The Torimba Parade will be held on Saturday October 14 and we will confirm a meeting place and the time next week. It is a Western theme so you have the opportunity to be really creative or just wear your jeans. This is a community event and I feel that it is important that we support the organisers of the festival. I understand that some of our students march with or are involved with other organisations and this is perfectly fine; participation is the key.
Josh has been commissioned by the Tablelands Regional Council to create a Music Video promoting the message of community awareness and preparedness in the event of emergencies and natural disasters. The aim of the song and video will be to relay a serious message in a fun and interactive way by involving the entire community. The Music Video will also showcase the scenic and unique attributes of the region along with the vibrant personalities and community spirit when times are tough. Josh will be at our school on Wednesday October 25 to record the students singing his song. This will be at 11.15 am and you are welcome to join us. On Thursday October 26 some of our students will be travelling to Atherton to record further lyrics. More details to follow.
October is also World Mission Month, “SOCKTOBER” as Catholic Mission have labelled it. Catholic Mission’s are Christians committed to building a better world for all of God's people and a world where everyone has all the basic human rights and needs to live a comfortable life.
This year’s theme: ‘I have come so that they may have life and have it to the full’ with a special action focus on ‘Uganda’.
Children can start bringing in their coins at any time for the month of October and place them into their class sock. On the 1st day of November, the money will be counted from each class. The class with the most money raised will win a prize (of course we will need to divide the amount of money raised from each class by the number of children in it to keep things fair for those smaller classes).
Next Wednesday 18th October we will hold a “Crazy Sock Day” and children can come to school wearing their craziest/ favourite pair of socks for the day. We ask that students bring in a gold coin donation on the day and put into their class sock to help us raise funds. We will also hold a “Socktober Storytime Day” during the month where each class will read a story on the same day that has a powerful social justice message.
The next P and F Meeting will be held on Monday 23rd October at 4.30pm in the staffroom. Please come along. This is a wonderful opportunity to hear first hand the school plans for 2018 and to have input into how P and F funds are dispersed.
