Schools do not exist in isolation – they are often the central hub of their community. Schools need to leverage their position in the community to work together with other community members, for the benefit of all.
Parent and Community Engagement framework p5
Robina State School aims to develop community partnerships that benefit both the school and the community organisation. This week I would like to provide information about the opportunities available through Robina State School and the positive community partnerships that are operating.
BROADBEACH CATS AFL
Parent support for interschool sport is necessary for it to proceed. Robina State School is fortunate to have parents who value school sport and make the effort to both encourage and support their child to participate.
Last week the AFL team was fortunate to have a set of playing jumpers donated by BROADBEACH CATS AFL. The students in the Robina SS AFL team would like to thank the family that organised this and the Broadbeach CATS AFL for this support.
Robina Group Making Music at Robina State School
Five Robina Group-sponsored honour boards now take pride of place in our Performing Arts Centre recording the names of those students who have achieved outstanding success in the music performance program.
Nicole Elkins, Senior Instrumental Music Specialist, captured the spirit of what has been achieved as a result of the community partnership with Robina Group when she wrote;
Please pass on our thanks to everybody at the Robina Group in regards to their sponsorship of our new Shields and Honour Boards. It was wonderful to watch the excited faces of our students when they saw their names on the new shields and honour boards. The new awards, along with fantastic student performances, ensured that we had a great concert.
Woolworths – Robina
Woolworths at Robina donated several trays of fruit to the school last week when they delivered the rewards from the 2013 Earn and Learn Program. The fruit was used as part of daily tuckshop orders. Each child who ordered tuckshop received a piece of fruit with their order.
The 2013 Earn and Learn rewards were used to obtain a set of ukuleles for the music program. The balance was used to obtain Lego construction material for use by students in the Positive Play Program.
Coles – Robina
Coles at Robina will be celebrating 100 years of Coles in Australia by hosting a range of events. One of the events planned is an excursion to their store including a tour to see how a grocery store operates. Other events are being planned and Robina State School is looking forward to helping Coles at Robina celebrate their 100th birthday.
