The new term brings a Brisbane Oktoberfest on October 13 and the Year 3 Geography Excursion to Norman Point.
Congratulations to Wyatt Lee who recently was a top ten finisher in the Queensland Short Course Swimming Championships. Wyatt dedicates many hours to his training program and yet manages to maintain an excellent academic record here at school.
Big Day Out
The first initiative of Student Voice was the a celebration for students in years 6 to 10 in recognition of their great work in making positive choices. At Big Day Out students participated in a range of free or low cost alternative activities.
Student Voice meet regularly to discuss school programs, learning activities and opportunities. The group has recently expanded to include younger students and will look at a similar activity for them next term.
Our school choir participated in a combined Gympie Region Primary School Choir event. Students workshopped with visiting conductors and learnt a variety of songs to perform in the Combined Regional Choir. The activity culminated in a public concert. Well done to our students!
Book Week Fancy Dress winners: Xanthe-Leigh Sheridan, Noah Duncan, a well camouflaged student, Logan Smith and Library Teacher Aide, Mrs Sue Dan
Tin Can Bay Students also participated in a range of activities to celebrate Book Week. Classrooms in the primary school displayed an outstanding range of student artwork and input in the ‘decorate a door’ competition using the theme of Australia.
The overall winner was 6B, whose classroom door was transformed into a window to the past with a view out to the Australian landscape. Impressive!
Reading activities were held each lunch time in the library, and students and staff dressed up as a book character.
Happy Holidays – see you all back Tuesday, October 4!
