Our Moggill State School Playgroup has been nominated for a Playgroup QLD Award this year. This is our 3rd year of being nominated. Our very successful Playgroup operates every Wednesday with over 80 children registered. Mrs Tanya Suffolk and her band of helpers are amazing in ensuring our children receive a high quality program. Congratulations to the Playgroup parents, children, helpers and staff for your hard work, dedication and commitment to the program.

Congratulations to Dominic from Year 2 who achieved an ICAS Science Medal. ICAS Medals are awarded to students who achieve in the top 1% of their age cohort for a particular ICAS subject.

Not only did Dominic achieve in the TOP 1% for Queensland, Dominic also achieved the highest Year 2 mark for Science in Australia. An amazing effort!

Over the past couple of months, our school Admin team have worked hard to compile a 2019 expenditure forecast for each year level. This information should only be used as a guide and NOT as the actual amount required for the year. There may be other incidental costs throughout the 2019 school year that we have not allowed for (especially with incursions or excursions).
You can access this information on our school website. This document may change from time to time as it will be updated as necessary.

Yesterday our Year 1 – Year 3 students showcased their musical talents during their end of year concert. We had many parents and family member attend the concerts, celebrating with students a terrific year of learning and development.

Thank you to Mrs Jo Mills, Mrs Tanya Gallagher and the Year 1 – Year 3 staff for their organisation and hard work in delivering a terrific concert.

We look forward to the Senior Concert tonight, commencing at 6.30pm in our school hall.

Our Student Leadership Program for 2019 commenced a number of weeks ago with current Year 5 students given the opportunity to apply for the 2019 School Captain position. We received over 35 applications from students. Students were interviewed over two days with 12 students shortlisted to give a speech to Year 4 and Year 5 students and school staff based on why they would be the best person for School Captain at MSS. Over the past fortnight, speeches were conducted, with students voting on their preferred choices. I am pleased to announce that the MSS School Captains for 2019 will be:

  • Liezel-Marie R
  • Jake O
  • Dilmi G
  • Mitchell M

Congratulations to these students.

Students are now given the opportunity to apply for House, Choir, Band and Strings Captaincy positions. This process will continue into Term 1 2019.

As we make arrangements for the 2019 school year, we continue planning classes for next year. We have received many emails from parents regarding considerations for their child's class allocation.

It is important to highlight to parents that not all requests are able to be met

Our planning teams are working hard to ensure classes are compiled carefully, with the needs of students being our first priority. This is an important process that takes a great deal of planning and time. Class allocations is a school priority and responsibility, and one that we take seriously. We have limited year level class allocation space (4 to 5 classes per year level) and place students into classes based on their identified needs and the needs of others.

We forecast our enrolments to fluctuate throughout the early parts of 2019 (including over the holiday break and January Student Free Days). With this in mind, as well as ensuring we provide accurate class lists for 2019, finalised class lists will be available for parents to view on Friday 25 January from 3pm. These lists will be available outside the school office on the windows. We will also email parents with your child's class allocation on the same afternoon.

November 29

Students will receive report cards via email on Wednesday 12 December. If you have changed your email address please inform the office and we will make the necessary changes.

Please be advised that our Semester 2 report cards will include the following information:

  • An achievement and effort mark for each learning area.
  • A learning statement for each learning area.
  • An overall behaviour mark.
  • Individualised comments on your child will be included in the general comment.

In conjunction with our P&C Association and School Council, we have been working on a new play area located between E-Block and the Hall. A consultation meeting earlier in the year helped to provide information to develop a design plan. This plan has been used to create a final plan.
Our final design plan is now available to review and will be located on signage located in two locations outside the Hall.

We invite our school community to review the design and provide feedback by Wednesday 6 December 2018.
