Dear Students, Parents and Carers,

It is that time of the year when everyone’s calendars become full with many end of year activities. Please take note of all the school based events we have coming up during the next six weeks and mark them in your diary.

Our report cards for this semester will be emailed home during the last week of school. Families using QParents will be able to access their child’s report cards significantly earlier than those waiting for the email. Please see the previous email sent home about registering for QParents.

We have been contacted by a concerned community member about students wearing the Mount Marrow State School uniform while riding their bikes around the neighbourhood in an unsafe manner and without helmets. As students are wearing their uniforms whilst being unsafe, it reflects poorly on the school and we encourage all students to be safe at all times whilst riding their bikes.

We are currently in the process of planning an upgrade to our playground. We are planning for this upgrade to take place over the Easter holidays. The more funding we can raise for the playground, the better the playground will for all students next year.

Kind regards,
K. Emma McBain

Christmas Concert and Awards Night

The Mount Marrow State School Annual Christmas Concert and Awards Night will be held on Tuesday 3rd December. Doors will open for seating at 5:15pm with the performance beginning at 5:30pm sharp.

The teachers have been busy planning and preparing for an exciting evening and coordinating dance moves. If your child will not be attending please let us know as soon as possible so we can make alternative arrangements.

There will be a shared supper after the presentation of awards. Please bring a plate of food to share, one per student.

School Dental Van

The West Moreton School Dental Van is coming on Wednesday 20th November and will be contacting parents shortly to arrange appointment times. Permission forms were sent home in October. If you would like your child to see the dentist and have not returned your form, you can contact West Moreton Health on 1300 763 246.
