Dear Parents and Caregivers,

Capra_Chris.JPGFriday Night witnessed a spectacular event in the form of Dance Night. It was great to see the students able to exhibit their skills in front of a large audience at HOTA.  After a year of disrupted rehearsals and uncertainty about the possibility of public performances, our students and staff delivered a brilliant night of polished performances. Well done to the students and staff who have worked hard in the lead up to this event. We were delighted to receive some wonderful feedback this morning on the night from Mr and Mrs Garner.

To Whom it May Concern

On Friday night, we attended the Dance Night for Palm Beach Currumbin State High at HOTA.  I cannot find enough superlatives to adequately describe how much we enjoyed the night.  Congratulations to everyone who was involved in this fabulous Dance Night.

Our granddaughter, Millie Elliott, is in Year 8  and she is part of this incredible Dance Program at your school so we were thrilled to be invited to attend. Never in my life (I’m 73 and my husband is 79) have we ever witnessed performances so fantastic, moving, extremely powerful and so entertaining.

We moved up from Sydney this year so it was the first time we have attended a PBC Dance Night and it definitely won’t be the last time.  It is a credit to every single performer, their teachers and all the people who made this night such a success. It must have taken so much work and hours and hours of practise to put this show together.

I cannot adequately express the impact each and every dance had on us. The choreography, themes and actual clips were brilliant. It was the most professional night we have been to and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.

Having lived in Sydney during the time that Victor Chang was murdered in the failed extortion attempt, it was incredibly touching and heartbreaking to see this performance so brilliantly portrayed.  It brought back very vivid and real memories of that very sad time in 1991. To see the film and hear Victor Chang’s actual words on that fateful day left a profound impact on us.

The” September 11” performance was another of those heartbreaking times that was so professionally put together. I’m sure there was not a dry eye in the entire theatre, it was very moving. To hear the actual people talking and the voice of that little girl who lost her Daddy was something I will never forget.

So many of the acts were extremely thought provoking and very powerful. “Grandma’s Hands” was brilliant as was “Waka Waka”, “Ted Bundy”, “Marilyn Monroe”, the one depicting bipolar – so many relevant topics in our society.

We have been to many dance eisteddfods and dance concerts but never have we been to one so brilliantly undertaken with the actual recordings of various people and the movies on the wall as they were being performed, nothing but brilliant!

We just want to thank PBC for a most enjoyable night and one we will never forget. I wish there was a video of them so we could watch them all again. Every performer gave 100% effort and your school has many very talented dancers.

The entire program was brilliant, all 29 items.  The finale was excellent with the photograph of each student shown on the screen.

Please accept our congratulations to all concerned on a fantastic night.

Regards Carol & Stan Garner

With the recent changes to laws regarding Vapes and E Cigarettes, the school last week sent out an update to how it will work with students, who are in possession of / using / dealing, in applying the Student Code of Conduct. The Qld Police Service and Department of Health continue to work with the school in restricting the supply of Vapes and E Cigarettes that our students are accessing. It is important that all parents and caregivers speak with their children about the disciplinary consequences of vaping at school and the health concerns that research is now indicated will occur in teenagers who are vaping (see last week’s letter for health articles). 

This week will see a lot of engaging extra-curricular activities for the whole school. Today and tomorrow see the Staff play the Students in Soccer and Touch with Basketball and Netball to follow. Wednesday will see the winning House announced at the House Champion Cup assembly. Anyone who has attended an Optima Assembly will know the excitement that the House competitions generate. Finally, the Year 12s finish their scheduled timetabled classes this Thursday (although they have alternate classes and exams for another five weeks).

Welcome back for Term 4. Junior secondary is expecting a successful and productive term working with our students. Term 4 is closely linked with our key celebrations for the year as we are sure to achieve wonderful results both in the classroom and out. The next nine weeks will pass very quickly for us all. Whilst some adjustments will be made to celebrations we look forward to sharing these events with you whilst aligning with COVID safe guidelines.

This week we have covered our not negotiables again with our students at assemblies, we like to take this time each term to remind students of our high expectations for their attendance, classroom effort and behaviour. We have linked these messages to our Optima Code – Be safe, Be respectful and Be a learner. There is also a separate communication that has come to parents via email in relation to the growing concern of students using illegal Vapes or e-cigarettes. I would encourage you to read this email and contact the school is you have any questions.


Please be aware our planning and preparation for 2022 is well and truly underway.

  • Review of class composition including gathering student and teacher input on this including our incoming Year 6 cohort.
  • Check in on literacy and numeracy with ACER testing being completed by all year levels in first few weeks to assist planning and supporting students in strengths and weaknesses.
  • Review and enhancement of our literacy and numeracy classroom routines.

It was an honour for our PBC Leo’s club to be awarded the Leo Club of the Year fore the period 2020-2021.

This month PBC Leo’s donated a total of $600 to the PBC Support Group; $200 for each cohort, junior, middle and senior. Ms Condon came to our meeting to thank us for our donation. We also have donated $400 to the Fred Hollows Foundation.

Earlier this year we made a donation to the Tallebudgera State School for their team building hike for their school leaders. The Principal, Mr Burges, came to our meeting to thank us for our donation and talk about how it went.

Secretary of the Palm Beach Currumbin

Leo’s Club 2021

On the last day of term three, State Minister for the Environment and The Great Barrier Reef, Hon. Meaghan Scanlon, visited PBC for a tour of our Sustainability Shed and an overview of our sustainability program. A group of PBC students demonstrated the industrial composting machine that has been in operation here since the end of 2020. To date, we have processed more than two tonnes of food waste (2095.49kg) through the machine, generating over 200kg of compost that has been used by the school and the Southern Beaches Community Garden at Tugun. Of this, 1066.75kg of food waste has come from the school canteens, Trade Training Centre and Home Economics kitchens.

As a part of the composting program, PBC has also been collecting food scraps from the local community through a bin placed outside Gecko House on Thrower drive. Volunteers from the Southern Beaches Community Garden collect the bin and deliver it to school where the food waste is processed through our composter. As of 8th October, we have collected 1,028kg of food waste from the local community.

If you would like to compost your food waste but don’t have a compost bin at home, consider dropping your food scraps into the bin next to the shipping container outside Gecko House. Our machine can process all food waste, including items you wouldn’t normally place in a home compost bin, such as bread, dairy products, meat, fish and chicken (including bones) and citrus peel. The machine cannot process large animal bones, oyster or scallop shells or cooking oil. The composter has a capacity of 100kg of food waste per day, using heat and bacterial digestion to turn this into 10-20kg of compost within 24 hours. Our aim is to use the machine to divert all food waste, including student lunch scraps, away from landfill and instead use them to enrich the gardens around the school.

Park Safe will operate on school days at student drop-off and pick-up times focusing on pedestrian areas around schools. If a vehicle is found to be parked illegally the City will issue an infringement notice to the registered vehicle owner by post.

Offences to be aware of:

  • stopping 20 metres before or 10 metres after a sign posted crossing
  • stopping 20 metres before or 10 metres after a bus stop
  • stopping within 10 metres of an intersection or corner
