Bounty Bite – Important Information For Last Week Of Term 4

by Bounty Bite Staff , Yvette, Glenys and Sarah

To our Bounty Bite Customers,

This year all lunch orders for the last week of school for Term 4 must be ordered via Flexi Schools no later than 8.45am by Friday the 5th of December 2014.

This means that you will need to order on flexi-schools the week before for the final week. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause our families, but due to the café being closed for 6 weeks over the Christmas Holidays we are wanting to reduce any wastage and to better manage our stock over the holiday period. This will also help us ensure your children receive what they have ordered, rather than having to replace certain items with an alternative.

To encourage you to place a preorder for the last week, the Café is offering the class with the most preorders an ice block each on the last day of school.

Should you have any concerns or questions please do not hesitate to contact us in the café between 8am and 3 pm Monday to Friday.

Yr 5-7 Interschool Sport Friday 21 November

A reminder that our second interschool sport gala day for this semester is this Friday 21 November. Your child’s permission note, medical form and payment were handed in last term, so there is no need to complete another permission note. On Friday, students will need to be at school by 8.45am and will need to be wearing their sports uniform and have a filled waterbottle (preferably 2), a packed lunch, a hat and sunscreen. It’s encouraged that students playing futsal wear dark football socks, preferably navy socks. Futsal players must wear shin pads. The venues are as follows:

  • Softball – Woodside Playing Fields
  • Futsal – Pine Rivers United Football Club, Samsonvale Road
  • League Tag – Bears RLC, Mathieson Park, Petrie
  • Cricket – Inside Sportz, Strathpine

Year 5-7 students not participating in interschool sport will remain at school and be supervised by year 5-7 teachers.

Parents are more than welcome to come and cheer on our athletes.

Year 5 Leadership

Last week, 30 students from year 5 presented their leadership speeches to staff and peers. This year students interested in School or Vice Captain, Student Leader or House Captain positions committed to a rigorous process. The process involved obtaining an accreditation certificate, then a panel interview with Miss Wilson, Mr Isele and Ms Male and lastly being selected to present their speech.

This year the caliber of speeches was extremely high and every student who presented their speech is to be commended on a job well done! CONGRATULATIONS to all students involved in this process, you have all shown tremendous leadership qualities!

Captains will be announced on a whole school assembly, on Monday the 24th November 2014 at 2pm in the Hall. Family members are welcome to attend this assembly.

A big thank you must go out to Miss Wilson for her tireless efforts in organising and managing the leadership process and to Mr Hackwood for organising and overseeing the speech development workshops, as well as supporting the students in their leadership journey. Thank you!

 

It’s a school day – Friday 14 November

After a few general enquiries about schools and the G20, please note that it is a normal  school day at Bounty Boulevard State School on Friday 14 November. We look forward to all students attending school on this day.
