PBL - Week 3
This week our PBL focus has been on how to be respectful and responsible when using the school toilets. Students
have recognised the importance of considering other student’s privacy and always leaving the toilet area clean.
Our school expectations require students to take toilet breaks during recess, lunch, before and after school where
possible. If a student needs to use the toilet during class time, they must always seek permission and return to class
SCHOLASTIC BOOK CLUB ORDERS
All book club orders must be placed online through LOOP. There is no need to return paper order forms or payment
receipts to the school. Your child’s order will be delivered to the school and distributed to their classroom. They
usually receive their orders within 2 weeks of the issue closing date. www.scholastic.com.au/LOOP or download thei
iPhone and iPad app from the App Store or get it on Google Play for Android.
78Avoca Beach Public School Newsletter Term 2 Week 3
Avoca Beach Girls Netball Team Last Wednesday on 3 May the Avoca Beach Netball Team played their first game against Kincumber Public School.
The girls played an awesome game with great sportsmanship and they all had a big smile on their face!
They had lots of great intercepts, shots and did their personal best.
They played a great first quarter and were only down by one at the end of the first quarter. Unfortunately, they
ended up losing with the final score being 19-7.
A big thank you to Miss Metti for putting the team together, organising it and coaching the girls and a big thank you
to Alison Carlisle for helping with coaching the team.

P&C NEWS-Jackie Concar
“Volunteering can be an exciting, growing, enjoyable experience. It is truly gratifying to sense a cause, practise ones
ideas, work with people, solve problems, see benefits and know one had a hand in them” Harriet Naylor.
AGM, PRESIDENT NEEDED - At our AGM held in March I resigned from my position as President of Avoca Beach
P&C, I have held this position for the last 3 years and was Secretary the year prior. I would like to thank all members
of our school and community who have offered their support, gratitude and encouragement. It has not always been
easy but I feel privileged to have been part of a team of such dedicated parents and would like to give special thanks
to Fi Currie, Paula Jamal, Bernice Cilliers, Deon Cilliers, Michelle Mitchell, Annette Parker, Lyndsay Buening, Jodi
Livesly and Liz McDonald for your continued positive support and keeping it fun along the way!!
Unfortunately, there were no willing volunteers to take up the position of President and our current P&C is without a
President. I would like to encourage anyone with a keen interest in our school to stand up and put themselves
forward, it was a position I took on with little knowledge or experience and I have found it to be an extremely
rewarding experience. I have learnt many new skills along the way and now is a great time to get involved when
there is such a great team willing to offer help and support. I am more than willing to offer any help and support
with the transition into the role.
UNIFORM SHOP – Our Uniform shop will be closed this Wednesday 10th May, you may still order online through
flexi- schools or you can wait and make your purchases on Friday. If you can offer an hour of your time once a term
and are available Wednesdays 8.30am -9.30am or Friday 3pm-4pm, please let me know so we can continue to keep
the uniform shop open, contact me at email@example.com or 0431036106.
