Term Wrap Up
Term 2 has again been a busy time in our school with a significant number of students involved in sporting, cultural and academic opportunities outside of their standard classroom routines.
 
Our school has enjoyed success in a range of areas. Some of the notable achievements are: Khushi Patel, Kynan Elliott and Alice Ward for their individual achievements, six year 9 students attended a BIEEC Girls STEM camp, Toolooa’s Got Talent and The Smith Family Fundraiser. We have had significant numbers of students represent Port Curtis and Capricornia in an array of sporting fields with Hayden Pease making the State team for Hockey, along with instrumental music students representing our school strongly. A range of school camps and excursions have also taken place this term. Additionally, our student’s community service commitment continues to be strong. As I mention all the time, I am very proud of the achievements of our students and would like to thank the staff for their support and contribution to the students of Toolooa. If it was not for the time and effort teachers put in, students would not have the opportunities to engage and excel in academic, cultural and sporting fields.
 
Reporting
Just an update on our reporting process for this term. Year 11 and 12 reports will be posted home over the holidays with years 7 to 10 mailed out in the first week of term 3. If you have had a change of address recently, please contact the school to update your details so that reports are sent to the correct address.
 
Holiday Work Experience
We have a number of our year 11 and 12 students undertaking work experience during this upcoming holiday period. This provides these students with exposure to the workplace, an opportunity to understand that particular role and importantly, to develop a strong portfolio for future employment. With many of our senior students competing for apprenticeships, traineeships and employment in the near future, having holiday work experience on the CV may be the difference that employers are looking for. We encourage all Year 10, 11 and 12 students to consider this option for upcoming holiday breaks.
 
Safe Holidays
With this being the final newsletter to be issued before the holidays, I would like to take this opportunity to wish the Toolooa community a safe and relaxing holiday.
 
For those travelling on the roads, please be careful as we want all students to return safely on Monday the 15th of July.
