Our school

Term two has taken off at a cracking pace. As you would know, the old library has been demolished and removed.  The construction team are starting to set up today.  Our projected completion time is the end of May.  

Thanks to parents and students for an excellent excursion last week.  The students gave a lot of very positive feedback about the day. 

Next week is NAPLAN, which will be completed on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings. This is for year 3 only.  Year 4 will complete a ‘resit’ for internal monitoring purposes. I would like to emphasise to parents that NAPLAN is not something students should be stressed about.  They are given plenty of preparation at school, so that the process isn’t too daunting.

Sports

This term we will continue our NRL health and practical sessions.   We are also preparing for the Small Schools Sports Day which is on Wednesday 7th June.  We will be training the students for running, long jump, shot put and ball games.  We don’t have the appropriate equipment or certification to teach discus or high jump andI haven’t been able to source a PE teacher who is available to come out.  For these two events I’ll try to give the students a basic idea of skills involved so that they can practice at home if they wish.  The important thing to remember about Small Schools Sports Day is that the focus is on Fun & Participation.  Any students who qualify on this day, will have the opportunity to compete at further levels.

Music 

I welcome Mr Rankin, our Music teacher.  Michael will be coming to Gogango for an hour per week on Wednesdays.  P-1 have a 30min general music lesson and the 3-4s have a 30min guitar lesson.  Students have already had 2 lessons this term and have thoroughly enjoyed them. Some new guitars have also been purchased to ensure students are working with the correct size instrument.

Ambulance News

Recent Floods / Thank You. 

I would like to thank everyone for their help and cooperation to the Ambulance Service during the recent rain and flood event. 

Unfortunately we still had to attend a few people who thought the “If it’s Flooded, Forget it” rule, didn’t apply to them. 

However it was really encouraging when travelling around and talking to people the number of them who had pulled up and decided to wait because of water over the road, happily stating they will wait until it is safe or look for another way around that was not affected by water.

I would also like to thank everyone from Bluff to Rockhampton who made sure the Ambulance had everything that was needed or gave all the assistance they could. 

We attend a few jobs during the event that were made much easier because people were happy to get in and give a hand. 

There are a lot of people who helped and I don’t want to name anyone in case I forget somebody, however for everyone who help with a patient, helped with getting access, made sure we had what we needed or simply gave some information they thought may be of use, thank you, it was truly appreciated. 

If you require Ambulance assistance or attendance always dial 000, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

For routine or administration enquiries dial 13 12 33.

Carol Haigh,

Principal.
