We are proud to inform you that we are producing a new eNewsletter format with Schoolzine. The purpose of moving to this new format is to engage the school community more effectively and provide parents, students and the community with a more effective and content-rich newsletter format. This new format can include videos, image galleries, online bookings, feedback forms, calendars, an app and much much more.
Please take to the time to install the New App on your Smart Phone or iPad from
http://www.schoolzine.com/szapp and subscribe.
Please note: that the skoolbag app will no longer be used after this term.
Social Media / Digital Photographs
I accept that we live in an era where everything is recorded on digital media, through phones, iPads or cameras. Parents bring their devices to assemblies, carnivals and school events to capture and record the events that their child is involved in. The school cannot and will not sanction or support parents who put images of children, other than their own, or staff onto social media. The only way to stop this is to ban cameras and phones at school events, but this is not a position that we wish to take.
I remind all community members that if they wish to post images of their children on social media that there cannot be other students or staff members visible in the photos, unless you have the permission of the parent, care giver or staff member. Everyone in our community has the right to keep their privacy safe and protected. I appreciate your support with this.
Red Day Fundraiser
Our school Cross Country was held on Wednesday 5th of June. Congratulations to Mr Campbell for his terrific organisation of the event. Well done to those students who participated! They demonstrated the virtues of courage, perseverance and commitment as they all earned points for their House. There was only about 200 points that separated the Houses with Cowan Crusaders taking out the shield this year. The interschool Cross Country will be held at Adam Road Primary School on the 26th of June and we are sure the selected team will display the respect and sportsmanship that Kingston is renowned for.
Throughout the latter part of this term, we have had many staff who have been absent due to illness or other leave. In every case we attempt to secure relief teachers who know the school and know the children however, occasionally we employ staff who are unknown to the school. Our aim is to have consistency for the children as much as possible. Please remind your children that regardless of who their teacher is, we all expect them to display our core virtues of Care, Respect, Courage and Excellence at all times.
Congratulations to the following students who received Merit Awards this fortnight:
Imogen Schober, Sophie Lenane, Hope Barasa, Jayde Howlett, Blake Smith, Ari Martin, Ashton Proctor, Erika Phillips-Mitchell, Tyson Marfia, Lewis Fairweather, Jai Anthony, Zoe Lenane, Duncan Hughes, Abby Romeo, Mason Bubb, Kai Summers, Abby McLennan, Tysha Morse, Tristan Duncan, Vincent Richards, Tom Hinchcliffe, Evalyn Patten and Layden Evans, Henry Sims, Madison Dewar, Seth Blight-Nestor, Zyon Brown, Kai Martin, Kaiden West, Kingston Wickenden, Billie Challinger, Mitchell Lanyon, Maggeh Tran Nguyen, Jai Dow, Zekira Koro, Nashyah Collard, Samara Humphreys, Maddox James and Tawhiri Thompson.
This fortnight our Core Virtue is :Trust.
Trust is believing in someone or something. It is having confidence that the right thing will happen without trying to control it or make it happen. Sometimes it is hard to trust when life brings painful experiences. Trust is being sure, down deep, that there is some good in everything that happens.
I trust that there is some good in everything that happens. I have no need to control others. All fear and worry are released. I feel at peace and know I am not alone.
Congratulations to the following students who were nominated for Cupcakes for Caring this fortnight:
Amelia Carter, Kade Walton, Mason Meester, Matthew Wilson, Aidan Pickston and Kayleb Sadler-Hill.

For those of you that have never attended/or heard of Chin Wag, any parents or carers who are
- New to the area
- May feel isolated
- Have a partner who works away/shift worker
- May have some ideas on how we can extend our support to families
- Or you may just have some spare time and would love a 'cuppa and a chat'
We meet each Wednesday morning at 8.45am - 10.15am for morning tea. You will find us in the Osh Club room (Demountable building next to oval). We would love for you to come and join us in a friendly laid back environment. We look forward to meeting some new faces and catching up with the regular Chin Wag crew.
