Principal News - 5th August, 2017

5/09/2017
G’day Parents / Caregivers,
 
We are under 2 weeks away from our School 125th  Anniversary Celebrations and we need your HELP!  Displays are being organised, the souvenirs and 125th book have arrived and the schedule is confirmed but now we need you – please indicate on the form sent home last week where/when you can help out.  Most of the timeslots are only for one hour shifts and as they say in the classics…’many hands make light work!’
 
Something that is not light work is the contribution of members of the 125th committee, who have put in a massive effort to bring together this special event.  I would like to specifically acknowledge Pauline Grech & Barb Schusser for the effort with the magnificent 125th publication, Delys Siddle, Robyn Creese for the tireless work around the displays and the schedule, Mary Noonan for assisting with the displays and Murray Hall & Angela Blackburn for their hard work with the spectacular tile mural.  We appreciate everyone is busy but please have a look at the volunteer sheet and help run a successful school celebration.
Speaking of a successful school event – what about the Fun Run!  Well done to ALL students for their outstanding efforts and school spirit on Friday.  Also, massive thanks to Mr Brown for organising such a spectacular event with the all the colour, music and the awesome running tunnel.  All funds raised will be directed back to school resources and programs, largely in the HPE area.
 
Another great performance by Mirani State School students on the big stage.  Well done Josh H. and Thomas W. who performed commendably at the Pioneer Valley Public Speaking Competition last night at the Mirani SHS Auditorium.  Both delivered their three minute persuasive speeches with excellent skill, passion and influence.   We are proud of you both!
 
Furthermore, next week is the last week for Term 3. Past attendance trends indicate that student attendance drops significantly over the last two days of school. Please note that these are still mandatory school days and students are still required to attend. Last week’s attendance rate dropped below 90% (88.9%) which is significantly lower than our goal of 95% and needs improvemnt. Let’s not forget that EVERY DAY COUNTS!
 
Cheers Bruce
