We welcome new Principal Steve Bennett back to Rainbow Beach
You may have heard there is a new principal at Rainbow Beach State School! My name is Steve Bennett and I am thrilled to be joining the team at the school in 2020.
Some of you may recognise me around town. I was fortunate enough to teach at Rainbow Beach State School in 2012-13 before commencing my career as a principal at Thargomindah State School in far South Western Queensland.
Most recently, I was the principal of Miles State School on the Western Downs for three and a half years. After six years in the outback, I am delighted to return with my wife, Simone, and children, Sonny and Libby, to lead the team at Rainbow Beach State School.
My focus this year is to enable our fantastic staff to continue their great work, ensuring all students have every opportunity to succeed. I look forward to actively engaging with our local community and beyond, to provide our students with exciting learning opportunities.
An example of one of the exciting initiatives at Rainbow Beach State School is the new KindylinQ program.
Rainbow Beach State School is one of only 25 schools chosen in Queensland to host KindyLinQ in 2020. KindyLinQ is an early learning program for three- and four-year-old children who attend with a parent/caregiver.
KindyLinQ is play-based and aims to support children’s learning, development and engagement prior to starting school. KindyLinQ sessions will commence at Rainbow Beach State School library on Tuesday February 25.
The KindyLinQ sessions will be every Tuesday and Wednesday from 9am to 12noon and are provided free of charge.
Our school has been busy acquiring new resources for this wonderful new program. The KindyLinQ sessions will be run by RBSS teacher, Libby Margetts, and Early Years Support Co-ordinator, Sarah Brantz.
If you have any questions or are excited to be a part of KindyLinQ please contact Rainbow Beach State School.
We are very excited and can’t wait to bring KindyLinQ to our wonderful community of Rainbow Beach, Cooloola Cove and Tin Can Bay!
