Please read our newsletter—
A heap of information is enclosed.!!!!!!
With the count down to the end of the year well on the way it is
time to reflect on some of our special events coming up over the
next 3 weeks. This Friday we will hold our swimming carnival. On
Thursday next week, November 28th, we will be voting for our
2015 school leaders. The year 5 students will present their
speeches prior to voting taking place. In the final week we have
our year 6/7 graduation night on Monday December 1st followed
by the school break-up on Wednesday December 3rd. School will
conclude on Friday December 5th following our end of year
liturgy.
I am in a positon to make some announcements in regard to
staffing for 2015. Miss Peta McLachlan has accepted a teaching
position in Emerald for 2014. Advertising for a LOTE teacher is
currently taking place. Mr Jeff Coward has advised that he will not
be returning next year. Mrs Cherie Jenkins will be taking PE
classes next year. I would like to wish Peta and Jeff all the best
and thank them for their work throughout this year. Miss Kaitlyn
Woulleman-King has been appointed to our teaching staff for next
year. Miss Woulleman-King is a local to the Tully area and is
currently teaching at Tully State School. Mrs Sharon Chappel has
also been appointed to our staff for 2015. Mrs Chappel will be
sharing a class with Mrs Camilleri. She will be moving into the
area from Emerald.
Volunteers Morning Tea
On Wednesday November 26th at 11am we will be having a
volunteers morning tea for parents. This will be held in the library
and will be an opportunity for the school to say thank you to the
many parents who have helped the teachers throughout the year.
This help may have been in many different ways including help
with reading groups, help in the library, help with Masses and
liturgies, help with camps and excursions or help with sporting
activities such as swimming or athletics.
Gift Boxes
As previously mentioned Nicholas and Sophie, our school
captains, are inviting families to prepare gift boxes to be donated
to children who are in hospital over the Christmas period. If
anyone would like to support this worthy cause please collect the
empty boxes from the school office. The idea is to fill the boxes
with various gift items. Boxes need to be returned to the school
office by November 24th.
HPE Lessons
With swimming lessons now complete PE lessons will resume at
school on Wednesdays for all classes except Prep. PE lessons
for Prep students will take place on Thursdays. Students are
asked to wear their PE uniform on these days.

Swimming Carnival
The Carnival is on this Friday. Children will need to be
at school by 8:30am so that the class rolls can be
taken. Children will then walk to the pool with their
classes. The first race will commence at 9am. A
program of events is attached to this newsletter. Please
note that Prep to year 2 will return to school after the
25 metre events at approximately 11:30.
Anyone wishing to order tuckshop for Friday is asked
to return their orders by Thursday.

AN INTERVIEW WITH GOD
I dreamed I had an interview with God.
So, you would like to interview me?"God asked.
"
If you have the time,"I said.
"
God smiled. "
My time is eternity; what questions do
you have in mind to ask me?"
" hat surprises you most about humankind?"
W
God answered: "
That they get bored with childhood -they rush to grow up and then long to be children again.
That they lose their health to make money and then lose
their money to restore their health.
That by thinking anxiously about the future, they forget the
present, such that they live neither the present nor the
future.
That they live as if they will never die, and they die
as if they had never lived..."
God's hands took mine and we were silent for a while and
then I asked... "
As a parent, what are some of life's lessons
you want your children to learn?"

God replied with a smile: "
To learn that they cannot make
anyone love them. What they can do is to let themselves be
loved. To learn that what is most valuable is not what they
have in their lives, but who they have in their lives.
To learn that it is not good to compare themselves to
others.
To learn that a rich person is not the one who has the
most, but is one who needs the least.
To learn to forgive by practicing forgiveness.
To learn that there are persons who love them dearly,
but simply do not know how to express or show their
feelings.
SCHOOL ASSEMBLY
THIS THURSDAY at 8.40am
Presented by: Yr 5
All parents and friends are invited to attend.
To learn that money can buy everything but happiness.
To learn that two people can look at the same thing
and see it very differently.
To learn that it is not always enough that they be
forgiven by others, but that they must also forgive
themselves.
SPORTING
And to learn that I am here -- always."

Tuckshop
ATTACHED.
Your tuckshop needs you! Helping in the tuckshop is fun and easy, and a
great way to get to know other parents in our school.
The tuckshop generates in excess of $4000 for the P&F, which is given back to the school to help ensure that our children have
the best resources possible to support their learning. Next year we will be losing a number of tuckshop volunteers as the Yr6/7
group leaves the school. If we cannot replace those that are leaving with new volunteers our tuckshop will be in jeopardy of
ceasing to operate. We are also looking for people to help run the tuckshop next year. We will hold an ‘Introduction to helping
in the tuckshop’ morning early next year for all volunteers. If you are available to help next year with volunteering or baking
please indicate below and return the tear off slip to the office ASAP. You can also text this information to Jenny Crema on
0427069452.
End of Year BBQ
Wednesday 3th December is our End of Year BBQ & Concert. A BBQ dinner will be available
the night. The P&F are looking for volunteers to help cook on the BBQ and serve in the
kitchen. Please indicate below for catering purposes how many family members will be
attending, and if you can help with the BBQ and return the tear off slip ASAP.
