NAIDOC Visit to Glennie Heights Kindy

On Wednesday, two of our indigenous students, Kaysan Miles and Felicity Hodges, visited Glennie Heights Kindergarten as part of NAIDOC Week Celebrations.  Both girls were fantastic ambassadors for the school.  They shared first nation stories with the students, sang “Care for Country” and “Barramundi”, along with discussing with the students where their home is and how to care for the land. A wonderful learning experience for everyone involved.

Co-curricular Update

Senior Hockey Fixture Results

Our Senior Hockey Team won again on Tuesday evening with a 3-1 win against Blue. Lachlan Nolan and Rosalie Mauch showed they had benefitted greatly from their experience at State U13 and U18 Titles respectively demonstrating significant improvements in game play and general skills. Sam Bourke, in attack, and Emma Bradbury, in attack and defence, were excellent as always. Millie Groves was strong at centre half with excellent distribution in attack and composure in defence.

Next Monday training commences after school on the tennis courts for those interested in joining our Schools Cup Teams and for our Interschool competition.

P&F Update

P&F Meeting 19 July – Cancelled

The July P&F meeting has been cancelled.  Quite a few people from the P&F Committee have other school commitments so the next meeting will now be in August.  Hope to see you then.

 

Colour Run – Prep to Year 7 (Change of Clothes)

The final colour run day will held next week (22 July).  It is recommended that students bring along a change of clothes and a white shirt is suggested so as to enjoy the bright colour that the students will be quickly wearing. The powder is made from nontoxic food colouring, so it can stain.

Thank you to all the students who participated in the fundraising, which closed on 2 July.  A total of $5,309.87 was raised and the highest fundraising class was Year 3 – congratulations to that class and all other students.

Parent and Visitor sign in

With the developing COVID-19 situation and increasing requirements around contact tracing, we have introduced a QR code system that enables visitors to our campuses to sign in electronically.

This new system applies to visitors and contractors, and we are also asking parents to sign in and out if they are campus for any reason other than dropping off and picking up their children. These arrangements will apply if parents are on campus to meet with a teacher or other member of staff or if they are spending time in the classroom.
