June Newsletter 2018

Dear Parents,

Staffing Updates

I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Mr Marcus Dunstan on his appointment as SCOUT  Senior Regional Implementation Officer for Semester 2.

Changes to staff as a result of leave and secondment include:

  • Mr Jay Furniss will become the class teacher of 4D.
  • Mr Elliott McKimm will take on the position of the class teacher for 2O.

Both Mr Furniss and Mr McKimm are highly respected and valued members of our school community and we welcome them to their new positions.

We also welcome back Mrs Riley who is returning in Week 9 from maternity leave. Mrs Riley will work in conjunction with the K-2 Early Action for Success program and in the library.

We welcome Mr Dylan Turner who will teach the Fundamental Movement Skills program and Early Action for Success program previously taught by Mr McKimm.​

Thank you!

Thankyou to our hardworking P&C committee and also all the parents who assisted at the recent Mother’s Day activities, Working Bee and Zone Cross Country stall. All events were highly successful and can not happen without such wonderful community support. Thank you!

The Working Bee morning saw 20 people arrive ready to help in any way they could. All gardens were mulched, the chicken coup cleaned, garden beds repurposed and the side of C Block cleared.

There was only so much that could be done that morning so we will be planning more Working Bees in the future. Future plans include:

  • Sensory gardens near the boat and top basketball court
  • Refurbish the cricket net area to be functioning training areas
  • Building a retaining wall with seating on the top Basketball court, garden bed to be planted behind the seating

Winter Clothing

As the students are now in their winter uniform it is very important to make sure all clothing is clearly labelled. Clothing can easily be returned if it is clearly labelled.

Learning to Lead

Cronulla PS once again hosted the Learning to Lead program today. Thank you to Mrs Williamson for organising this important event.

Electrical Upgrades

The electrical upgrades for the school have begun with work on the Excelsior St kiosk. The next work will be the trenching through the playground which is scheduled for the holidays.

School Access

Parents are requested to please use the Excelsior St entry or the pedestrian access gate on Burraneer Bay Rd. Entry via the driveway is not permitted due to the high safety risk.

K-6 Athletics Carnival

The Cronulla PS K-6 Athletics Carnival will be held on Thursday 5th July at Sylvania Waters Athletic Track. Students 8 years and above will participate in formal events and be eligible for selection for the Cronulla Zone Carnival. Students under 8 Years will participate in a novelty carnival. Further information regarding the carnival will be sent home this week.

Stage 3 – Excursion to the Art Gallery of NSW

The Archibald Prize, first awarded in 1921, is Australia’s favourite art award, and one of its most prestigious. Awarded to the best portrait painting, the Archibald Prize is a who’s who of Australian culture – from politicians to celebrities, sporting heroes to artists.

A permission note and information regarding the excursion and costs will be sent home this week.

Stop Press! Bones Discovered at CPS!

Students were excited and puzzled when they found bones in the playground on Thursday 24th May. After discovering the bones, teachers contacted Glenn, an archaeologist to come and investigate the site. Glenn told students that these sorts of situations don’t happen often and it would be important to record this event for the CPS History Book. All students had the opportunity to write about this special day.

 

We’re eagerly awaiting the results from Glenn and his team. In the meantime, have a read of what some of the students think about the bones and where they may have come from…

The bones are fossils. The bones are from dinosaurs and an archaeologist. I could not go near the bones.

Keani KC

Dear kids,

I do not know what I am but I might be a cow. I might be a Megalodon, or I might be a water animal. I just don’t really know what I am! Anyway I came from your school and I was found on the side oval of your school. A man came to look at my bones.

First he dug my bones up. Next he tried to look for some clues. Then he saw some blood on my bones. Finally he took some soil to get some sort of idea what I am.

From the mystery creature.

Keanu 1E

Today was a normal day. I just got up and got dressed, and off I went to my amazing, beautiful school. When I got to school, something strange was going on. I thought it was suspicious. I was wondering why there were so many people in a circle. I was almost thinking that class started early. So I just ignored it. But when I put my bag away my friend came up and said “Come on, let’s go and see the dinosaur bones.” I was absolutely shocked. Maybe it wasn’t a normal day. So we ran to look at the cool dinosaur bones. I was not relaxed. I was shocked with amazement. I could not believe it. I thought it was a scary Megalodon.

Nicole 2G

This morning C.P.S discovered two bones at the bottom of the side oval. When we found them, no one knew how old they were or how they got there. In that case, Miss Page called an archaeologist called Dr. Glenn. He came to have a look at the bones. When he finished looking he took some soil back to his workplace to see how old it is. That way he could figure out how old the bones were. No one knows what animal bones they are, even Dr. Glenn. This is one of the strangest discoveries in Cronulla Public School History.

LOCAL SCHOOL FINDS BONES

By Janaya

A local school, down south of Sydney, finds a multiple of bones in the school oval. We asked the Assistant Principal of the school how they came across the bones. “We were walking around the school oval admiring the new gardens, when I saw a white round object in the ground.” the assistant principal explains. “So we got a couple of shovels and started digging.” she goes on further. When we realised what “it” was we stopped digging and called an archaeologist Glen.”

With further investigation we found out that ‘Glen’ had took some samples from the scene to bring us one step closer to find out what the bones are from.

Even though the bones have been taken from the site, rumors of what ‘it’ might be, travels around the school. We asked a student named ‘Te’ what he thought. “ I think that these might be dinosaur bones because of how big they are.” he suggests. Another student suggests that the bones are cow bones due to how close they are to the surface. “No dinosaur bone could be found at least 5 metres underneath the ground.”

But it didn’t stop there. The teachers also spoke their opinions. “Well there is still a possibility that the bones are dinosaur bone because here in South Sydney wind and water could move the dirt and make the bones rise to the surface,” a 5/6 teacher Brielle Howlett explains.

A girl named Janaya, from year six, asked us if she could explain her view of what thing these bones belonged to.

“Well I think that due to how close the bones are to the surface there is a 90% that it is not a dinosaur or a prehistoric animal. That leaves about 3 million years left. Which if you think about it doesn’t really narrow the years down” She explains.

“But by the shape and size of the bones, we can knock out most of the smaller animals and animals that don’t have back legs/ paws. I predicted this because of the way the bones are shaped. Because if you look closely one of the bones are shaped like a back leg.” she explains further.

“So with all the information I have gathered the bones might belong to a species that existed and or exist between the time of three million years ago to the present and the thing has back legs/paws.” She concludes.

So with all the information, rumors and guesses the school are a couple of steps closer to finding out what ‘thing’ the bones belong to and can’t wait to find out.

On Tuesday 22nd May Year One jumped in the time machine and travelled back to the early 1900’s. We spent the day experiencing what it was like in the early days of Cronulla Public School. Students engaged in a variety of activities including outside games such as marbles, hopscotch and skipping. Then we put aside the iPads to make a cup and ball game and worked on our posture in a classic chalk and talk spelling dictation lesson.

Sutherland to Surf

Cronulla Public School will once again be entering a team in this year’s Sutherland to Surf (S2S). The team is open to all members of the community, whether they be students, parents, caregivers or extended family and friends.

The S2S is an 11km fun run or walk and it takes place on Sunday 22nd July. Students can express their interest to enter by returning a note to Mr. McKimm. All of our team members must also visit the official S2S website and complete the official registration form. Our team name is Cronulla Public School Running Club and we are in the Runner’s Group category.

Mr. McKimm will send out final instructions to the team closer to the date for organisational purposes.

Parking Reminders

We ask that our school community is mindful of our local residents at drop off and pick up times. Please –

  • do not park across / block residents driveways
  • use the drop off bay only for disembarking or alighting passengers not parking and waiting
  • cross at the pedestrian crossing in front of the school and enter via the main gate.

Safety of all our students remains our prime concern.

Safe School Travel

DROPPING OFF OR PICKING UP YOUR CHILDREN

Schools are areas where there is a lot of interaction between cars and pedestrians.

Children are small, hard to see, behave unpredictably, and are extremely vulnerable.

Their lack of road experience means it is difficult for them to judge dangerous situations. Boys are twice as likely to be involved in pedestrian accidents as girls and children 10-14 years have the highest rate of child pedestrian casualties (RMS).

• Children up to eight years old should hold an adult’s hand on the footpath, in the carpark or when crossing the road.

• Children up to ten years old should be actively supervised around traffic and should hold an adult’s hand when crossing the road.

• Take the time to make sure your children are aware of, understand and follow traffic safety regulations when they are walking.

HAVE A PLAN

Plan with your son or daughter how you will collect them. When and where will you be after school? Where should they wait? Make sure they know not to try and get into your vehicle while it is still in traffic, even if you are stopped; they should wait until you have parked at the side of the road. Plan to arrive AFTER the school bell goes in the

afternoon, so your children are ready and waiting for you and you are not blocking traffic.

NO PARKING ZONES

A No Parking zone is a pick up and drop off area: you can stop here for a maximum of two minutes to drop off or pick up passengers and must remain within three metres of the vehicle.

When parents park in a No Parking zone for longer than two minutes they prevent other parents from stopping to drop off or pick up their children, creating frustration and dangerous situations. If you arrive before the school bell and block the pickup areas, you risk a fine.

Parking offences in school zones carry heavier fines and loss of demerit points. Sutherland Shire Council makes no apologies for fining drivers who break the law around schools and in school zones.

See the Roads and Maritime Authority website at www.rms.nsw.gov.au for more about Australian Road Rules and other road safety information.

Signs you will see around school

NO PARKING

What does it mean? You CAN stop in a NO PARKING zone for a maximum of two minutes to drop off and pick up passengers. You must stay within three metres of your

vehicle at all times.

Why is it there?

To provide a safe place for older children to be set down and picked up without endangering other children.

NO STOPPING

What does it mean?

You CANNOT stop in this area FOR ANY REASON.

Why is it there?

To keep sight lines clear for drivers AND children so both have more time to avoid crashes.

BUS ZONE

What does it mean?

You must NOT stop or park in a bus zone unless you are driving a bus.

Why is it there?

To provide a safe place for large buses to set down and pick up. Cars parking

in bus zones put lives at risk by forcing buses out of ‘their’ safety zone.

Safe People Safe Places

Stranger Danger Messages for Students

Please share these safety messages with your child.

  • Always walk straight home or to the required destination. Walk near busier roads and streets, or use paths where there are a lot of other people.
  • Know where safe places are – a shop, service station, police station, library or school. If you are frightened, you should go to one of these places and ask them to call the police.
  • Learn about safe adults you can look for and talk to if you need help – police officers, teachers at school, adults you know and trust.
  • Don’t talk to people you don’t know and never get into a car with someone you don’t know. If a car stops on the side of the road and you don’t know the person inside, do not stop.
  • If you are scared and can use a phone, call Triple Zero (000) and tell them you are scared.
  • If someone tries to grab you, yell out, ‘Go away, I don’t know you!’ This lets other people know you have been approached by someone you don’t know
