Principal’s Message
Thanks to all our students, parents and staff for a smooth start to our year. Hopefully you have all had a chance to meet your childrens’ teachers, or will be able to do so this at our Information Evening this Thursday. This is the first formal occasion we meet as teachers and parents, and is an opportune time to remind you that it is essential we work together for the benefit of our children. Please do not hesitate to talk to me or your child’s teacher about issues that arise from school. This way we can address these issues before they become problems. Information Evening Please join us for our Information Evening this Thursday where all our class teachers will be outlining the year ahead, including class and homework expectations and be able to answer your questions. Our P&C are running a barbecue with sausage sizzle at $1 and poppers for $1.50 from 5:30 – 7:30pm. Frances would love some help cooking or serving, so please go down and see her if you can spare the time. We hope you take this opportunity to come and talk to our staff and other members of our community. The session times are: 5:00pm Prep –Year 2 5:30 pm Yrs 3/4 & 5/6 6:15pm Year 7 These will all be conducted in their respective classrooms by their teachers. Special Needs Committee Our Special Needs Committee deals with concerns about students' behaviour, academic progress and social/emotional well being. If you would like to

Education Tax Refund Legislation I have included some information below to clarify confusion about eligibility criteria for tax deductible expenses relating to student expenses now that the Education Tax Refund legislation received Royal Assent on 9th December 2008. Eligible families are able to claim a 50% refund every year for eligible education expenses up to: • $750 for each child undertaking primary studies (maximum refundable tax offset of $375 per child, per year). Eligible Expenses cover the purchase, lease, hire, hire-purchase of: • Laptops, home computers and associated costs (e.g. this could include a number of computer components purchased to build a home computer, and include repair and running costs); • Computer-related equipment such as printers, USB flash drives; and disability aids to assist the use of computer equipment for students with disabilities (including repair and running costs); • Home Internet connection (establishment and maintenance); • Computer software (such as word processing, spreadsheet, database and presentation software and educational games; and Internet filters and antivirus software); • School textbooks and other paper-based school learning material (including prescribed textbooks, associated learning materials, study guides and stationery - for example pencils, pens, compasses and glue); and • Tools of trade (as prescribed by the course). Expenses that are not eligible for the purposes of the tax offset include: • School fees; • School uniform expenses; • Student attendance at school-based extra-

curricular activities, such as excursions; • Tutoring costs; • Computer games and consoles; • Musical Instruments; • Sporting Equipment; and • School subject levies (e.g. payment for consumables for particular subjects such as woodwork, art or home science). More information is also available from the Australian Taxation Office web site at home/ or a Departmental Fact Sheet from our office. Peter Wilson P&C Notes Please find enclosed a P&C membership form for all families to fill in and return to the school office. Our P&C Association aims to foster general community interest in educational matters, bring closer cooperation between parents of students, community members, staff and students. We provide feedback to the Principal on issues and concerns in respect of the students and have a few laughs along the way. However, the desires of parents who want the best educational opportunities for their children remain the centre focus of us all. P&C Meeting - The first meeting for 2009 will be on the 18th February at 7:30pm in the school library. All welcome. P&C Annual General Meeting - The AGM will be held on the 18th March at 7:30pm in the school library followed by our regular monthly meeting. Student Banking Program Student banking is carried out once a week. Students need to bring their bank deposit books and money to the office on Monday mornings (Tuesday mornings if Monday is a holiday). If you would like to start up a Commonwealth ‘Super Saver’ account for your child please pick up a Parent Pack from the office.

Chaplaincy News Hello and welcome to this great school. Some new students and parents may not know that this year I am at Kenilworth SCC on Tuesdays and Fridays. Tuesday we start with a small breakfast before school called ‘Food for Thought’. I’m available for support and have access to networks that can help out. Looking forward to a great new school year. Boyd Eime (Chappy) Sports News Our students are in for a busy term to start the sporting year off. Last Friday our Year 5-7 swimmers qualified for the Tuesday 24th February Small Schools Swimming Carnival in Nambour. Friday afternoon sport for Year 3-7 will focus on Softball / TBall and I have invited Conondale State School to come here on the 20th February to play our teams. We will travel to Conondale on the 27th February with these games being a lead up to this years Small Schools Softball / T-Ball Carnival at Mooloolah on the 6th March 2009. We will take a Year 4/5 boys and girls team and a Year 6/7 boys and girls team. A Small Schools team will be selected from this day to compete at regional level. Our Noosa District Sports Affiliation will continue and I urge you to try and give your child the opportunity to try out at the sports that are coming up this semester. For students in Years 5-7 I have included the Noosa District Sports calendar in this week’s issue of Kenilinks. I will pass on

venue and time details as they become available to me. A reminder to return consent forms and money for this term’s swimming lessons to the office as soon as you can. Yours in Sport, Peter Trewick
2009 has got off to a great start with most students having borrowed books and making good use of their library. Please remember to bring your library bag. Some Prep students brought their mums in to come and have a look. EVERYONE IS WELCOME! We have wonderful resources with new books waiting to be put on the shelves. Any one who has a little time to spare to come and do some book covering either in our air-conditioned library or to take home would be greatly appreciated. Thank you to Jo Bell for kindly offering to help with “Book Club” this year. The students really look forward to this. Our school appreciates our parent helpers very much. Thank you to Sharyn for donating “The Ant and the Leaf” book written by Sharyn Bentley, our local author.
