From the Principal

Dear Parents, Staff and Students

Earlier this week we were delighted to welcome Mr Wayne Bull, CEWA Executive Director, for a visit to our school.  Mr Bull enjoyed a tour of the school, led by our senior students, before joining the staff for morning tea.  Mr Bull’s last visit to the school was in 2018.  He commented on the positive changes he could see around the school, environment.  We are grateful to Mr Bull for making the time to visit within his busy schedule. We wish him all the best as he completes his final year as Executive Director.

It has been a week of school visits.  On Thursday we welcomed Mr Clinton Payne, newly appointed Principal, for a visit.  Mr Payne toured the facilities, joined the staff for morning tea and spent some time with me going through handover requirements in preparation for his commencement in Semester Two.  Mr Payne will visit again next week and have an opportunity to meet the students in their classrooms.  Mr Payne will join me for cross walk duty in the afternoon.  Please make the time to say hello.

Congratulations to the Year 4 students who made their First Communion at Mass on Sunday.  The reverence the children, and their families, showed towards the Sacrament was commendable.  Thank you to Ms Bettridge, Mrs Keddie and Mrs Aldred and the choir, for their dedication towards preparing the children for the ceremony.

School Reports

With just 2 more weeks to go until the end of the term, the teaching staff are busy preparing the Semester One Reports.  The reports will provide parents with an indication of the progress the children have made, across all learning areas, in Semester One.  Ms Zurzolo will facilitate a workshop for parents about understanding the report procedures.  All parents are welcome to attend.  The workshop will be held in the Library on Friday 21 June at 2.30pm.

Week of Wellness

Don’t forget our Week of Wellness to promote, “MIND, BODY AND SPIRIT” in the final week of the term.  A flier advertising the week is in the newsletter and on the parent Facebook Page.  We encourage everyone to get into the spirit of Wellness Week by joining in with some of the activities planned.  End of term is the perfect time to focus on all that keeps us mindfully healthy.  A huge thank you to our CSAC Parent Wellbeing Sub-Committee for helping organise the week of activities.

Next Week

Don’t forget the Report Workshop next Friday afternoon.

We look forward to welcoming Mr Payne on Thursday afternoon.

Good luck to the Year 5 and 6 students participating in the Interschool Winter Carnival today.  Results will be made available in the newsletter next week.

I hope you all enjoy the weekend.

Warm regards.

In Year 5 for Design and Technologies we created FARMBOTS! Students used the design process to solve the problem of herding cattle on a farm. Their robot had to be able to ‘herd’ a sheep or a cow, some even accomplished two animals at the same time. To make it even trickier, their robot needed to be waterproof to withstand farm life. It was amazing to see how different each robot designs were and how important teamwork is in the final result.
