Thank you to all of our lovely mothers and families who made it to our High Tea. There was an overwhelming response to the event and we are so grateful to have had so many people involved. Children hold such a built in connection with their mother and it’s one we are glad to honour.
A special thanks to all of the staff involved in organising this event, especially Ms Spinucci and the Special Events Team. We look forward to hosting the event in 2019, which will include a few slight modifications to improve the day.
In preparation for our Afghan Day (June 20th) we have begun a Language Group catering to parents who speak Dari and Pashto. Currently this group consists of mothers from our Afghan community. We are happy to give much of the decision making power for Afghan Day and the Language Group to our Year 5 & 6 children. This opportunity is building up their leadership skills as well as valuing their contribution to our school community. This is giving the children a chance to express their opinion and the power and will to make decisions.
Our current enrolment details show that nearly a quarter of the children at our school come from Afghan backgrounds. The upcoming celebration will follow Ramadan (15th May – 14th June), a religious custom many of our school community will be observing. This celebration time is known as Eid and we hope to see all of our community joining the festivities on June 20th.
We are excited to announce we are launching a CCPS Fitness Group. For those parent who would like to increase their fitness and health levels, as well as those looking to create a new friendships. Details are as below, or please contact the School Office with any additional questions.
