Our Kids Matter Launch Week is proving a great community event. Our daily morning skipping has involved large numbers of students with plenty of willing parents and teachers very ably turning ropes – with a little skipping on the side!
Thanks to our Kids Matter team for organising the great "launch" week activities. We look forward to our community breakfast on Friday 31st October and the beginnings of our Kids Matter Art Project.
Last week Years 5,6,7 Masked Disco was a huge hit, going by the enthusiastic comments and tales I heard about the evening. Congratulations to the Year 6/7 students on their organisation of this much anticipated annual event.
WORLD TEACHER'S DAY
This event will be observed in Queensland on Friday 31st October. As a special celebration for our St Thomas' teachers, the P&F is organising morning tea for them. Thank you to the Year 1 parents for catering for this new event.
Gala Day All Year 4 to 7 students will play in the final gala day of sports tomorrow. All permission letters should be returned to class teachers. We have only two parent volunteers at the moment. These days are quite busy and always lots of fun for the students. To allow for as much team play and attention for each team, we need a number of parents to assist with managing teams and where possible, to umpire the game. It is a very simple game with just a few basic rules. If you are able to assist please let the class teacher or office know as soon as possible.
We are in great need of some parents to umpire both handball (simple) and cricket!!!
All students will be transported to their playing venue, handball at Wembley Park, Coorparoo and cricket at Kianawah Park, Tingalpa. Students need to wear their school hat, sports uniform, sunscreen and bring water, lunch and more sunscreen.
Queensland All Schools Touch I have been very pleased with the great improvement in the skills, tactics and understanding of the game shown by all team members. This team has trained solidly and with enthusiasm all term giving up Sunday afternoons to train as well as Tuesday afternoons. The team will play in the Queensland All Schools carnival on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd November against schools from all over south east Queensland and further inland including Toowoomba, Dalby and the northern coast towns such as Bundaberg. It is the largest touch primary school carnival in Queensland. We wish the team good luck and know that we will be proud of our school's ambassadors.
