Term 3, Week 10

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

The last week of Term 3 has been exciting and busy for our Junior School community, and we are confident that they are all ready for a well-earned school holidays. We look forward to seeing you all again on Tuesday 4 October for the beginning of Term 4.

 

Calvary Cup Futsal

On Wednesday, Calvary hosted the annual Calvary Cup. Various schools brought teams to verse our students in many nail biting matches. We are proud of the results and the character shown by the students on the day. Congratulations to our-U10Boys/U12 Girls/U12 mixed and U10 Girls who were runners up in their divisions.

 I would like to acknowledge the work that Mr Ocana puts into our Futsal programme and the heart that he has to see each of our students play with excellence.

 

Prep Space Expo

If you were to walk into the Prep Learning Spaces this week you would have been met with many eager and enthusiastic NASA researchers. The Preps held their first expo where they shared the learning that they had experienced this term learning about space and different properties of materials. I was amazed by the depth of knowledge that the students had as they shared the brand new planets that they had created. They demonstrated attention to detail in their intricate designs and also critical thinking as they explained what properties were present on their planet. Well done to the Prep team.

 

Swimming

Swimming lessons have continued for our Stage 1 students this week. The week intensives are a great way for the students to progress more quickly and learn how to be safe in the water.

 

Free Dress

A reminder that Free Dress will be on Friday 16 September – our last day of school. Please make sure your child wears closed in shoes and has appropriate clothing. Please see the link on Free Dress guidelines. The optional theme for Free Dress is “Back to the 80s”  in support of Back to the 80’s Musical put on by our Middle Senior School Students.

Cross Country and Fun Run

 

Our students have also received information about our fundraiser (‘School Fun Run’) that we are including as a part of this day – we are aiming to direct funds raised towards upgrading of our resources for the Sports Program. Your support and encouragement with this will be greatly appreciated.

Students are permitted to wear their House-based sports uniform to and from school on this day. Parents and family members are welcome to attend to cheer on the students, and are requested to sign in at the Front Office before heading to the oval.

 

Fun Run Update

So far our student’s fund raising efforts have raised just under $13,000!!!   These funds will go a long way towards our plans to upgrade/expand the Netball courts at Springwood and the Bitumen Basketball courts at Carbrook.

 

Congratulations to Casey Dickson and her class (Stage 2A) for having the highest number of registered fundraisers in the College. Our next ‘major’ competition is for individual students who raise:

  • $100 or more… go into the draw for $50 Rebel Sport gift cards
  • $250 or more… go into the draw for a $100 Rebel Sport gift card

 

This will be ‘drawn’ at the end of Week 1.

 

Well done Calvary!
