    PBL - Week 3

    This week our PBL focus has been on how to be respectful and responsible when using the school toilets. Students

    have recognised the importance of considering other student’s privacy and always leaving the toilet area clean.

    Our school expectations require students to take toilet breaks during recess, lunch, before and after school where

    possible. If a student needs to use the toilet during class time, they must always seek permission and return to class



    All book club orders must be placed online through LOOP. There is no need to return paper order forms or payment

    receipts to the school. Your child’s order will be delivered to the school and distributed to their classroom. They

    usually receive their orders within 2 weeks of the issue closing date. or download thei

    iPhone and iPad app from the App Store or get it on Google Play for Android.

    Avoca Beach Girls Netball Team Last Wednesday on 3 May the Avoca Beach Netball Team played their first game against Kincumber Public School.

    The girls played an awesome game with great sportsmanship and they all had a big smile on their face!

    They had lots of great intercepts, shots and did their personal best.

    They played a great first quarter and were only down by one at the end of the first quarter. Unfortunately, they

    ended up losing with the final score being 19-7.

    A big thank you to Miss Metti for putting the team together, organising it and coaching the girls and a big thank you

    to Alison Carlisle for helping with coaching the team.

    P&C NEWS-Jackie Concar

    “Volunteering can be an exciting, growing, enjoyable experience. It is truly gratifying to sense a cause, practise ones

    ideas, work with people, solve problems, see benefits and know one had a hand in them” Harriet Naylor.

    AGM, PRESIDENT NEEDED - At our AGM held in March I resigned from my position as President of Avoca Beach

    P&C, I have held this position for the last 3 years and was Secretary the year prior. I would like to thank all members

    of our school and community who have offered their support, gratitude and encouragement. It has not always been

    easy but I feel privileged to have been part of a team of such dedicated parents and would like to give special thanks

    to Fi Currie, Paula Jamal, Bernice Cilliers, Deon Cilliers, Michelle Mitchell, Annette Parker, Lyndsay Buening, Jodi

    Livesly and Liz McDonald for your continued positive support and keeping it fun along the way!!

    Unfortunately, there were no willing volunteers to take up the position of President and our current P&C is without a

    President. I would like to encourage anyone with a keen interest in our school to stand up and put themselves

    forward, it was a position I took on with little knowledge or experience and I have found it to be an extremely

    rewarding experience. I have learnt many new skills along the way and now is a great time to get involved when

    there is such a great team willing to offer help and support. I am more than willing to offer any help and support

    with the transition into the role.

    UNIFORM SHOP – Our Uniform shop will be closed this Wednesday 10th May, you may still order online through

    flexi- schools or you can wait and make your purchases on Friday. If you can offer an hour of your time once a term

    and are available Wednesdays 8.30am -9.30am or Friday 3pm-4pm, please let me know so we can continue to keep

    the uniform shop open, contact me at or 0431036106.

  • 78Avoca Beach Public School Newsletter Term 2 Week 3 NEXT MEETING – Our next meeting is tonight, Monday 8th May at 7pm in the staff room. All are welcome.

    Many thanks,
