Dear Parents and Carers,

What a grand, final week to Term 2!

Congratulations to every student who participated in the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang musical. Months of preparation led to a brilliant performance. We are immensely proud of each child’s resilience and courage to step on stage and wow audiences, over four performances, with their incredible talent.


Junior School Reports will be accessible via the Parent Lounge (through the website or Calvary app) after 5pm on Friday 14 July. Parent Teacher Interviews are scheduled for the week after this. You can find information regarding how to book in an interview below. We value the opportunity to meet face to face to set learning goals and discuss your child’s growth and potential. Please book in interviews early and email your child’s class teacher if you cannot make the dates provided, to arrange a suitable time.

Information regarding the structure and some updates to Reports can be found here;

Congratulations to Mrs Wong and the team of students who entered the recent Readers Cup Challenge. They placed fourth out of a pool of teams representing 25 schools.


Yesterday, we honoured our Record Breakers and Age Champions from the recent Stage 2&3 Athletics Carnival. Congratulations to all students for participating in track and field events. It is very exciting to see our younger students, particularly in Year 3, stretch to compete in the ‘big kids Carnival’ and do so, so well.

Winning House:  King House

Female & Male Overall Champs:  Holly Nam/Lilly Wilson & Daniel Mauger

Age Champions:


Firstly, thank you to the wonderful parent volunteers who support our Tuckshop! We cannot keep things going without the help of our parents. Perhaps the days on offer have not been convenient for you, but it’s exciting to say we have another opportunity in Term 3. We are looking for parents to assist with the open window Tuckshop on Mondays at first break. You can still volunteer for Thursday afternoon preparation or Friday morning Tuckshop orders. Please send through your availability via this form and Sheryl will be in contact once we can put the roster together.

Tuckshop Helpers - Term 3


Tomorrow is our final day of term before embarking on three weeks holiday. As per the tradition, it is Free Dress Day and we are collecting gold coin donations to go towards our Compassion Children. We have a Compassion Child per year level across the whole school. Our Missions Club students do a wonderful job writing letters to them. It is a special thing to be able to connect with and support their needs.

On behalf of myself and the Springwood Team, thank you for a wonderful Term 2. We hope that all our families have some time to rest and relax over the holidays.

Kim Winton
Head of Junior School - Springwood
