This term has been incredibly busy with many exciting activities such as the Athletics Carnival, Primary Disco, Canberra Tour, Father’s Day, Year 5 Camp Science Week and Book Week. As you would be aware, none of these activities and events come together without the support and direction from our wonderful teaching staff, aides, parents and community members. Thank you to all who have worked tirelessly this term, assisting in creating a fabulous environment with wonderful opportunities for our students.

On Friday 6 September, we had the opportunity to thank our Teacher Aide and School Officer staff as part of Teacher Aide Day. These wonderful people help to ensure that students feel supported and safe on a daily basis, and we are greatly appreciative of all the work they do.

The MS Readathon has come to an end, with students from CHAC raising over $2,880. This money will enable children to attend special MS Family Camps. These camps provide families living with multiple sclerosis an opportunity to spend quality time together, learn more about multiple sclerosis and bond with others who are sharing their journey. Thank you to all of the students, parents and community who assisted in making this event a success.

Students in Year 5 had an amazing time in Maroochydore during their recent Year 5 Camp. They experienced some new activities such as Stand Up Paddle Boarding, Kayaking and Dragon Boat Racing. Character Builders facilitated the activities, bringing students together in an environment that taught them the importance of encouraging one another and discovering their leadership potential. Thank you to Michelle Hammill, Carolyn Troughton, Troy Jones, and Reverend Rev. Sarah Leisemann for attending the camp and supporting students in this journey.

The Primary Portfolio Meetings will be held on Tuesday 17 September from 3.30pm to 6.30pm. If you have not already booked a time to visit your child’s classroom, please register via the following link  www.schoolinterviews.com.au and entering the school event code hyyck.

Friday 20 September is a free dress day with the theme ‘Fiver for a Flyer’. This initiative is part of a fundraising activity for the Years 8 and 9 Outback Tour heading to Charleville during the holidays. As a College, we are actively raising money for the Royal Flying Doctor Service, enabling them to purchase equipment for the Charleville unit.

Could you please encourage your child to bring in $5 on the last day of school and dress-up to support the RFDS. Many thanks for your encouragement and support with this worthy initiative.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a safe and enjoyable holiday break. We look forward to seeing you again at the start of Term 4.
