Unfortunately, we have had 2 bicycles stolen from the racks at school today. We strongly recommend supplying locks and reminding your children to chain their bikes. Thank you, CPS.
Wow, wow, wow! That’s the reaction from last night’s performance of the Churchlands PS choir and amazing vocalists, Rosie and Katana, at the West Australian Government Schools Music Society (WAGSMS) concert series. We are so very proud of you all, your talent was outstanding. Huge accolades to Mr Howesmith for developing the students to such a high musical level.
At CPS we have always been involved in many ways with our local community and ensuring our children have the opportunity to give back to others less fortunate than many of us, it is a tradition we are so very proud of. We need to acknowledge our students and staff who continue to ‘give’ and have great experiences, some are celebrated below.
We have been working with the Cambridge Rotary for the last few years and have built a wonderful relationship. Mr Jeremy Woods from Rotary comes to school every week and supports the Environmental Officers develop their leadership skills.
Next Wednesday we have two of our year 6 students participating in the Rotary Four-Way Junior Speaking Contest with includes other district schools. This is a great way for our senior students to build their confidence through public speaking.
Churchlands Primary School has been involved in the annual Quairading tree planting project for nearly 15 years. Massive accolades to Mrs Samsa who has sustained and organises this event every year. A huge thank you to a number of students and their parents who volunteered their time (Friday and Saturday) to help plant trees to support the environmental impact on farming land.
Massive congratulations to Mrs Sheree Samsa and the CPS Environmental team who were nominated as equal second in the National Woolworths Junior Landcare award category. The team received an honourable mention and $500! It is a recognition of the huge commitment and dedication of Mrs Samsa and the group of amazing staff, students and parents to the CPS Environmental Program. It is a huge part of the Churchlands PS community and is highly respected by many other communities.
And to throw in a bit more fun we had Book Week! So much fun was had by all! The teachers captivated the children in the afternoon reading sessions in the different ‘worlds’ around the school capped off by the dress up parade at assembly.
