Well Done Primary Students and Families
In an age when we sometimes wonder if society even cares about others, we were thrilled to see the response from our Primary College Community as the donations of items for (a) RSPCA (b) Foodbank for needy families and (c) toiletries for homeless youths in the Sunshine Coast area have come flooding in from students and our College families over the past 2-3 weeks. How refreshing to know that kindness and generosity are alive and well in our GCCC community! Thank you so much for opening your hearts to the needs of these organisations. We appreciate all the donations to support this Student Council initiative. Thank you so much also to Mrs Mitchell and the Student Council Representatives for the organisation “behind the scenes” which has made this such a success.
The Biggest Morning Tea was also another demonstration of the heart of our College community as Mandy Ward and a wonderful group of mums and friends provided a beautiful assortment of delicious cakes and slices for the Biggest Morning Tea to support Cancer Research. Coffee and cake – like a serious coffee lounge – right on our doorstep in the Junior Undercover Area! Staff were so appreciative of this service (delivery right to the classrooms) that they have expressed a desire for this to be a regular event! We are so grateful to all those who blessed us all with their baking and coffee making for this worthy cause last Thursday.
Finally, if you were at the College last Friday you would have been so impressed with our Year 2 students cooking, painting, fishing and having a great time on rotations as they participated in a culminating dress up activity for their Super Heroes theme. There were some students and teachers, whom I could hardly recognise, but I could see the joy on their faces as they participated in the excitement of all the activities. Congratulations Mrs Leary on organising such a wonderful day and thank you to all staff and parents who made this day such a great success.
Enjoy a wonderful holiday with your family and a time of refreshing – but remember the Spelling Bee in Week 2 Term 3! Students received the words for their level this week. Primary Reports will posted out in the holidays.
