The A/Principal's News

Published by Beachmere State School

Five weeks of Term 1 Completed:

With five weeks of the school year now behind us we are continuing to see great gains being made in all areas of student learning. With so much more to be done, please encourage your child to try their best in every activity that they participate in. I have high expectations of all students in all areas of their schooling and I trust that the remainder of Term 1 will be rewarding for them as they endeavour to “have the right Attitude, put in Effort to all learning and demonstrate Respect.”

Student Leaders’ Induction Ceremony

This year’s Student Leaders’ Induction Ceremony was held on Monday 27 February. Our School Captains, House Captains, Band Captain, Choir Captain, Flag Monitors and Student Council Representatives were presented with their badges and made their pledges of office.  Congratulations to all students who participated in this special event. You truly did your school and parents proud!

Principals’ Conference

Last week I had the pleasure of attending the Principals’ Conference in Brisbane. More than 1600 delegates, including state school principals and department representatives, attended the conference. We heard from many speakers from Australia and abroad. It was an excellent opportunity to hear about the great things happening in education. Tony Cook, the Director General of Department of Education, informed us that Queensland schools are improving student achievement better than any other state in Australia. This is definitely great news!

Halogen Young Leaders Day

On Friday 1st March our School Captains and House Captains attended the Halogen Young Leaders Day at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre. Students were able to listen to a variety of speakers including Olympic swimmer Cate Campbell, Disability advocate John Coutis and Cotton On General Manager Tim Diamond. Our Leaders had a great day learning how great leaders lead.

Vision Screening

Our Prep students will be participating in Vision screening on Tuesday 12th March.  This screening is funded by Queensland Health at no cost to parents/caregivers. The data from the vision screening will be provided to parents/caregivers.

Interschool Gala Sports Day

Beachmere SS will be competing in Inter-school Gala Days on Friday 8th and 15th March. Students will participate in Softball, Soccer and Rugby League. They will compete against other schools in the area. Good luck to our Beachmere SS teams.

School Leaders Forum

Our School Leaders will be attending a Leadership Forum on Tuesday 12th March at Pumicestone State School. Students will participate in team building activities with other school leaders from schools in the area.

 Year 5/6 Camp

Our Year 5 and 6 students will travelling to Mount Tamborine for a leadership camp from Wednesday 20th March to Friday 22nd March. Students will be involved in a number of activities including bush walking, archery, orienteering, glider possum and survivor challenge. The camp program requires students to practice the essential teamwork skills of communication, cooperation, participation and respect. The final payment for camp is to be made by Friday 8th March.

Cross Country 

This year’s Cross Country will be held on Friday 29th March (Week 9). Lap Challenge is on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 8am on the oval. This is an opportunity for students to train for the Cross Country. Ms Salter and Mrs Armstrong will running these sessions.

School Photos

Our school photos will be taken on Monday 1st April (Week 10). Payment envelopes will be distributed this week.

As  the photos are taken in the school hall, we will not have parade in Week 10.

 

Attendance is the Key to Learning

Research has proven that regular attendance at school is one of the most important factors to ensure student improvement in reading, writing and maths.  It is so very important that your child attends school every day. Our attendance target is 93%.  I have included below a student attendance overview per class from last week for your reference.  We have had an improvement in student attendance rates and would appreciate parents/caregivers continue to ensure that your child/children attend school every day and arrive at school on time for learning (8.25am at the latest). Please give your child the best possible start in life by ensuring he/she attends school regularly.

P&C News

Published by Beachmere State School

Our P&C members work tirelessly to benefit our students.The AGM is on Tuesday 19th March from 4-5pm in the staff room. There has been too few members doing too much for too long. Some of our  dedicated committee members no longer have students at the school and others are working full time.

It would be wonderful if we could have some new members to assist the team. Please come along and have an input into our wonderful school and make new friends along the way. Our meetings are friendly and informative.Without a P&C, fundraising would cease and so would the tuckshop.

Prep Vision Screening

Published by Beachmere State School

Prep Vision Screening

Good vision is important for a child’s educational, physical and social development. Vision screening is therefore vital in early childhood, particularly for conditions such as ‘lazy eye’, which if not detected early can lead to blindness.

A Registered Nurse will be visiting the school on Tuesday 12th March 2019 to commence vision screening for all Prep Year children.  If you wish to have your child participate in this free vision screening program, please complete and sign the consent form sent home with your child and return this to your child’s class teacher as soon as possible. You will be advised in writing of the outcome of your child’s screening.
