Welcome to Good Counsel Primary........

Welcome to our school.  At Good Counsel Primary we value a strong partnership with
families and encourage the building of relationships within a caring and safe community. 
It is our belief that children more easily achieve their true potential when parents
feel comfortable being active and involved in the life of the school.

Our teachers and support staff are highly motivated and dedicated professionals who
provide a rich learning environment for their students.

There is much pride in our rich history and traditions and we are inspired that our
students will be empowered to take their place in the world, contributing positively
to the life of the Church and the wider society.

Together we are continually striving for excellence in education within a Christian environment.

Good Counsel Primary School places a strong emphasis on respect for the individual and
the rights of others.

We look forward to establishing a long and happy association with you as we work together
to educate your child spiritually, academically, physically, socially and emotionally.


Mr. Liam Kenny
Good Counsel Primary Principal

Dear Parents,

This is coming to you from Longreach, where the Yr 7 students campers are presently experiencing the outback and the great outdoors. From the Texas Longhorns, to the Agricultural College, each day brings so many new adventures.

‘J.R .and his brother R.J’;

 

 

 



the buggy ride and a chat with Michael at Texas Long-horns.

Sunrise at Longreach and Boeing, Boeing at the QANTAS Museum.

Back at school, some of the lower school classes participated in the Ambulance Safety Talk with Innisfail Paramedic— Glen Rigano during his visit on Monday.

 

 

 

 


We’ll be back with lots of stories on Friday afternoon.

Regards
Liam

Good Counsel Primary School Administration is about to undergo a transformation in the upgrade to its office systems—both financial and student. This change is being undertaken across the Cairns Diocese. GCPS is set down for the final two weeks of Term 3.
During this time, both Mrs Dunne and Mrs Archer will be attending training and assisting in the smooth migration of our data to the new system. Mrs Julie Cross will be ‘holding the fort’ in their absence. Please make her feel welcome.
The new system will be taken up at the commencement of Term 4. We ask for your patience whilst our Administration staff are in the ’learning’ phase and understand you may encounter slight delays. We apologise in advance.
Due to this new system, we now request that parents complete the ‘Update to Emergency Contacts’ form, taking special note of Legal surname/first names and DOB for any contacts provided e.g. Jenny—legal name, Jennifer. This is a requirement of the new system to ensure duplication of contacts are minimal.
In anticipation of the upgrade, we ask that all forms be completed in full and returned to the classroom teacher or directly to Administration by no later than Friday, 29th August, 2014.
We thank you in advance for your co-operation and assistance in this challenging time ahead. Look out for more updates in the coming weeks.

Liam KENNY—PRINCIPAL
