Premier's Reading Challengehttp://www.stpeterscaboolture.qld.edu.au/community-news/Pages/Premier's-Reading-Challenge.aspxPremier's Reading Challenge<p>The Premier's Reading Challenge is an annual statewide initiative for state and non- state schools and home-educated students up to Year 9, and children enrolled in an early childhood centre or program. The challenge is not a competition but aims to improve literacy and encourage children to read widely for pleasure and learning. Children and students can participate in the challenge within their school, early childhood centre or as individual readers. For Prep — Year 9 students to successfully complete the challenge they must read or experience an allocated number of books based upon their year level during the reading period. Children and students who complete the challenge will have their efforts recognised through the receipt of a Certificate of Achievement signed by the Premier of Queensland.</p><p>We have registered our school for this year. Class teachers will distribute Reading Record Forms to their students and these need to be returned to your class teacher or Mrs Rose by the 26 August so that student’s names can be added to database for the issuing of certificates from the Queensland Premier. If students do not receive a Reading Record Form, they can be collected from Mrs Rose. More information about what is involved with the reading challenge can be found at <a href="https://readingchallenge.education.qld.gov.au/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noreferrer">Reading Challenge</a><br></p><p>​<br><br></p>

COVID Restrictionshttp://www.stpeterscaboolture.qld.edu.au/community-news/Pages/COVID-Restrictions.aspxCOVID Restrictions<p>​Our capacity to continue to prioritise having parents journey with us and be involved in community activities is dependent upon our compliance with current Qld Health and BCE guidelines. Whilst these are subject to change at any time, we ask parents to comply with the following:<br></p><p></p><ul><li>Do not attend our school site if you are unwell or have any cold/ flu like symptoms</li><li>Please register your visit via the QR code at school entrances</li><li>Ensure social distancing from all non family/ household members</li><li>Visitors should not gather in groups</li><li>Carry a mask and wear when social distancing is not possible</li><li>Limit to six parents in any room at one time- please wait outside classroom until numbers allow access</li><li>Please be considerate of parents waiting and keep classroom visit brief</li><li>Use hand sanitiser on entry</li></ul><p></p><p>Recent events have shown us that expectations and restrictions can change at any time. Some parents have expressed concern that the use of QR codes and social distancing is being ignored. We ask that our community remain vigilant to ensure we are able to continue to welcome parents and visitors onto school grounds. Your understanding and compliance with these expectations is appreciated.<br><br>​<br></p><h3><strong>Assemblies and Parent Gatherings on School Grounds</strong></h3><p><br>Covid restrictions continue to impact our capacity to have families present for school events. At this stage it is necessary to cap numbers to ensure that our record keeping and social distancing of adults meets requirements. To this end we are not yet able to offer open invitations to assemblies and other school activities. This Friday 5th February  is our Covenant Liturgy and while we establish routines, this assembly will be for students only. Next week we will hold our Year 6 Ministry assembly to which our Year 6 parents will be invited. Subsequent Friday assemblies will be via invitation so that parents whose children have a role (class running assembly) or are receiving an award, will be advised in advance so they can attend if available. Whilst we work towards establishing the ‘new normal’ we ask that your presence within the school grounds is ‘purposeful’ to limit the number of parents on site at any one time. We also ask that parents refrain from gathering outside classrooms at pick up time. If there is a need to enter the school grounds for a student pick up or other purpose, please wait outside the school gates until after the bell. Your cooperation with this is greatly appreciated.<br>​​<br><br></p>
