We are excited to introduce Michelle Walker – our new teacher of The Arts for Tin Can Bay, Rainbow Beach, Kia Ora and Wolvi Schools!

Michelle said “I am excited to be joining each school as The Arts teacher, teaching media art, music, dance and drama. I am very passionate about teaching and I can’t wait to meet all of my prospective students at each of the schools.

“We will begin the year with media art – a fun way for all the students to gain skills that are important for our children as ‘digital citizens’ of the 21st century. I look forward to meeting all of the families that make up these great school communities!”

Michelle will be at Tin Can Bay School on Mondays and Tuesdays, Kia Ora and Wolvi on Wednesdays and Rainbow Beach School on Fridays.

Taipans take on the 2019 Australian Volleyball Schools Cup

In December 2019, two teams from Tin Can Bay P-10 State School took on the challenge of the Australian Volleyball Schools Cup (AVSC) held on the Gold Coast over eight days.

The competition was hotly contested by over 4000 students from around Australia and had teams from Year 7 to Year 12.

The first four days didn’t disappoint, with both teams winning a total of 9 out of 10 matches. This incredible result was made even more impressive considering that most of the girls were in Year 7, but playing in a Year 8 competition! Unfortunately both of the teams lost in the semi-finals in an upset.

Tin Can Bay School Volleyball has a culture of success and a tradition of hard work and commitment. The students are driven and we are proud of the training and effort they put in all year to get to the AVSC. Hopefully we can build on the success in 2020!

We would like to acknowledge the financial help given to the Taipans, our wonderful families, community members and Rainbow Beach businesses, with a special mention to the Rainbow Beach Sports and Recreation Club, which enabled all students to attend the event.

Earn and Learn resources delivered

There was much excited chatter on parade at the end of last year, with the delivery of the resources from the Woolworths Earn and Learn Sticker collection.

Students nudged each other, recognising the items they had helped their teachers select including footballs, robots, paint, puzzles, problem solving games and construction items. These resources will help to increase engagement and the joy of learning with many students!

Thank you to the whole community for your wonderful support when giving us and other local schools and learning centres your stickers!
