Morning Arrivals

25 May 2018

While we recognise that mornings can be a busy time, it has come to our attention that we have some students who are regularly late for class. It is important that girls are on time for class so that they can settle in for the day before getting involved in their learning.

Girls in Years One to Six are able to arrive from 8:00am when there is a teacher on duty in the Junior Years Courtyard. Prep classrooms open at 8.20am. The morning bell is rung at 8.25am and class starts promptly at 8.30am.

The Glennie Community Kindergarten is looking forward to holding the Art Show and Exhibition on Friday 1 June in the Glennie Art and Design studio.

Please contact Mr Warren directly via email warrens@glennie.qld.edu.au if you can assist in any way or are able to donate something for our raffles. A huge thank you to the Morton family (parents of Georgie), who have donated all of the wine for this event. This is very much appreciated.

It’s for girls of 10 to 15 years, it’s full of creativity, it’s quality (of course) and because there is a lot of special one-on-one time, the class size is limited.

Junior Years Carpark

16 March 2018

Parents are reminded that the roadway on Anzac Avenue leading into the Junior Years carpark, has a NO STANDING sign. If parents queue there, they risk a fine if police are patrolling the area.

Parents who wait at the drop-off zone cause a backlog at the carpark entrance, placing other parents at risk of a fine. Please support us by moving on if your daughter is not ready to be collected when you drive up to the drop-off zone. If she is there, please be quick getting her into your vehicle and moving off.
