Make Belonging Matter

‘Community is much more than belonging to something; it’s about doing something together that makes belonging matter’ Simon Sinek

 

While the COVID pandemic has been challenging for us over the past year and a half, our school has been supported by the positive community spirit that we have at City Beach Primary School.

Every day our community spirit is showcased through the efforts of our school community who are committed to improving the outcomes our students can achieve each day. Parents involved in activities that benefit the school community contribute to our strong community spirit and ‘make belonging matter’. We value and acknowledge parents’ contributions to the life of the school whether engaging in organised, formal, informal or spontaneous activities.

There’s not a day that goes by where we don’t have the support of parents and volunteers around the school volunteering and offering their service to our school community. Whether it is helping in classrooms, the canteen, covering books in the library, behind the scenes as class reps, at School Board, P&C or Year 6 meetings, coaching, sharing ideas, focus groups, committees, looking for ways to improve, attending school functions or excursions; when we join together, we make a positive difference to our school. I know the staff join with me to thank you for your support, you ‘make belonging matter’.

Our School Board will welcome two new parent representatives at the next meeting this term; thank you to Emma Argiro and Shane Downey for your willingness to join the Board and contribute to the strategic direction of our school. We look forward to working with you both on the Board, as together we support the best interests of the students and school community.

Lastly, as a school, we are committed to maintaining the great health and hygiene practices that have become our new normal throughout COVID. Please continue to encourage these practices at home and help our school community to stay safe by keeping children who are unwell, at home until they recover. We appreciate your support.

Be Safe Be Kind Be Fair
