ICAS

This year’s ICAS tests will be taking place across three weeks in August/September, which commenced two weeks ago.

We are on our last week of ICAS tests and the time table is as follows:
Maths (Tuesday 01/09 Primary, Monday 31/08 M&S)
Spelling (Thursday 03/09 Primary, Wednesday 02/09 M&S)

Please ensure participating children arrive at school on time on those days. Middle and Secondary students will need their iPads to be fully charged.

Looking forward to seeing great results from all our participating College students.

Year 2 Stay Late

This week on Thursday, 3 September Year 2 will be having their Year 2 Stay Late from 3.00-7.00pm. We are excited for this evening as I’m sure you might be too. We have several rotations planned as well as a pizza dinner. If you have any questions please contact your class teacher.

Staff Development & Student Free Day

This week on Friday, 4 September we have a state wide Staff Development and Student Free Day. We pray that you will have the best long weekend full of laughter, joy, adventure and relaxing.

If you are stuck on what to do over the weekend or have run out of activity ideas we always have a number of ideas that you can check out on our College Pinterest account. CLICK here to view Brisbane Christian College Pinterest boards.

Book Week

Our Book Week theme this year is “Curious Minds”. We are focusing on encouraging creativity, enquirying in learning and an interest in both fiction and non-fiction books. Book Week will run from Monday, 14 September – Friday, 18 September at the Primary Campus.

This year as we celebrate “Curious Minds” for Book Week, there will be some modified events. We are unfortunately unable to have parents, caregivers or friends on campus this year for our Costume Parade, but be assured that we will post as many photos and videos as possible!

The Costume Parade is set for the last day of Term 3, Friday, 18 September. We encourage you to help your child create a costume that is improvised from items that you have on hand. We are not expecting anyone to spend money on new costumes, but our judges will be looking for creativity. We hope that children can participate in this event in a spirit of fun and mutual enjoyment without focusing on being competitive.

Our annual Reading Competition will commence Monday, 24 August and run until Friday, 11 September. Classroom teachers will hand out forms for this. We encourage you to please read the information on the front page of the entry form that will come home. Late entries will not be accepted. Pizza party prizes will be awarded to winning classes in each of Lower, Middle and Upper Primary. Special dietary needs will be taken into account for these events.

This year our Book Fair will be run online, due to COVID-19 restrictions. More information will be sent home regarding this. It will involve ordering online, with books being delivered directly to your home address. We are excited at the range of classic and Christian literature that is available.

We are looking forward to encouraging your children to participate in these and other activities, as we seek to promote an enjoyment and passion for learning and reading.
