Our community spirit was evident when 24 students and 2 staff donned gloves, hats, sunscreen and insect repellent and prepared to battle the mud on Saturday 9 February. We were called to battle by Mayor Margaret Strelow and our group was sent off to clean the paths and spread chip bark at Riverside Park so that it could be re-opened to the public. We were the only School group of volunteers and we are very proud of the girls and their efforts to support the local community.

Once data has been input, future forms should just require your review and addition of any changes. Also, please return Vaccination Consent Forms for girls in Years 8 and 10.

The booklet is from the Australian Academy of Science and is titled The Science of Immunisation: Questions and Answers. The link is: The Swimming Carnival is coming up soon. Developmentally, none of our children and young people can adequately see forward in time to be able to appreciate the damage sun exposure does to their skin and eyes. They are all about now, and the power of peer pressure can t be underestimated. Staff remind and encourage students all day to be SunSmart. Please help us to protect your daughter by reminding her that it s very important to use all sun-avoidance measures. One or two are not enough, particularly in Central Queensland. We all need to slip, slop, slap, seek and slide. The girls had a great day last year. Let s aim for another fun day with no sunburn to leave us feeling sad and sore. The information on this form is confidential and is only shared when appropriate. If you wish to discuss the privacy of your daughter s information, please contact the Health Centre ( ). We require Medicare card details, including the expiry date and your daughter s reference number, to enable us to facilitate medical services for your child. The reference number is the number in front of your daughter s name.

5 DIRECTOR LEARNING John Fry Assignment skills handbook One of the most common issues that I see as Director of Learning is the difficulty that many students have in organising themselves in terms of assignments. As a result, Girls Grammar has introduced the use of the Assignment and Research Skills Handbook for all students in Year 7 to 12 in This book will be made available as part of the Care program where teachers will outline in detail the skills and planning required to be an academically successful secondary school student. The book is an excellent summary of what is required and is outlined in an easy to understand manner. Lee Bartlem and Mark Savage for lending their expertise to the camp experience. ART CLUB Nora Hanasy-Cheers Visual Arts Cocurricular ART CLUB has begun and our focus this Semester is RECYCLING. The students will be creating beautiful artwork out of After School Mathematics Tutoring In the Semester 1 Senior newsletter I wrote that Mathematics tutoring was available in the Library Resource Centre from 3.00pm to 4.30pm each Monday, Wednesday and. The actual times of these sessions is from 3.00pm to 4.00pm. I apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused. QCS Conference The Year 12 students who will be sitting the Queensland Core Skills (QCS) test in September have just returned from our preparatory conference at Byfield. The students attended sessions on various topics including How OPs are calculated, Understanding your brain, Numeracy Skills for the QCS test, How to deconstruct a Writing Task and Understanding Visual Literacy. The girls did their first full practise tests of the Writing Task and Short Response papers. The also completed a Multiple Choice test. All three tests have been sent to a specialist QCS marking company and we await results with anticipation. recycled materials including brooches, hair pins, wall art and sculptural pieces. Some examples of the brooches we have begun working on: We are beginning work on some amazing wall art. If anyone in the Girls Grammar family has small old metal bits and pieces they don t need anymore, please donate them to us and our cause. You may drop them off to student services. We are looking for old washers, nuts and bolts, nails, old locks and keys, broken jewellery, metal buttons, bicycle chains, old cds, old phones, cameras, any small metal offcuts. This is what we are trying to achieve: The results will allow staff to determine individual and cohort strengths and areas for improvement. This information will inform the preparation process which will be run in small groups and taught by expert specialist teachers. The girls also found time to relax and enjoyed activities including swimming and canoeing. Many found the social highlight to be the night time jam session. Indeed at times there were more people singing on the stage than watching from the audience. I want to thank the girls for their generous and enthusiastic participation. Special thanks go to Christie Dey, Kathryn Gilmore,

6 FROM OUR CHEF Mark Thompson Fruitful delights What s a serve? We all know we should eat 3 serves of fruit a day but what do nutritionists mean by serve? One serve of fruit is Fabulous fruit 1 medium sized piece (apple, mandarin, pear) 2 small pieces (apricot, plum, kiwi fruit) 1 cup diced fresh fruit or fruit salad 1 cup canned fruit pieces, drained ½ cup (125ml) fruit juice Scientific research has revealed a wealth of natural cures and preventatives in a piece of fruit. Different fruit contain a range of important benefits which help fight various conditions and illness when eating regularly.
