Tin Can Bay School News January 2020

Tin Can Bay State School - ChoirTin Can Bay School Choir 

Our awesome Tin Can Bay School Choir has been working hard this year and, recently, were able to perform at some events at school and in the community. The students sang beautifully at our Remembrance Assembly, Awards Assemblies and our Christmas Assembly, with some of our young students performing solos for the first time!

Students also loved being able to share their songs with the local community, travelling to the Cooloola Waters Retirement Resort where we had a fun morning performing a range of songs for the residents, including a sing-a-long. Thank you for the delicious morning tea and chocolates!

We wish to thank Generation Gap and Cooloola Waters Retirement Resort, two of our wonderful local community groups for their support in donating to our choir. These funds enabled us to travel to venues to perform and share our love of singing.

Chappy Karen’s 2020 Wrap-up 

This year has been an interesting year for us all, but so much more for the students at Tin Can Bay P-10 State School. As the Chaplain in the school, I’m there as a listening ear for those students who may be feeling a little overwhelmed with all that is going on around them.

Throughout this year I have been busy with a range of programs and student supports, including Lunchtime Connect, Garden Club, Breakfast Club, and accompanying students on camps and excursions.

Lunchtime Connect is held during lunch breaks and is a time when students can come to play games, do crafts, play ping pong or just chill with their friends.

Monday mornings, myself along with Mrs Turner, run Garden Club in the school kitchen garden. Students enjoy planting seeds, watching them grow, looking after the plants, then harvesting and getting to try their produce. The lovely liquorice flavour of fennel is now a firm favourite!

Breakfast Club ran on Tuesday and Thursday mornings for all students who wanted to come and was a great success. This program could only have happened with the generous donations and fantastic support from local businesses and volunteers.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Tin Can Bay Bakery, IGA Tin Can Bay, Tin Can Bay Post Office, Tin Can Bay Country Club, Coastwide Engineering and the volunteers for their support over the last 12 months.

Farewell and Good Luck Year 10 

With all the challenges we faced this year, we were extremely proud and excited (tinged with sadness), to farewell our 2020 Year 10 students. A heartfelt assembly was held for the whole school to say goodbye, then a Valedictory Dinner for the Year 10 students, their families and their teachers. We wish our students all the best for the future as they move into Year 11, further education and the workforce.
