Renovation Underway

The renovation work of classroom teaching block 2 is now underway.   This work is expected to be completed prior to our return in 2019.  The external area between teaching block 3 and the computer hub will not start until the holiday break.  It is also expected to be completed by our return in 2019.   Students are reminded that they need to stay outside the fenced area to ensure they are safe at all times.  We are looking forward to watching the progress of these projects over the next few weeks.

Beachmere Remembrance Day Bowls

On Saturday 10 November, our school staff entered a team into the Beachmere Remembrance Day Barefoot Bowls Competition.  We were lucky enough to be playing against some very talented Beachmere Bowls Club members who took time out to explain the rules and key points of the game with us.  Although we were given some great expert tips, it was obvious we still need a lot of practice!  We had a wonderful morning and would like to thank Bill and Linda Powell and the Beachmere Bowls Club for inviting us to be part of this great community event.  

Beachmere Remembrance Day Service

Beachmere State School observed Remembrance Day on Monday 12 November.  We hosted a very solemn and respectful ceremony in our school which was attended by dignitaries, students, staff, local community and parents.  I would like to recognise the exceptional behaviour of all students who attended the ceremony.  It was great to see them show such respect throughout the service.   Well done to our School Captains Willow, Brock and Kyanna for leading this service.  I would also like to thank Gabby for running the PowerPoint, our school choir who sang beautifully and Mrs Knight for organising the service.   On behalf of Beachmere State School I would also like to extend a special thank you to Mr Dick Bird, Sub-branch Member and School Liaison Person, for his ongoing support and assistance! 

 


 

 

 

 

 

Student Leadership 2019

The process for the selection of our student leaders is well underway with our year 5 students. Our School Captain Nominees participated in the interview process on Tuesday.  The nominees were shortlisted after their interviews by the panel.  These Shortlisted Candidates will present speeches next Friday 23 November at 8.30am in our school hall.  Parents and community members are welcome to attend.  House Captain Elections will be held the following Friday 30 November.  The announcement of the successful candidates for key leadership positions will be made in the final week of this term.

P & C Meeting

Our next P & C Meeting is scheduled for Tuesday 20 November.  The meeting will be held in our staff room at 4pm.  All parents and community members are welcome to attend. 

Academic Awards Ceremony

Our end of year Academic Awards Ceremony will be held on Wednesday 12 December.  The event will commence at 9am in our school hall.  Students who have achieved the highest results in English, Maths, Science, History, The Arts, PE and other learning areas will be presented with special certificates of achievement.  All parents and community members are welcome to attend.

Year 6 Graduation

This Year 6 Graduation will be held on Wednesday 12 December from 6pm – 8.30pm in our hall.  This will be a great night to celebrate the primary school journey and achievements of our year 6 students.  If you have a child graduating, please ensure you have completed your attendance details and handed it into the office. 

Prep Student Enrolment Applications

Our Prep cohort for 2019 is growing strongly.  We are still taking enrolments for the 2019 year.   Enrolment packs can be collected from our school office for any interested parents.  Our Prep Transition Program only has 1 week left.  Our final session will be held next Wednesday (week 7) from 9am to 10am.   Should you require further information please contact our friendly office staff on 5433 9222.

Class Allocations 2018:

In the next few weeks, teachers will be undertaking a range of planning activities as we look toward 2019. One of these activities will be the allocation of students to classes. Parents who have a specific request regarding the ‘type’ of teacher they feel their child needs in 2019, e.g. “I’d like a teacher who will extend student x in Maths” or “I request a teacher who will help student y in her reading” are asked to put their request in writing.  We make a student’s class allocation based upon the needs of the student and the teacher who will best support that student. So, if you have a request for a type of teacher, please put your request in writing, addressed to me and marked “Private and Confidential”, then drop it in to the office.  Any request that identifies a particular teacher cannot be considered, so please ensure that if you put a request in, it is about the type of teacher, not a specific person. 

All decisions will be based on ensuring we maximise the learning opportunities for all students.

Leaving us in 2019? If your child will not be returning to Beachmere State School next year, please notify the office and your child’s teacher as soon as possible so we can be as accurate as possible with class formations.

Attendance is the Key to Learning

It is great to see so many classes hitting 90% or greater in attendance during week 5.  Well done to 2LM, 3A and 5/6B for reaching higher than our target of 93%.  Let’s try hard to keep these great attendance results occurring all the way through Term 4!  I have included below a student attendance overview per class from last week for your reference. 

 

 Yours in Education

SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT AGENDA – WRITING

One of our School Improvement areas is Writing. Some of our teachers recently attended “Seven Steps to Writing Success” professional development. The professional development examined how to use a seven step writing process to engage students and improve writing skills. Our teachers have also visited other schools to examine what approaches they are using to improve student writing outcomes.

BEACHMERE COMMUNITY REMEMBRANCE DAY SERVICE

Our Student Leaders attended the Beachmere Community Remembrance Day Service on Sunday 11th November. The leaders were responsible for raising the flags during the service and laying a wreath on behalf of Beachmere SS. Thank you to Kyanna, Brock and Willow for representing our school and Mr Bird for providing our Student Leaders the opportunity to participate in the service.
