three rooms that have clues scattered across them, and you have to use the clues to escape in a time limit.

On the contrary, Rubi was a Guardian hero and enjoyed team games that included everyone.

She enjoyed informing everyone about dinosaurs on Guardian day. The camp food was amazing as well as the night activities like movies, dancing, karaoke and a magic show. I’m sure all the year sixes enjoyed this camp thoroughly.
