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.

Dance Troupe

Dance Troupe is offered each Thursday and Friday morning, and by our talented year 4 teacher, Mrs Rachel Pugh, who once owned a dance centre, and supported by our inspirational and enthusiastic year 3 teachers Mrs Suzanne Wicht and Miss Connie Laidlaw. Dance Troupe is available to students from year 2 to year 6.  We enjoy regular performances on assemblies and special school functions and events.

For more information, please contact Mrs Rachel Pugh rpugh1@eq.edu.au
 

Kids Lit Quiz

The Kids' Lit Quiz is an annual world wide  literature quiz for students aged 10 - 13 years. Kids Lit quiz takes place in term one each year.  Schools from around Brisbane compete against each other for a spot in the national final. Teams of four students are asked to answer 100 questions on children’s literature divided into ten categories, which vary each year.

Quizzes are held in Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Indonesia, New Zealand, Nigeria, Singapore, South Africa, United Kingdom and USA. The winning team from each heat competes in a National Final. National champions compete in the World Final.

Readers 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.
