    • Kincumba Shines/Education Week • Voluntary School Contributions • Congratulations • P & C and AECG Meeting News Kincumba Shines/Education Week Next week is Education Week and we are gearing up for our first

    ever combined performance with our partner schools in the Kincumba Learning Community. Rehearsals on Monday and a

    matinee and evening performance on Wednesday are exciting but very demanding for students and school staff. Performers have a last chance to buy tickets tomorrow as they open for general sale

    on Monday; entry to the matinee is by gold coin at the door. This is a very exciting program and we hope that this festival of the

    performing arts will be so successful that we will hold them regularly.

    On Tuesday morning everyone is welcome to join us at school for an open morning. Meet under the COLA at 10am where Stage 3

    and the violin group will entertain you with a bush dance and then head up to classrooms. When the bell goes at 10:50 am for lunch please join your children for lunch and a game. Tea, coffee and

    cakes will be on sale for parents from the canteen.

    Then on Thursday, Lisa Craddock, Karen Munton and Karen Charlton will be presented with certificates of appreciation at the Central Coast Awards at Lake Munmorah High School.

    Thank you to everyone who has supported the students and the

    school to achieve everything we have.

    Voluntary School Contributions Next week reminders will be going home for outstanding Mathletics and school contribution payments. Please finalise these as soon as possible.

    Congratulations Last Monday the primary athletics carnival was held in magnificent weather. As advised last week this was the last athletics carnival that Jon Elbra would organise. Although we thanked Jon for his

    long and dedicated service to sport at this school, we want to continue to be reminded of his contribution. A new trophy will be

    presented to the Champion House at this year’s presentation and the winning house will be awarded the Jon Elbra Champion House Shield.

    P & C and AECG Meeting News At last Monday’s AECG meeting held at Kincumber High School, Assistant Principal, Mary Liddy, announced that she had been successful in gaining funding under a Community Builders grant to

    further develop quality relationships between our school and the students and families in our Aboriginal Community. Well done Mary

    and we look forward a successful project. At last Monday’s P & C meeting it was decided to put the School

    Council in recess and establish a working party to review the operation of the School Council. Kel Butcher is coordinating this

    group which will consist of parent and teacher representatives. It is likely that in the next few weeks a survey may go home asking for your thoughts too—please consider responding.

    Hope you had a great week at our great school.
