MOGGILL SPORTS PARK

I was honoured to attend the opening of the new Moggill District Sports Park last Saturday morning on behalf of Moggill State School and other schools within the wider Pullenvale Ward. The facilities, officially opened by Lord Mayor Graham Quirk, is a fantastic asset to the Moggill community.


It was wonderful to hear that a parent in our school community, Mr Rich Pidgeon (President of the Moggill Mustangs Junior AFL Club), was acknowledged for being a driving force in the planning and development of the project. I had the pleasure of speaking with Rich and his enthusiasm and passion for promoting children to participate in sports is inspiring. It's great to know that we have people like Rich in our community making a positive difference.


As a school, we look forward to using the new sporting fields and strengthening our partnerships with local sporting clubs, such as the Moggill Mustangs.

STRONG PARTNERSHIPS: APPOINTMENTS WITH THE SCHOOL

Parents and community members play an important role in their children's education and a strong partnership between parents and schools enriches the learning experience.
There are many opportunities, both formal and informal, for parents to find out about their children's progress at school. Should you need to make an appointment with the school, please see your child's teacher in the first instance. They know your child well and will work with you to support your child's academic, social and emotional growth.
If there are any issues that you feel have not been resolved, please phone the Office on 3202 0444 to make an appointment with the School leader in charge of your child's level:

You can also make an appointment to see me as the School Principal nfree9@eq.edu.au.

SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT PRIORITIES 2019

Our school's clear purpose of EVERY Student, EVERY Day – Learning and Achieving is engrained in all of our learning programs. Our school goal/priorities for 2019 are directed towards:

Ensuring every student is literate, numerate, curious and connected to the world around them

To achieve this, our sharp and narrow improvement focus for 2019 is:

  • Writing improvement for EVERY student
  • Numeracy teaching and learning review

As with previous years, we will also look to improve communication across all areas of the school community and to further staff capability in delivering an inquiry-based approach to learning through the Curiosity and Powerful Learning Framework.

CONGRATULATIONS

Congratulations to all members of our vibrant school community on a highly professional and well-prepared start to the academic year. The Moggill spirit is evident and has provided us with a memorable first two weeks.

The manner with which the students have settled into their routines is a testament to the planning and professionalism of the staff and should be embraced as a wonderful acknowledgement of the support provided by parents and caregivers. I continue to be impressed when I see that every student is wearing correct school uniform. I'd like to thank all parents/caregivers for setting high expectations regarding the wearing of uniform as it helps to set your child up for success.

Our Prep students continue to adjust to the school routine and have shown an eagerness to learn. Parents /caregivers, we thank you for your support in preparing your child(ren) to be 'school-ready'.

We have high expectations for all students at Moggill State School (MSS) and believe that 2019 will be a rewarding year for students who commit to their learning and strive to do their best each day.

2019 EXPENDITURE FORECAST PER YEAR LEVEL

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.
