FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Orientation, Transition and Summer
by Mr Tony Kent
It has been a pleasure today to welcome both our existing Year 6 students and new students joining CCAS in 2019 to our secondary program. The Year 7 orientation program, Lockers to Lunchtime, is designed to familiarise students with the both the high school facilities, subject options, unique routines of the secondary program and introduce them to their classmates. The Year 7 class of 2019 will be our biggest ever, with 4 streams catering for just over 100 students. Meeting them all together today confirmed my sense that they are a great group of students and we look forward to supporting them as they transition to high school and settle into the school routine for next year.
I think we got our first real taste of summer today - I am so grateful for our air conditioned classrooms! Having said that, it is amazing how students find ways to keep themselves cool, with plenty of water being splashed around in the primary school during their breaks.
Our HSC students are in the final stages of their exams, which finish next week. Following this, they will have their final celebration at the Year 12 Formal before a significant number of them head off on the MAD Trip to Vanuatu. We wish them well as they complete their schooling journey here at CCAS.
The term is rapidly disappearing – we are already at the end of Week 3! I hope you enjoy this newsletter.
