From The Deputy
With Jess Batey
There’s so many exciting things happening at the moment, and I’ve been so proud of our students.
Next week we’re taking time during our junior and senior school parades to recognise the Gold Award recipients from term 4 last year, as well as present badges to our Junior and Senior Leaders. Normally, we would invite parents and family members in for these parades to help us celebrate, but we don’t have enough space to provide adequate social distancing for adults at the moment so we cannot extend that invitation for term one’s parades. I’d like to publicly congratulate all the students who will be recognised at these parades.
In addition to these students, we have also been so proud of two of our senior students who represented the school at the 2021 Lions Youth of the Year Awards over the weekend. Georgia Staines and Drishti, who are our school captains, engaged in the competition at Tannum Sands SHS over the weekend, and performed incredibly well. We are especially proud of Georgia, who took out first place overall in the competition. Both Drishti and Georgia are excellent role models for our school and community, and we are so proud of their efforts.
Last week, we hosted our Year 7 Meet the Teachers Evening and our Indigenous Meet and Greet. Both evenings were very successful, and we acknowledge those who took time out of their busy schedules to organise and/or attend them. We appreciate the connections that we have with families, and want to continue working together to strengthen them in future for the kids of Toolooa.
Last week at our full school parade, we had the pleasure of announcing the 2021 Careport (sport) Captains, who led our teams through yesterday’s swimming carnival. Congratulations to all recipients of these positions!
