Clubs & Activities

Student Council
Students are elected by their peers to represent the views and ideas of the student body. They meet regularly as a group to put these views and ideas to the leaders of our school. Fundraising  is an important role of the council; funds raised contribute towards a charity organisation as well as the funding of extra curricular activities such as lunchtime clubs. The student council is made up of students from grades 4, 5 and 6.

Makerspace

Makerspace for 2018 will be starting in week 6. Children from year 3 will be first, with our challenge to build a Roller Coaster that would support a marble or ping-pong ball. Makerspace gives students a chance to think critically, creatively and collaboratively. This activity will run before school on a Thursday, in the library lab from 8am - 8:35am and then the children will also come back at first break after eating to continue on their design.

There is no cost involved however children may need to collect items from home to bring in. Places are limited to 20 students so they will be spread out between the year 3 classes. Please speak with your child to see if they are interested and prepared to commit to coming.  

We will be starting Thursday the 1st of March at 8am.

Email Joy King jking79@eq.edu.au your child's name and class.

Reader's Cup
Readers Cup is organised by the Qld Branch of the Children's Book Council of Australia. It generally takes place in term three each year.  It is a state wide competition for young readers. Teams of four students together read a set of books, and then compete with other school or public library teams to answer quiz questions from the books.

Readers Cup competitions challenge students to read widely, work collaboratively in a team and continue developing a love of reading. It allows readers to compete at a regional and state level similar to sporting competitions and to meet other students with an equal passion for books.
