Glenden state school

Firstly I would like to thank

everyone for the warm and

courteous welcome that my

family and I have received on

our arrival here in glenden.

to share with you a little of my

background, I have spent the

past three years as Deputy

Principal at Mackay state High

school. We had close to 1000

students and 100 staff so I am

enjoying the personal nature and

rapport that comes with working

within a close knit community at

glenden state school. My wife,

Lisa will also be working at the

school two days per week. Our

eldest son Lucas is in Prep whilst

Blake and Dane are still a couple

of years off joining us at school.

Prior to moving to Mackay,

my wife and I have spent time

teaching in Innisfail, Moranbah,

Biloela and in the international

port of London, England.

We have also had another

staffing change to share with

you. We congratulate and

farewell Cathy taylor who has

moved to Blackwater North

state school over the break to

take up the position of Deputy

Principal. Replacing Cathy is

sarah-Jane Clark. We realise the

wealth of talent, knowledge and

experience that we will lose with

the departure of Cathy and thank

her for the time and effort that

she has put into her role whilst

here at glenden state school.

On thursday 19th July glenden

state school participated in

“A Day for Daniel”. the Daniel

Morcombe Foundation was

established by Bruce & Denise

Morcombe in 2005 following

the tragic abduction and murder

of their son in December 2003.

glenden state school had the

privilege of Daniel’s parents

Bruce & Denise attend our

school as part of this event.

students were encouraged to

wear red in recognition of this

day and we held a full school

Principal Cameron Wayman, Bruce & Denise Morcombe, glenden Adopt-a-Cop

Brenton O’Brien

Day for Daniel students were encouraged to wear RED in support of this event

parade with many parents

and community members in

attendance. Bruce & Denise

spoke to the students in regard

to staying safe in our community.

they also recommended many

great tools that children and

parents can utilise to recognise

a potentially harmful or unsafe

situation. We thank Miss Natalie

Richardson for organising this

event for our community.

the 200 Club is coming at us

at a rapid rate. glenden state

school continually appreciates

the support that we get from

the community and this event

is the main fundraiser for our

P&C. All funds raised go directly

back into the school to improve

the learning outcomes and

opportunities for our students.

If you don’t already have your

ticket, get in contact with the

school office before Friday 10th

August to purchase your ticket.

It is exciting to see our next

intake of students making

regular visits to the school as

part of our Pre-Prep transition

program. Madonna and

Hayley from C&K with our Prep

teacher Mrs Leanne Kulmar

have constructed an engaging

and informative program that

familiarises our 2013 Prep

students with our school.

As part of the Flying start Pilot,

which sees the Year 7 students

become part of High school, we

have been provided with a new

general Learning Area and a new

Flexible Learning Area. this was

meant to arrive over the June/

July holiday break however due

to the rain, delivery was delayed.

the construction phase is well

and truly underway and our

staff are continually undertaking

Professional Development within

their roles preparing themselves

for this transition.

renae’s shave for a Cure

My quest to take part in

the World’s greatest shave

started a few years ago. Apart

from being on my ‘Bucket List’

(as something I could positively

put my energy into and raise

much needed funds for vital

research) I had also personally

witnessed a number of families

close to me have to endure the

wrath of Leukaemia.

why this cause is so


today 31 Australians will be

given the devastating news that

they have leukaemia, lymphoma,

myeloma or a related blood

disorder. that’s more than

11,500 people this year.

Although survival rates are

improving, blood cancers like

these are the second biggest

cause of cancer death in


the Leukaemia Foundation

receives no ongoing government

funding, so supporting this event

makes our Vision to Cure and

Mission to Care possible.

the money I raised will go

towards research, which is

needed to find better treatments

and cures for leukaemia,

lymphomas, myeloma and

related blood disorders.

Your donations and

sponsorship will also support

families when they need it

most, providing leukaemia,

lymphoma and myeloma

patients with a free home-away-

from-home near hospital during

their treatment. It will also mean

that they can be transported to

appointments and provide as

much practical assistance and

emotional support as we can,

all free of charge.

I made the decision on saturday

10th March. the shave was to

take place the following Friday

16th March. so I plastered it all

over Facebook and sent e-mails

to everyone on my contact list,

to round up as many sponsors

as I could in a week. About

1.36 seconds later I received

a text message from Hayley

Barker asking “just how much

hair do you think you’ll have for

the wedding??”..... 10 weeks

later!!! Oops, it was then clear

that I had forgotten one very

important date that I would

most definitely need my hair

for... her wedding in late May.

Club 7pm

so the shave was set for Friday

1st June. I had set myself a

goal of $10,000 and 11 short

weeks to achieve this.

Presently I have raised

just under $11,000 with

donations still coming in.

Donators have included

Xstrata Newlands and C-Crew

CFMEu social Club. All other

donations have been kindly

donated from individuals.

I ran a Raffle on the night with 3

prizes 1st Prize was 5 tickets to

the Cowboys Vs tigers game

(kindly donated by steve &

Heather Clarkson) and a $100

Personal training card pass,

won by shari Armstrong, 2nd

Prize was a gorgeous Leather

Handbag (kindly donated by

Connie Rothery of Harlow

Collections) and a $100 Personal

training card pass, won by

Queensland Fire

& rescue services

Please note that the QFrs will be

undertaking burn-offs in the next 2 – 3

months within the Glenden township.

Jaime Maltby, 3rd prize was a

Hair Voucher from Wiltwood

Hair (kindly donated by Melda

Wiltshire) and a $100 Personal

training card pass (kindly

donated by Kerri Prior), won by

tove sparks.

I was and still am completely

overwhelmed and amazed

by everyone’s generosity.

I even had a young high

schooler donate $200 of his

hard earned cash (which I’m

sure he could use on other

things). I would like to take

this opportunity to sincerely

thank from the bottom of

my heart, everyone that

supported me both on

the night and in the weeks

leading up to my shave. Also

to my family who all thought

I’d gone mad, (especially

scott, who grew his hair as I

was about to shave mine).

As a courtesy to all residents, the QFRs will arrange for

the station siren to sound 3 times a half hour prior to

burn-off commencing.

If any glenden residents have allergies, please take the

necessary precautions.

Please ensure that all residents keep well clear of any area

that is undergoing a burn-off.

Ballet and contemporary

students were also very lucky

to attend workshops with Miss

Lane. Miss Lane choreographed

pieces towards our end of year

concert. We thank Miss Lane

for travelling to glenden and

for her wonderful work in the

exams and workshops.

workshop with Miss Lizzie and

Miss Nat for a big group number

“Mock” Exam

Our Pre-primary Exam students with Miss Lane. Left to right: Miss Ruth Lane, Poppy-Jo

Nobes, Ayla Markcrow, Eloise Decker and taylah swanson

It has been a busy few weeks for the students of time to Dance. this year we decided to

introduce the students to Ballet and tap exams process. We invited Miss Ruth Lane to glenden

to examine the students. Miss Lane has extensive years of teaching, adjudicating and examining

experience, and is a founding member of the Central Queensland Dancers Company. Even

though we undertook ‘mock’ exams, Miss Lane did not compromise her high standards and

expectations just to pass our dancers. It is not in her professional interest to put her signature

to a dancer’s exam report if it is not up to RAD, or gWt examination standards. Miss Lane trains

teachers for the Royal Academy of Dance, and is aware of the standard dancers need to attain

to pass an official exam. Dance exams, like any exam, are very daunting. By offering Mock exams

we are offering different experiences to the students. students who wish to sit their exams would

need to travel away. this is also a fantastic opportunity for the students and teachers towards

personal development.

Exams that were offered this year follow the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) Ballet syllabus,

and the glenn Wood tap (gWt) syllabus. Both syllabi are taught, examined and recognised


All who participated in the Exams attended extra classes in preparation. there were sweat, tears

and sore muscles all around, and we are proud of all the students who participated. they worked

so hard and have shown HugE improvements. I thank Miss Mel and Miss Lizzy for their hard work

in preparing the students.

There are still places available for the 2012 year!

Classes available include…

� shooting stars Jazz (5 – 6 years of age)

� Junior Jazz (6-8 years of age)

� intermediate Jazz (9-12 years of age)

Also introducing a new class….

see the ladies events well supported, with singles, pairs, triples and

fours championships being contested. All champions for 2012 with be

presented at our Presentation Night later in the year.

Men’s pennants went well again this year with glenden finishing 2nd

in its group. It was very pleasing to see new faces playing pennant

and even more pleasing to fill teams every week comfortably. We

lost only one home game, and unfortunately, in the end this cost us

winning our section. A big thank you to the few ladies who helped out

with our pennants catering needs, and to Amber for her organisation

and efforts around the club.

State School Parents & Citizen’s annual fundraiser the “200 Club.” Come dressed in your finest, or maybe as your favourite

Hollywood Siren or Silver Screen Leading Man. It is a great opportunity for the whole community to not only get together

for a great night out but to support the Glenden State School P&C in providing funds to maintain great facilities and

resources for Glenden’s children. Being a small town, fundraising opportunities are limited so the “200 Club” is the most

important event on the P&C calendar to raise funds for the year.

The major cash prize draws of $5000, $2500 and $1000 are always a big draw for the event. Mackay band “Hot, Hot, Hot”

will entertain the crowd. Ticket purchases include dinner consisting of Canapés, sit down main meal and buffet dessert, drink

vouchers, dancing, and lots of fun and prize draws. Sam from Pixzel images will be there to capture the night’s frivolities.

Tickets cost $140.00 per couple ($70 single) and are available for purchase from the Glenden State School office (P: (07) 4964

2333). Can’t make it on the night – then purchase a $100 ticket which will still entitle you to be in the draw for the major cash

prizes. The Red Carpet will roll out at 6.30pm, so purchase your tickets and come and have a fantastic night out.

If you wish to keep the number you had last year, you need to purchase your ticket by next wednesday 18th July.

National tree Day is Australia’s

where kids and their families

can get outside and have fun.

It’s a safe day out for families,

perfect first steps to getting

Aussie children and families to

connect with nature.

the play that inspired the movie tHE FuLL MONtY

Five mates with only unemployment and a love of beer in common, realise there’s money to be made in

putting on a male strip review. they pitch the notion to hard case club owner Bernie and take tutelage from

the kindhearted glenda, in what women really want from a male stripper – and how to deliver it.

Ladies Night has been translated into twelve languages and is New Zealand’s most commercially successful

play – with eight sell-out tours of Britain and the u.K. And now, it comes to Mackay to wow audiences and

leave you in fits of laughter.

Ladies night is sure to leave you energised and ready to hit the town!
