FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Open Day and WOSE
There has been a particularly special buzz around the campus this week, due largely to our Week of Spiritual Emphasis (WOSE) programs that I referenced in last week’s newsletter. We have been blessed this week by the messages presented by both Pr Leighton and Pr Brock, but also the huge number of students from across all levels of the school who have played a part in the delivery of these daily programs. Whether through singing, leading music, drama, sound, lighting or hosting, the skills and talents of so many have been on display. It has also been great to see so many of our parents coming along to support, particularly in our Kindy to Grade 4 school program each afternoon.
Every week there is something unique or special that happens here at school, and it is often what we write about or report on. Next week it will be our Open Afternoon on Thursday, which of course I encourage you all to attend. But this all happens within a routine that is our regular classroom program which is actually the most important and significant part of what happens here at CCAS. So, although I may not always make reference to this daily routine of teaching and learning, please know that it is actually the most important part of our program, absorbs 95% of our time and effort, and is the most significant contributor to your child’s education here at CCAS.
Our Open Afternoon next Thursday, from 3:30pm to 6:00pm, will showcase some of the extracurricular opportunities available to our students, but the core purpose of this event is to provide parents and the broader community with a more detailed insight into the teaching and learning process here at CCAS. This will be through visiting the classrooms, seeing examples of both your’s and other students work, and speaking with staff, not only about what your child is currently doing, but also the opportunities that lie ahead as they progress through their schooling. For primary parents this includes an opportunity to explore and understand the secondary program – which may not have been on your radar to the same extent when choosing a school for your child. So come along and enjoy this unique opportunity.
