From the Head of Primary - Week 4, Term 3 2018


A Message from our Primary Captain – Emanuel FerisaFerisa Emanuel

When you feed, you flourish!  Nurture the things that you want to grow.  At Coomera Anglican College, we enjoy many opportunities to “Love Life Together”.  We work hard, and we learn and flourish as we grow together.


It is important that we continue to make the most of our College days – time passes so quickly!  Keep doing your best, meet your challenges head on and remember that growth becomes more meaningful when we face our challenges with conviction.  Never give up!


Farewell and Best Wishes, Ms Kayla Kuhnemann

Ms Kayla Kuhnemann leaves our College at the end of next week, to begin a new chapter in her life.
Ms Kuhnemann has contributed to our community with energy, kindness and good humour.   During her time at Coomera Anglican College, she has shown great compassion for the students she has taught, and she has not only nurtured the individuality in the students under her care, but she has encouraged their curiosity and uniqueness as well.  Throughout almost 5 years of service, Ms Kuhnemann has taught both Year 3 and Prep, and she has done so with enduring enthusiasm and deep respect and admiration for all of her students.  Ms Kuhnemann’s contribution to Coomera Anglican College has been significant, she will be missed by us all.  Best wishes, Kayla! 


Public Speaking Competition

This week, we had the privilege of observing the finals of the Prep – Year 3 Ruth Parlett Public Speaking Competition.  Each student spoke with articulation, poise and confidence.  Again, I am prompted to say how proud I am of the efforts of our young children.  Being a public speaker takes great courage and significant practice.  We were all amazed by the level of confidence, vocabulary and presentation that the students displayed.  

The finals of the Years 4 – 6 Public Speaking will be at that Principal’s Assembly on Monday 6 August at 8.45am in the IGC.  Come along and see our finalists perform!






Ready to Welcome our Grandparents

The students of the Early Learning Centre and the Primary Campus are ready to welcome Grandparents to the College on Friday 17 August.  Grandparents’ Day is always one of our most enjoyable days at the College and we all look forward to again hosting our College grandparents for the annual Book Week and Book Character Parade.  
Please note that if your child does not have a grandparent who can attend, the invitation is also extended to a special friend to be an honorary grandparent for the day.


Before College

Please remember that students who are not involved in co-curricular activity and arrive at the College before 8.00am must go to OSHC.  If students arrive between 8.00am and 8.15am, they should go to the undercover area (Prep-Year 5) or Year 5/6 Block (Year 6) where they can wait, with supervision from College staff.   Students should not be waiting outside classrooms during this time.  At 8.15am students then move to their classrooms.  


Some Reminders

Punctuality - Students are asked to ensure that they are at school on time each day.  
Uniform and Grooming  – Please help by encouraging your child(ren) to keep shoes polished and uniform and grooming within the guidelines of the College expectations.
