A thank you to the parents/carers who have nominated to volunteer with assisting at the school stalls at the upcoming Twilight Market on the 8 November . The online form has been updated to display the volunteer spots still available at each stall. We would greatly welcome your support to volunteer for this significant P&C fundraising event.
Lions Recycle for Sight Australia Inc is part of the Lions Clubs International Worldwide Eyeglass Recycling Program, headquartered in Queensland and operating throughout Australia and overseas.
Recycle 4 Sight Australia has collected thousands of pairs of used spectacles, sunglasses, new frames and other equipment. The program distributes re-graded spectacles to many parts of the world to Lions Clubs, Rotary Clubs and other humanitarian organisations for distribution to poor people in need at no expense or obligation on the recipient.
Over the 15 years that the Australian program has existed, the program has delivered 2.5 million pairs to countries in Africa, Europe, Middle East, Indian Sub-continent, East Asia, and the Far East, including China, the countries of the Pacific Rim and Southern Asia and Oceania.
Bounty Boulevard State School alongside the Lions Club North Lakes is proud to support this worthwhile cause. Over the next month we will be asking the school community to collect and drop off used spectacles. These can be placed in the Drop Off Your Used Spectacles Box, located in the front office until 3:00pm, Friday 28 November 2014.

Dear Parents / Carers,
On 29 October 2014 Artslink Queensland, will present The Crazy Scientist Strikes Back at Bounty Boulevard State School.
The Crazy Scientist Strikes Back
An interactive live performance about the weather, environmental change and planet Earth.
May the forecast be with you! Richard Scholes is back with some of the most exciting experiments from Crazy Science and H2Whoa! Plus new earth-shattering, lightning striking experiments that will change the way students see and feel the weather. Students will be let loose in a science lab where discovering the mysteries of planet earth and the weather are a top priority. The crazy scientist has devised some of the world’s wackiest experiments to explore the inner workings of the sun, cyclones, rain and clouds. But he needs some clever assistants to help him uncover the answers…Students will be drawn into the world of crazy science as they become part of the experiments and assist Richard as he brings the power of the weather into the classroom.
Crazy Science: The Crazy Scientist Strikes Back is a visual, messy, larger than life look at the way our wild world works.

on behalf of the Student Affairs Ministry
The Twilight Markets are coming up and the Student Affairs Ministry will be running a cupcake stall, along with a lucky dip stall. We would appreciate if you could donate some ingredients for the cupcakes (flour, sugar, eggs, lollies, etc.) and small toys or trinkets for the lucky dip. All money raised during the evening will go towards the Royal Flying Doctors mental health unit and the Country Women’s Association in Winton as it is the sister city of the Morton Bay Regional Council.
Anyone can donate ingredients, and anyone can try their luck on the lucky dip or have a taste of our delicious cupcakes. The event is being held at Bounty, on Saturday 8th of November. Please leave your donations with your classroom teacher. They will be collected by the student affairs ministry. The donations need to be brought in by Wednesday the 5th of November.
Thank you for helping.
