Tour & TalkTOUR & TALK
It was pleasure and privilege to welcome so many parents and caregivers to our “Annual Tour and Talk Day” that was held earlier this week. The event provided a relaxed and informative opportunity for our guests to glean important enrolment information and afforded them with several opportunities to join classes, to witness the dedication of staff and the enthusiasm of our students and to appreciate our well-resourced learning environment. In coming weeks, Mrs Royle and Mrs Dickson-Ford will be extending invitations to parents and caregivers, along with their sons and  daughters to attend an enrolment interview. These interviews are an essential and most important part of the enrolment process.

Earlier in the day the Preparatory staff and Leadership Team hosted a breakfast for the Directors of the many Pre-Prep Centres that provide many of our prospective students with access to age appropriate creative and challenging learning experiences. The strong links we continue to build have with our Pre-Prep providers greatly increases the success of the transition to Prep.

Loose Change ChallengeLOOSE CHANGE CHALLENGE
Thank you Albany Creek – The Loose Change Challenge is proving to be a very successful initiative and with your continued support we are on target to raise approximately $3500.00 which represents $100 per class.  All of the funds raised will be used to purchase cooking ingredients, drinks and other items to make our 2016 Winter Carnival a wonderful success and a true celebration of community. Don’t forget to bring your loose change in each morning before. The collection buckets are located outside Grayson Hall each morning.

Mystery JudgeMYSTERY JUDGE
The Winter Carnival will be a day of great fun, excitement and a genuine “Celebration of Community for Albany Creek”. Preparations for the Winter Carnival are providing us with many opportunities to share in the enjoyment of being part of the Albany Creek School Community. The Cupcake Decorating Competition at the Winter Carnival is always a great activity for the children, and others. This year our special ‘Master Judge” for the Cupcake Competition is Mr Mair.  Andrew is looking forward to this added responsibility and took the initiative to come to assembly dressed for the occasion. Thank you Andrew (Mr Mair) we know that you are totally committed to Albany Creek State School and encourage opportunities for the children. (We may need to implement a plan to stop Mr Mair from eating many of the cupcakes.)
