SCHOOL NEWSLETTER Term 4 Week 5 4th November, 2014
We have started further assessments of the children in reading, spelling and maths and I will be happy to discuss these with you within a couple of weeks. As I said on my introductory letter, please don’t hesitate to call in any time before or after school or to make a time to see me on my Thursdays off class.
This Thursday, I will be training our staff in the implementation of the MultiLit intervention program, as I am a certified trainer for this. This program intensively tutors targeted students in their sight words, word attack skills, reading fluency skills and has a spelling component as well. It has proven very successful in giving students a boost with their reading and spelling. The resources and staffing allocation required to implement MultiLit were already here in the school and our staff are keen to learn about this program, so it will be easy to get it up and running with targeted students who will benefit from it. We will also be looking into purchasing the MiniLit resources, which is the equivalent program for younger students.
Halloween Movie Night
Congratulations to our P&C for a fantastic Halloween Movie Night last Friday and for all the effort that had gone into organising the sausage sizzle, treats and setting up the movie. It was wonderful to see such a great attendance from our students, parents, staff and community and I enjoyed the opportunity to meet so many of you. The children’s costumes were just amazing and a lot of fun was had by all.
A big thank you to the students, parents, staff and community of Currabubula, who made me feel very welcome in my first week in the school. It isn’t taking long to get to know everyone and to learn about the routines and activities of the school. I look forward to meeting with you next Monday at the P&C meeting to discuss any future directions that you and I may envisage for the school.

Veggie and Fruit Hints
Lettuce wraps are a good way to pack a lot of veggies into a meal. Chop up any vegetables you have such as carrots, celery, and capsicum. Add spices to your liking and sauté it all together. If you don’t have the time, the chopped veggies can also be served raw. Pile the mixture onto lettuce leaves and serve. It becomes an interactive and fun way for kids to eat. Try adding chicken, tuna, or egg salad for a boost of protein!
Nothing is easier than raw veggie sticks and dip! A variety of vegetables can be used as well as some low-fat dips. Try hummus or a simple avocado yogurt dip to go with the veggie sticks. Peanut butter or cream cheese may also go well with a vegetable such as celery sticks.
Put a twist on fresh fruit by chilling in the freezer, it gives fruit a different texture. Freezing works with all fruits, but grapes, blueberries and bananas are especially tasty when frozen.
Congratulations to Isobel, Phebe, Kitty, Lilly and Max for their awards presented on Friday by Mrs. Ballard for the Botswana Project. There were thirty schools who participated and twenty one CWA clubs involved. For the first time an entry from a student from Currabubula School won the regional perpetual shield and this entry has gone onto state. Well done Max!
The next assembly is a Senior Assembly to be held on Friday 14th November, everyone is welcome.

Once upon a vampire time a kid went to trick or treat. He saw a vampire. He said, “I want to suck your blood”. He ran and ran as fast as he could. There was a fire. He jumped into a tree. He died. The End. By Seth
Once upon a scary night there was a little girl about five. She was off to her Gran’s house. She came to a forest on a spooky path. She was shocked to see a bear! She screamed but she heard a noise. It said “Oooooh!” She ran like the wind. A tree scratched her on the way. She started to bleed it was red. So she ran once again off she went. She went up the creaky stairs up to her Gran’s apartment but there was a dragon guarding it. So she waited for an hour then the dragon fell in the river. Then she went inside there was a wolf! Her Gran wasn’t there, then she heard a noise. “Blerk” it said. She found her Gran locked in a cupboard. She got her out then they punched it and kicked it and punched it again then they killed it. The End
