Week 6

Last week saw our year 3 and year 5 students sitting the National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) tests. Students were focussed and generally very relaxed about the testing. Our teachers did a great job of preparing students as was clearly demonstrated in the way it was approached. Well done to all participating students as well as teachers. I will share our school’s results with you when we receive them, and parents/carers will receive their child’s individual report.
Term 2 is our busiest term of the year in terms of events and activities. Coming up this Friday (25 May) we will be celebrating Under Eight’s Week and YAF. All welcome. These events start at 12pm. The following Friday (1 June) is the junior school sports day – prep to year 3. On the following Friday (8 June) we will hold the senior school sports day – year 4 to year 6).  Trials were held for this last Friday. Thanks to Ms Caitlin Thompson our HPE teacher for organising and running this day so efficiently. Please come along and cheer your child on at the sports days. The canteen will be serving food and drinks.
Don’t forget our 20 year celebrations later this year. A school fete is being held on 15 September. This is being organised by our wonderful P & C Association. If you would like to contribute to ideas please come along to our next P & C meeting to be held in the school conference room at 6pm on Tuesday 29 May.  I am running the ‘Principal’s Kookaburra Competition’ where entrants design a kookaburra – this could be in the form of a sculpture, painting, poster, statue, craft, or any other creative idea that you can come up with. Open to all age groups. More information about this and the P & C is available on the Flagstone State School P & C Facebook page.
Please note that our school newsletter no longer exists. In keeping up with the times we will be posting all updated news on this website. Topical notices are also on our electronic noticeboard outside the school, and urgent notices will be communicated by way of a note home or text message.
