Junior School News

It has been a highly charged beginning to Term 2, especially the excitement leading up to our first ever Colour Run. Attendance and enthusiasm was at an all-time high and the day was a great success! Thank you to all our families who supported this important fundraiser for the College.

Our excitement in the Junior School didn’t end there – our Interschool Swimming Team made us very proud when they returned home with first place overall carnival winners of the CSPPA! The team arrived back at school greeted by a very excited guard of honour made up of students from the rest of the Junior School. Congratulations to all our competitors who trained rigorously before school for a number of weeks and thank you to our dedicated teachers who prepared the students.

NAPLAN was the topic of week three and our students took this phase of testing well in their stride, they are to be commended on their maturity and responsible attitude over the course of the week. As is usual practice, results will be sent to parents in late August.

In the lead up to Mothers’ Day, a number of classes in our Early Years invited mums and other significant women to a variety of morning and afternoon teas. They were precious moments shared together and we thank all our parents and guardians for taking the time out to be with us. We hope all mums were spoilt on Mothers’ Day.

Although the weather has been beautiful of late, students are required to wear the winter uniform each day. Due to some warmer days over the past weeks, teachers have been asking the children to remove their ties before recess. However, please ensure that your children are in the correct uniform each day as staff will question them about this. I am sure the cold weather will be upon us soon.

A number of excursions and incursions are currently being prepared for the students, please keep an eye on your emails and jot the dates in your diaries.
