Queanbeyan High School Visits CFPS

Queanbeyan High School will be working with Year 5 and students entering Year 7 at QHS on Monday 29 November. This will be a good opportunity to meet high school teachers and ask some questions about Queanbeyan High School.

High School Orientations 2022

Both Karabar HS and Queanbeyan HS will conduct their Year 7 2022 Orientation Program on Wednesday 8 December (Week 10). This will be an amazing opportunity for our students to see their high school and ask all the questions they want of their new set of teachers. We strongly recommend all our Year 6 students to attend their high school orientations on this date.

Small Schools Spelling Challenge

The Small Schools Spelling Challenge ran very smoothly last week. Our students participated really well. Each student needs to be congratulated on their amazing efforts. The junior competition was won by Grenfell PS, and the senior competition was won by a nail biting finish by Collector PS.

Public Speaking Competition

The Small Schools across out region competed for the Directors Shield. This competition saw our own Kayta and Lucy competing with other schools from across the region. Each of our girls spoke real well, and you can see their efforts now on Facebook. The adjudicators enjoyed Lucy's presentation so much, that she came first and will be the first student on our region to entered on the Director's Shield!

Flaherty Food Van

Our school will spend its final Friday going down to the Flaherty Food Van for lunch and a play on the play equipment and local oval. Please return any food orders ASAP. We enjoyed our previous visit in 2022, and we hope to have another great visit in week 10.

Presentation Day 2021

Our 2021 Presentation Day is scheduled for Thursday 9 December and will begin at 9.30am. Currently, we are unable to have external visitors part of this experience. We will record the event and post on YouTube on this day. We encourage you to keep the date in your diary, in the event restrictions ease and we can have visitors attending this event.

Kinder Orientation

Our amazing new Kindergarten 2022 visited our school for Orientation. They spent their time working with our Year 6 students. We also did a tour of the whole school, followed by some gaming activities with our school buddies. All students left our school with a smile on their face.

News from around the area...

News From Around The School


The Green Group are working on strengthening their computational skills by ensuring speed and accuracy when solving equations. Students make sure they are writing their working out clearly, lining up their place values and double checking their answers. 

Health Lessons

In our Health lessons, Years 3-6 have been looking at relationships and what makes a healthy relationship. Students brainstormed ideas on how friendships are created, strengthened and how these relationships may change over time. 

Focus on Reading

Since returning back to school, we have started our day with some independent/reading with a partner. This has helped us get ready for a day of learning while also boosting our love of stories! We also get a chance to do some independent learning and exploring new worlds with our friends.
