With the wet and cold weather upon us, I would like to take this opportunity to
remind you of our School Dress Code Policy. It is important to maintain the
high standard that families here at Caboolture East have worked so hard
towards. Royal Blue sweat shirts and jackets with the school emblem are the
only jumpers/jackets permitted as per the School Dress Code Policy. Our
tuckshop offers lay-by’s to families who need to purchase a school jumper/
jacket. Thank you to our families for your support, our students look fantastic
and wear the school uniform with pride. If there are any concerns, please don’t
hesitate to see me by making an appointment.

SENSORY MOVIE DAY

This year Caboolture East State School
celebrates NAIDOC Week in Term 3, Week 1
from the 13th – 17th July. We will end our
week of celebrations with a special parade
on Friday 17th July.
“NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across
Australia each July to celebrate the history,
culture and achievements of Aboriginal and
Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC is
celebrated not only in Indigenous
communities, but by Australians from all
walks of life. The week is a great
opportunity to participate in a range of
activities and to support your local
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander
Sport . . .

Interhouse Senior Athletics (Years 3-6) will be held on the 19 June 2015
Our Junior Athletics (Prep to Year 2) will be held on the 23 June 2015
DISTRICT CROSS COUNTRY: After a successful school Cross Country campaign we turned our attention to the District
Competition. With the selection of the team, the training schedule went up a notch or two. This lead to the withdrawal of a
number of competitors, but those left were determined to put the time and effort into their training to represent the school to the
best of their ability.
Our trip to Burpengary was very successful with our team coming fourth in Division 3. A great effort considering the number
of students we had competing on the day. A special mention should be made of Suzanna Hall. Suzanna ran a very strong 13th
out of a possible 75 runners, a fantastic effort. Well done Suzanna and congratulations to all competitors they represented the
school at the top level and made us proud.

Class Work – All classes have been busy with assessment
over the past few weeks as we prepare for report season once
again. In music this has meant a whole heap of performances to enjoy as
students have been demonstrating their skills and creativity in music.
Those that have been prepared for class, finished their work and practised
hard have certainly been able to shine when it has come time to perform.
Speaking of performances, our School Musical cast have been busy at
lunchtimes and on Wednesday afternoons putting things together. Tickets
go on sale and there is an advertisement elsewhere in the newsletter with
details. Students in Prep – Yr3 classes are combining in their year levels
to perform before the main show and will elect which night they will be
coming to perform (or maybe even both!) – this allows parents with
students involved in various year levels to select the best night to attend.
Choir students are reminded to have their folder and USB drive with them
for all rehearsals on Monday afternoons.
Music Club will be taking a short break until the musical is over next
term, to allow students involved in both to concentrate on the show and
then return to club after week 5 of next term.

Good luck Grace!
Congratulations to you all and we wish you well

HELP!!! If you happen to have an empty “Eclipse Mints” tin (large
rectangular) available could you please send it in with your child as I’m
collecting some class sets for the Preps to make shakers with. Also anyone
with an old boogie board that has seen better days that they no longer
want, we’d love to have it for the musical!
