The recent meeting of the Parents and Citizens’ Association was ably and confidently chaired by Sam Ford, Vice President following the resignation of Mrs Leal. A comprehensive list of agenda items was tabled and systematically addressed. The attendees provided thoughtful suggestions and purposeful recommendations to guide the development of a draft program of activities to be supported by the Parents and Citizens’ Association throughout 2017. Mrs Ford directed the Leadership Team to seek competitive quotations for the installation of shade sails to cover the re-developed Year One and Year Two sandpits that will be completed during the Christmas Vacation.Year 1 play area

Through the coordinated management of funds provided by Education Queensland, the YMCA, Albany Creek State School and our generous Parents and Citizens’ Association projects for the Year One and Year Two playgrounds costing more than $100 000 will be delivered over the Christmas Vacation. The generosity of the Parents and Citizens’ Association must be commended. The support provided by the P&C continues to make an immediate impact on the quality of the learning environments and availability of resources across the campus.

At the next meeting of the Parents and Citizens’ Association on Tuesday 15th November, nominations will be called for the position of President. The successful nominee will be required to chair two meetings. After that time all executive positions will be declared vacant at the Annual General Meeting that will be convened in March 2017. As school staff and members of the Parents and Citizens’ Association work together to provide the very best opportunities for all children, we need your support. Volunteers for the tuckshop are needed. Supporters who help with class activities and special events make a significant difference. Our joint actions are for the children.

It has been a successful and rewarding week. The diligence and commitment demonstrated by more than seventy-five ACSS staff who embraced the Pupil Free Day program must be commended. Their collegiality has enabled us to set a clear set of academic priorities for 2017.

The actions and behaviour of students, including our youngest students who met the Minister for Education at Lone Pine Sanctuary yesterday have continued to make us very proud. The Year Four and Year Six semi-finals of the Annual Speaking Competition were held this week. As one of the judges for the Year Six Competition, I can say unequivocally that students and staff were highly impressed by the standard demonstrated of each of the semi-finalists. Earlier this week Mr Manns shared similar sentiments following judging the Year Four semi-finals. Next week our Year Five semi-finalists have an opportunity to impress. The finals of the Annual Speaking Competition will be held on Wednesday 2nd November at 7.00pm in Grayson Hall. The Annual Speaking Competition is always an impressive celebration of our students’ significant abilities.

Enrolment processes for Prep 2017 have commenced. As the school has an “Enrolment Management Plan” (EMP), children who reside in the official Education Queensland designated catchment area or who have a sibling currently attending the school must be provided with placements. It is most important for parents and caregivers who meet these requirements to inform the school immediately if they have a child who will be attending Prep in 2017.

Please click here to find out more.....

Once we are confident that Prep aged children for 2017 who reside in our enrolment catchment area or who are siblings of children who are currently enrolled at the school have been allocated placements, we can offer placements for children who do not live in the designated catchment area.  Once these offers are made and enrolments confirmed the school will be holding a number of placements in Prep for 2017 for families who move into the area throughout 2017. Our preparatory enrolments for 2017 must not exceed 125.

Please make contact with the school if you reside in the catchment area and you have a child who will  commence Prep in 2017. This request to make contact with the school is equally important if you have a child enrolled in the school and he or she has a sibling commencing Prep in 2017.

To find out more about our P&C please download our latest brochure.

The P&C have a Facebook page ALBANY CREEK SS P&C. Keep up with the latest, connect with other ACSS families and watch out for our competitions to be a winner.

Next meetings:  P & C - Thursday 15th November at 7pm in the Library Annexe.
