Athletics Carnival 2017

ATHLETICS CARNIVAL SUCCESS
Last Friday, we held another successful Athletics carnival. It was a great day out, with some fantastic weather, excellent displays of sportsmanship and athletic talent. I would like to thank all of our students for their efforts on the day and welcoming the students from St Maria Goretti Inglewood. Furthermore an additional thanks to all of our parents who assisted with jobs on the day. Your assistance always makes the day run smoother. As I mentioned on Friday, a big thanks to the staff and students of Millmerran State P - 10 School for the use of their facilities. We appreciated the opportunity to conduct our carnival here. From this carnival, we have selected a team of 23 students from Year 3 to 6 to compete at the Gore Highway Athletics Trials. We wish them all the best.

Congratulations to all students for their performances last Friday at the athletics carnical. Well done to Evans for taking home the Interhouse Trophy.

Catholic Education Week will run from Sunday 23rd to 29th July. The theme for 2017 is 'Sharing the Journey'. On Wednesday 26th July at 2pm everyone is welcome to join us in Mass with Fr Thomas.

BISHOPS INSERVICE DAY
As part of Catholic Education Week staff will attend the Bishop's Inservice Day held at St Joseph's College in Toowoomba on Friday 28th July. Therefore the school will be closed on this day.

STAMPS
Please remember to collect your used postage stamps and send them in to school. The Church send them to Peru for charity. They are more valuable now as there is a shortage. Leave plenty of space around the stamp so as not to damage perforation.

2018 ENROLMENTS
If you have a child, or you know someone who has, starting Prep in 2018, please feel free to come in and take an enrolment package.

READING IMPROVEMENT STRATEGY
Over the next two terms and into next year, all teachers from Prep to Year 4 within the Toowoomba Catholic Diocese will be involved in the Reading Improvement Strategy. The aim of the strategy is to deliver consistent, high quality reading instruction in every classroom, across all schools, and to increase the capacity of classroom teachers to deliver quality teaching and learning of reading. Our teachers will spend time working with other teachers, Education officers and coaches in developing and improving their teaching of reading based on evidence based best practice. Some of the processes will be very familiar to our staff as we have spent time over the past few years in improving how we deliver reading instruction. Our staff will have access to coaching and mentoring throughout Term 3 & 4 and will work closely with our assigned coach to put skills into practice.

Parent involvement as always will be a key part to improving reading instruction. Parents can help out by scheduling regular 15 to 20 min reading sessions at home to reinforce the skills taught at school. Mrs Maree Twidale has access to some great parent handouts for supporting your child with home reading.
