A Message from Ken and Lisa

End of Term 2

We have almost come to the end of another busy term. A lot has happened over the past 9 weeks; We started off the term celebrating Mother’s Day and our Prep students participated in a ‘Toys over Time’ incursion, our Year 3 and 5 students completed NAPLAN, our Year 5/6 students went to Phillip Island for camp, our Grade 1/2s participated in a ‘Craftpower’ incursion and swimming lessons, we recognised Reconciliation Week with Wear It Yellow day where $457.10 was raised for Children’s Ground. To celebrate Education Week, we had an Open Afternoon, our first one in our new buildings, and it was fantastic to see many current and past families exploring the new STEM rooms and engaging in activities with students, our Year 3/4s finished off their unit on Science with a Science Incursion, we had the official opening of our new buildings, completed semester reports for every student and are finishing off the term with a casual dress and crazy hair day fundraiser. What a busy term!

The last day of term will be this Friday 24th June. There will be an end of term assembly in the hall at 2:10pm, with students being dismissed at 2:30pm.

We wish all families a safe break and look forward to seeing you all back in Term 3.

Parent Teacher Interviews

Parent Teacher Interviews are being held on site in the first week of Term 3. Bookings are now open for appointments in Compass. If you would prefer to meet with your child’s teacher online, please book in a time through Compass and email the class teacher to set up the online meeting. Bookings will close at 9:00am Monday 11th July.

Former Bonbeach Student Oceania Champion

It is always fantastic to hear when former Bonbeach students experience success.

Noah Oliver is now the current under 20 Decathlon Oceania Champion! This is truly an amazing effort. Congratulations Noah and we look forward to hear about your future endeavours.

Construction Works

Some of you may have already noticed that there is a temporary fence around the veggie garden.

There will be workers here next term resurfacing the pathways around the garden in order to make them safer to use. They will also be replacing the ramps to the hall to make them compliant. This will not affect the running of the school too much, but it will cut down parking spots as the work site will be situated on the 4 parking spots closest to the Coast Banksia corner.

I apologise for the temporary inconvenience, but the long-term gain will be worth it.

Staffing and Illnesses

This is an unprecedented time for illnesses and absences of staff. It is almost impossible to get casual relief staff unless they are booked well in advance and, even then, they may not come. This is a state wide problem at the moment and will certainly continue next term. This has caused us to look at how we can cover the absence to minimise the disruption to classes. The 1st day a teacher is away, their class will be split into the other grades at that level. After that, the teacher will be replaced with either a casual relief teacher and, if there are none available, they will be replaced by one of the specialist teachers or Ms Roolker or Mr Jones.

School Beanies

Good news! The school uniform suppliers are now selling school beanies. These are in the school colours with the school logo on them. School Council have sited them and overwhelmingly approved them. They are now available to order.




National NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia in the first week of July each year (Sunday to Sunday), to celebrate and recognise the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC Week is an opportunity for all Australians to learn about First Nations cultures and histories and participate in celebrations of the oldest, continuous living cultures on earth.
