FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Enhancements, HSC and Storms
by Mr Tony Kent
Welcome back to our final term of the year. It was great to have all the students arrive back refreshed and ready to go. We also have a significant number of new students who have joined our school for the first time - welcome to CCAS.
As always, there is plenty happening around the school. Primary students are enjoying the enhancements to the playground precinct that were completed earlier this week (new synthetic turf replacing bare earth around our playground spaces) - what a difference it makes! Our Year 12’s are now immersed in the reality of the HSC, with the English exams now complete. We wish students well over the next three weeks as they complete these important exams. Year 10’s have been doing their work experience program this week in a variety of workplaces. It will be good to hear of their experiences when they return to regular classes next week.
There is something about the timing of the weather and it’s alignment with school pick up. Yesterday’s storm did make for a rather interesting dynamic for students and staff and parents as we worked to get everyone safely into cars and buses for their trip home. Thanks to everyone for your patience and understanding as we managed this the best we could, even though we appreciate that there were some rather wet students (and teachers) heading home after school.
I hope you enjoy this week’s newsletter.
