Welcome back to Term 4! Can you believe that we are nearing the end of 2021?
We have hit the ground running with the junior years off to swimming, Kindy Orientation days are happening and a SciTech Challenge. Congratulations to all the students who participated in this challenge...they won! How cleaver are our children! Thanks to Mr J for all your guidance and support with this.
……. and we have loads more exciting events coming up.
I had the best time travelling up through Karijini National Park to Broome, Exmouth and Coral Bay. We have such spectacular countryside and so fortunate to be able to travel. Thank you Mr J for taking the reins, from all accounts you did an amazing job.
Today is Mrs Reid’s last day at school. She will take some time to get ready before she becomes a mum very soon. Mrs Reid is very much part of the CPS community and we wish her and her husband Dan all the very best as they join the parenthood family.
The years 6’s are off to Geraldton for a week at the Geraldton camp. We wish them all the best and hope they have an awesome time! Parents don’t worry, they are in fantastic hands! Take this time to enjoy a little bit of peace.
Very big thank you to the P & C for organising a lovely morning tea for World Teachers Day. The staff are most grateful for the support and value that our community has for what they do. It was such a lovely start to the day!
I am aware that the community has received some Stirling Council information about the land on the corner of Pearson and Cromarty. It is one of the council’s conditions of providing the land to the Department that all access points to the land are closed. I am working with the Department of Education, Finance and surveyors on an appropriate solution to this and current Kiss and Drop area. It is expected to continue to be used as an area for school parking and address more appropriate solutions to the parking/traffic area. I will keep the board and community updated as I gain further information.
A friendly reminder that we have an Open School Board Meeting next Monday 25 October at 6.30pm in the library. There is also a P & C meeting on Tuesday 26 October at 7 pm in the library where there will be a discussion and voting on supporting the Oval Creative Play space.
We have a number of private external operators who lease our buildings and facilities; i.e. tennis, OSH, soccer, basketball. These are not owned or run by the school and are separate entities. If you have any queries about these please contact the operators who are the best to answer your questions.
