To acknowledge and celebrate the importance of extended families in children’s learning, next Thursday 28th May, we are having an ‘Open House’ for grandparents, aunts, uncles and senior members of our community. (This is not to be confused with our Year 1 cohort’s History activities with their grandparents.)

From 9:00 – 11:00, we invite our very special family and community members to our great school to view the wonderful learning that is happening within the many, vibrant walls of our classrooms. A guided tour plus some interaction with a selection of our classes in planned, finishing with a morning tea.

Please meet at the Learning Innovation Centre (the L.I.C.), the building located to the right as you enter through the front gates.

If you would like to attend, please email Lee Griffith at lgrif37@eq.edu.au.

We look forward to sharing the learning at Bounty with you. If you cannot come this time, we look forward to inviting you at a later date.

We are delighted to invite all Bounty Boulevard State School students to join in the 2015 Premier’s Reading Challenge.

As well as being fun, the challenge aims to boost children’s literacy skills by encouraging students to read widely for pleasure and learning, to develop their imagination, and to cultivate a passion for literature.

Last year, more than 108,000 students and 700 Queensland schools registered in the program. More than 77,500 students successfully completed the challenge reading 1.65 million books.

The reading period for the 2015 Premier’s Reading Challenge commences on Tuesday 19 May and closes Friday 28 August.

This year, the Premier has challenged all state and non-state school students from Prep to Year 2 to read or experience 20 books, Years 3 and 4 to read 20 books and Years 5 to 9 to read 15 books.

Prep to Year 2 students can experience books through shared reading, listening to stories or reading picture books. The aim for the 2015 challenge is to reach a total of two million books read statewide.

All classes have now been registered and students are asked to record their Book-a-Night readings in the normal way, as well as on the Premier’s Reading Challenge record sheet which will be issued at school on Tuesday, 19th May.

If you are an avid reader, you can access the pdf to print extras at home with the following link:

Every student who completes the challenge will receive a Certificate of Achievement signed by the Premier and all students receive a Certificate of Participation. It will be a pleasure to present these certificates during the Premier’s Reading Challenge Celebration Weeks to be held 9 – 20 November 2015.
