Boneo Buzz: 18th November

Dear Parents and Carers,

A huge shout out to the following families who supported our Working Bee last Friday. Dave and Jess Hennessey – Curl Construction, built a stunning screen to protect our composting system.

Luana Iacuone with Sam in Prep, moved mountains of mulch and rocks. Brett Stephens came early and cleared all of our long grass. Cara Black-Stephens with Lachi and Jordan, along with Chelsea Tyler, Benji and Dylan, created our stunning new garden at our memorial rock. Caz Skinner, the Robertson and Reid families planted, moved rocks and mulched. Katie Reid also took all of our green waste away.

We still have mountains of mulch to spread and some weeding so please come and help at any time that is convenient for you, perhaps gather some friends and come an hour earlier in the afternoon, just sign in at the office and we can direct you. Many hands make a huge difference.


Your child may discover online inappropriate material unintentionally, or they may go looking for it. Either way, you can play a role.  

For young children, accidentally encountering inappropriate material can be confusing or distressing. At worst it can be harmful. Older kids and teenagers may be more curious and actively seek out inappropriate content online. For them, the risk is that exposure to graphic, violent or misleading messages and gender stereotypes could give them the wrong idea about relationships. 

Please visit the following site for support on a range of topics. If your child uses a device at home you need to educate yourself and have conversations with your child at an early age. Online safety | eSafety Commissioner

Additionally, I encourage all parents to attend this Dr Michael Carr-Gregg event. It is not to be missed. I will be attending, come join me.

Please Register for this event.

Snapshot of Learning

Boneo Color Run

First Lego League Competition

On Saturday, a group of TREC Robo Tech students went on an excursion to the First Lego League competition.  During the competition you program robots to do different challenges to gain points and hopefully win the trophy. We won our coach, Hugo, the best coach award by saying he was caring, thoughtful and inclusive. He always keeps everyone involved and busy while still making it fun. Even though we did not win, we still had a heap of fun programming and sticking to our core values of teamwork, respecting other teams, and the most important one, having lots of fun. We hope next year others can do it too because we had so much fun.
