Chaplaincy Community Carols TUESDAY 5th

​Our carols committee is currently in full swing with planning for this year’s Chaplaincy Carols and it’s looking to be another fun filled night.

We will be starting at 5:00pm with our preshow entertainment.

This year that will include some old favourites with market stalls, snow cones, glow sticks and face painting. We’ve also added in a Jumping castle for the kids (with a gold coin entry). If you look hard you’ll spot our roaming Christmas elf. You may even see Santa himself.
For dinner why not try our BBQ pulled pork and slaw rolls, the King of Wings and our good old cheerio cups and sausages. Then finish it off with some yummy home bake or a Krispy Kreme donut.

The official program will begin at 6:30pm and be finished by 7:30pm. During this time we will be asking that children be seated on the oval with their parents or caregiver.

We are still looking for helpers on the night, so if you have an hour to spare please let us know we are looking for the following.
  • home baker (goods can be dropped to the offices on
    the day)
    help set up and prepare food from 1:00 – 3:00 or to
    help pack down from 7:30 – 8:30
    helpers to serve food on the night (various timeslots)
    wandering security to help lost kids find their family
If you are able to help in any way please see Chappy Mal, let the office know or email us at

Parking for Carols

As this is a large event please consider our neighbours when parking.
Please note that the Mt Bruce Scout Hut is privately owned property and NOT to be used for school parking (including the footpath) The Scout group run their own programs and parking on their property endangers their children during these times.
So please do not park there.

Some substitutions necessary

​As we move closer to the end of the year, the tuckshop inevitably runs out of menu items. Items will be listed as ‘out of stock’ on the flexischools menu and substitutions will be made where possible.

Vacation Care

​Dear families! Well it has been a huge week with the release of both our Vacation Care forms for the Christmas holidays, and the enrolment forms for 2018. Based on the volume of forms pouring back in it is going to be a very busy holiday and a very large start to the New Year! 

With this in mind, if you know you will be requiring care please ensure you get your forms in as it is likely we will face capacity on some days. Furthermore, if you did not receive this paper work via email please make contact ASAP so we can send it out. Our email address is:

Thanks, and have a great week.

“Gotta find ‘em all! “

​It is that time of year again!!! Time to find all those library books and get them back to the library! All parent and student loans need to be back this week.

Places to look…. Under the bed, couch, car seat. On the coffee table, bookshelf, kitchen bench! They are very good at hiding, and the longer you leave them the more hidden they become!
Remember your Brisbane City Council library can provide books, magazines, CDs, ebooks for your family over the holidays. Keep in the habit of reading with your children over the holidays. Join the Summer Reading Club!

Colour Fun Run update

​What a fantastic fun day we had on Friday. In all its glory, the colour was flying and everyone had so much fun. Thank you to all the volunteers who helped on Friday and special thanks to Mel Loring and Nicole Carey (P&C President) for all the hard work and effort leading into the event. I know we had many parents wanting to just throw the colour and enjoy the day as much as the students and staff. Special thanks to Steve Minnikin, for starting our event and sponsoring the slushee machine, which of course was a perfect way to finish the event.
