Readers Cup Challenge

On Tuesday a group of Stage 3 students attended the Readers’ Cup Challenge for South Brisbane. These students have worked with Mrs Wong for many weeks, reading the set titles and working their comprehension skills to put together a presentation and be prepared to compete against 30 other schools. It was a highly competitive day and our wonderful team from Carbrook didn’t place in the competition, but their effort and good – sportsmanship is to be commended. The students involved should be very proud of their efforts and the results they achieved. A special shoutout to Bailey who was also in the team and read through the book list, but was unable to make it to the competition date due to representing the school in the Districts Athletics Carnival.


Science Week

Once again, we are holding our annual Calvary Science Competition in the Junior School.
We encourage the students in Prep to Stage 3 to participate with an age-appropriate science investigation.
It is a wonderful opportunity for students to apply their science knowledge and celebrate their learning in science.

We recommend you use the booklet to follow the scientific investigation process. If you would like to present your experiment in some other way, make sure you address all the sections of a scientific report that are in the booklet.

Due Date: Friday 28th July Happy Science investigating.


Free Dress Day

On our final day of term will be a free dress day with the theme “pyjama day”. Free dress day rules and expectations still apply, please send students with a hat, closed in shoes and layers that can be taken off as they warm up throughout the day. We ask that students bring a gold coin donation to support our compassion students.




As the term wraps up the Carbrook Junior School team wishes you a safe and restful holiday period. We look forward to seeing you again in Term 3.

Acting Head of Junior School - Carbrook
