Almost a wrap for Thangool

TERM 4 at Thangool School has been an extremely busy time of learning, growing and opportunity.

The last two weeks of school presents our school community with a wide range of emotions.

We farewell our Year 6 students as they move into high school but we look back with pride at how much they have grown and matured from their early years at Thangool.

Next week, our Year 5 class will present their leadership speeches as they prepare to move into Year 6 and be the leaders of our school.

We look forward to welcoming our new Preps and their families for the start of 2020.

Parents wishing to enrol their child at Thangool School are encouraged to do so as soon as possible.

Swimming carnival

OUR swimming carnival was held on Friday, November 15.

Kroombit House won the day.

Special thanks to Ebony Nancarrow, Biloela Bluefins and all the parents who volunteered to assist on the day.

We had several records broken on the day.

Congratulations to Ben Hicks, Mackenna Goodger, Miley Johnson, Jamen Goodger and Sam Hicks on their fantastic swims.

We wish all of our students competing in the Moore Stephens Interschool Swimming Carnival the very best.

Graduation night

NEXT week we will hold our Graduation Night for the Year 6 class of 2019.

This is a special night where our current Year 6 students are the stars of the night.

Awards are presented for Academic Consistency Boy/Girl, Sportsperson Boy/Girl, All Rounder, Cultural, Citizenship and Education Bursary.

We would like to thank our sponsors, Thangool INC, Bob Moschioni, Masonic Lodge, Fiona Byrne and Saint Vincent De Paul.

Sporting success

DURING the term, we had two teams from Thangool School attend the T20 Woolworths Blast Cricket Capricornia Region Final.

Our girls team finished in third place and our boys team finished in seventh place.

We have two teams travelling to Brisbane in January to compete in the Brisbane International School Tennis Red Ball competition.

We wish all players the very best and know that they will enjoy and learn from the experience.


OUR Year 6 class has been participating in a values program with Chappy Laura and Chappy Dan.

The program encompasses VITAL (Integrated through action based learning) where students participated in a range of team building activities to help build resilience, and help students to realise their future potential.

The program will finish with a trip to the Capricorn Caves during the last week.
