October Newsletter 2019

Dear Parents,

Welcome back to Term 4. We hope everyone had a great break ready for the new term.

Congratulations to all the students who have received a Term 3 Principal Commendation Letter. One child per class is selected twice a year for a Commendation Letter which is sent to their parents. Students are acknowledged and commended for demonstrating the Positive Behaviour for Learning values of Safety, Respect and Learning. A full list of the recipients is included in the newsletter. Well done students!

Staff will complete their additional 6 hours of Professional Learning this term. This additional Professional Learning is in lieu of the second Staff Professional Development Day at the end of Term4. Notification and approval by the Director for the change was previously published in Term 2.

Staffing Updates

As notified Mr Trent Bridgland, principal of Taren Point, has been appointed by merit selection as the Principal of Cronulla Public School. Mr Bridgland is very excited to be joining Cronulla at the beginning of 2020 and will be visiting the school on several occasions during Term 4 in preparation for next year.

Notification has been given that we have begun the merit selection process for another Assistant Principal for Cronulla Public School. This will be the 4th Assistant Principal for the school. The position will begin Term 1 2020.

School Uniform Updates

All students should have now transitioned to Summer School Uniforms. Please note that summer school uniform is worn for the School Photos.

As part of the Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) principles, attention to wearing the correct uniform is expected. This includes the white ankle socks for girls and full black shoes. All students require a school hat for sun protection. Please ensure all items are labelled clearly.

Have Your Say on Before and After School Care

The NSW Government is committed to providing before and after school care to all students of public primary schools in New South Wales. As part of the reform, a parent web form has been established by Service NSW that will enable parents to tell the department about their specific care needs and to stay up to date with any new developments.

The information provided by parents will help the Department of Education to understand your needs, give them insights into where there are gaps in service delivery and help to ensure the extra places are delivered where they are required.

Have you say today at https://www.service.nsw.gov.au/basc.

 

2020 Class Planning

As planning for 2020 is already underway, it is very important to ensure you have notified the office of any siblings that will enrol next year or if you are moving. Your prompt attention to this information is appreciated.

School Photos- Tuesday 29th October (week 3)

School photos will be taken on Tuesday 29th October.

Parents have the option to pay online through the Don Wood Photography website or send the envelope to school with the cash enclosed.

On the Package Information Sheet there is an Access Code: 168217, which you use to pay online or access team/group photos. 

Family photos can be requested online prior to photo day or an envelope can be collected from the office. Any special groups/team photos can also be ordered online once the photos have been taken.

Tell Them From Me Parent Survey

This Term, our school will be participating in the Partners in Learning parent survey, another part of the Tell Them From Me suite of surveys (student, teacher and parent surveys) on student engagement. The survey asks parents and carers questions about different factors that are known to impact on student wellbeing and engagement.

Running this survey will help our school understand parents’ and carers’ perspectives on their child’s experience at school. These include: communication between parents/carers and staff, activities and practices at home and parent/carer views on the school’s support of learning and behaviour. This valuable feedback will help our school make practical improvements.

The survey is conducted entirely online on smartphones, ipads, tablets, laptops or computers. The survey will typically take 15 minutes or less to complete and is completely confidential. The parent survey will be conducted between 27 August and 26 October. Although participating in the survey is entirely voluntary, your responses are very much appreciated.

More information about the survey is available at: http://surveys.cese.nsw.gov.au.

To access the survey for our school go to: https://nsw.tellthemfromme.com/cronullaps

Your support with completing the survey is appreciated.

Selective High School 2021 entry procedures

Selective high schools cater for high achieving academically gifted students who may otherwise be without sufficient classmates at their own academic and social level. These schools help gifted and talented students to learn by grouping them with other gifted and talented students, teaching them in specialised ways and providing educational materials at the appropriate level.

Applications for selective high school placement are considered mainly on the basis of the Selective High School Placement Test results and school assessment scores.

The Selective High School Placement Test will be held on Thursday 12 March 2020.

If you would like to have your child considered for Year 7 selective high school entry in 2021, you need to apply on the internet using a valid email address (not the student’s email address).

Detailed instructions on how to apply online at

https:// education.nsw.gov.au/public-schools/selective-high-schools-and-opportunity-classes/year-7.

You must submit only ONE application for each student.

Year 5 Canberra and Snowy Mountains Camp

In the last week of Term 3, Year 5 travelled to Canberra and the snow for 4 days of jam packed fun! We visited the many attractions of our nation’s capital and spent the day at Perisher snowfields.

DAY 1

Our happy little campers could hardly contain their excitement, arriving at school bright and early. Our first stop was the Australian War Memorial where students explored the Discovery Zone inspired by Australia’s military history. After that we stopped by the Australian Institute of Sport. We had a guided tour of Australia’s premier elite sports precinct and visited the gymnastics, basketball and swimming facilities. We were even lucky enough to see some gymnasts and water polo players in their training sessions! Next the students had a hands on experience in Sportex, an interactive sports exhibit. Finally we ventured to our accommodation and settled into our camp rooms.

DAY 2

First off we explored Cockington Green, a park of miniatures! Next we took a drive around the embassies and high commissions. After that we arrived at Parliament House. We had a guided tour of both the House of Representatives and the Senate. Did you know the Australian flag on top of Parliament House is the size of a double-decker bus, measuring 12.8m in length? Finally we ventured to the Snowy Hydro Discovery Centre and learnt all about the history and production of the Snowy Mountains Scheme.

DAY 3

Perisher was snow much fun! ⛄️ Year 5 had a ball playing in the snow, making snowmen and sliding down the slopes! The sun was shining and the conditions were perfect! We loved going up and down the mountain on the chair lift! For many kids it was their first time seeing snow and the excitement was contagious! To top an incredible day, Year 5 ended the night with a disco!

DAY 4

Our first stop was the National Museum of Australia where students explored the galleries and even made their own digital time traveling robot. After that we ventured to Questacon – the National Science and Technology Centre. The six metre free fall slide was certainly a highlight! Year 5 loved playing, discovering and learning through hands on experiences. It was so much fun! The gift shop was a hit too!

Miss Richards, Mr McKimm and Miss Dwyer would like to thank Year 5 for their impressive behaviour and enthusiastic participation throughout the duration of the camp. You were outstanding ambassadors for our school! We hope you treasure the memories of your Year 5 camp experience for many years to come.

Year 1 Excursion

Year 1 travelled back in time during their History excursion to the NSW Schoolhouse Museum. They enjoyed having a hands on experience with what it was like in school over 100 years ago. From cooking food over a fire, writing with slate and ink pens, dressing up and even seeing the cane, they were thoroughly engaged in this blast from the past! ​

Year 4 Excursion

Year 4 enjoyed their excursion to the Opera House to experience Earth’s Dinosaur Zoo. They were able to get a hands on experience and a brief history of various dinosaurs that lived in Australia 66 million years ago! It was a beautiful, sunny day and our recommended step count was reached. What a wonderful way to finish Term 3!

Art News Operation Art Regional Workshops

Over the last two weeks of Term 3, Operation Art regional workshops held at Sydney Olympic Park, Homebush. Interested students from CPS were invited to attend a day of art making.

On Tuesday 17th September, the rainy weather didn’t dampen the student’s enthusiasm for a fun day, filled with creating artworks and meeting new friends. Stage 1 students from all over Sydney came to experiment with print making, mixed media and clay works, working alongside art teachers and local artists. The student workshops are running in conjunction with the Operation Art, art exhibition at The Armory Gallery, which is also onsite. Mrs Hackfath is supervising these student workshops and loving the art produced by some very talented artists, including Meg and Daisie.

Well done girls!

The Environment Team

The Environment Team had a meeting on the last Wednesday of Term 3 to discuss our plans for Term 4. The students ideas were thoughtful and appropriate to our schools position.

The team came up with two initiatives that will be starting straight away:

  • Lids for Kids – Envision Hands
  • Aussie Bread Tags for Wheelchairs

Lids for Kids Information (Envision Hands)

  • Envision hands mission is to create 100 bespoke aids out of bottle caps, with 3D printers, which we will then donate to children in need.
  • They use all flat soft drink, water and milk bottle tops, including those from long life containers.
  • They cannot process tops which have other plastic or metal attached – this includes water bottle tops which have pull up tops. They also ask that the caps are cleaned before they are donated and that no extra plastic, metal or other material is attached.
  • Approximately 250 lids are used to make a small hand, however the wastage ends up being approximately 500 lids by the time it has been made. For an arm, approximately 500 lids are used with a wastage of approximately 1000 caps.

  • Bread Tags for Wheelchairs was started in South Africa in 2006 by Mary Honeybun. It is a community program where individuals and organisations collect bread tags, which are sold to recyclers.
  • The money raised pays for wheelchairs for the less fortunate which are purchased through a local pharmacy. Currently about 500kg of bread tags are collected a month in South Africa, funding 2-3 wheelchairs. You can find more information on their websites:
  • http://www.breadtagsforwheelchairs.co.za/?fbclid=IwAR10ngW1Z5GY7LV-hgvIy4f3nek6mJj2k8bBgovrn7YIqE4DfjTPDsmRBIE
  • https://envision.org.au/envision-hands/

The Environment Team would love for you to join us in collecting bread tags and bottle top lids.

Students can donate their tags and lids to the tubs at morning assembly.

Thank you for your support.

We are looking forward to seeing your Waste Free Lunchboxes and tag and lid donations in Term 4.
