Open Day, Easter and WOSE

by Mr Tony Kent

​The dust has now settled on our annual Open Afternoon and, for those of you who were able to attend, I am sure you would agree that it was a great showcase of all aspects of your children’s education here at CCAS. It was great to see so many of our school community attending, along with lots of new families considering CCAS for their children. Again a big thank you for your ongoing support of our wonderful school.

It is rather timely here in school land to have the Easter long weekend falling two weeks before the end of term. This gives us all a nice break and a chance to catch our collective breath before the final run to the end of what has been a slightly longer term than normal. I trust that you and your family are able to enjoy a safe and enjoyable long weekend as well – let’s hope the dreaded Easter rain stays away this year and we can enjoy the autumn sunshine.

Next Tuesday, our first day back, we have both our Primary and Secondary cross country scheduled. The Primary carnival is in the morning and Secondary later in the day – both at Adcock Park in Gosford. Then in week 11, our final week of the term, we have our WOSE (Week of Spiritual Emphasis) program scheduled. These programs are always a spiritual highlight of the year for our students. Something to look forward to and we will share more on this next week.

Enjoy the upcoming break.


Week of Spiritual Emphasis (WOSE)

9-13 April

There are two speakers for WOSE next week. Dilys Brooks (Chaplain of Loma Linda University, California) will be sharing with Year 5-12 and Graeme Fraunfelder (Clown, motivational speaker and general nice guy) will be speaking to Kindy to Year 4.

The theme for next week is that God is near and always looking for His children. We are invited to find God through His Son. Jesus said the Good News was that "The Kingdom of heaven is near" [Mark 1:15].

From Monday-Friday there are programs throughout the day as listed below. These sessions are also open to our community to attend.

  • 8:50-9:35am - Year 5-8
  • 10:35-11:20am - Year 9-12
  • 1:55-2:45pm - Kindy - Year 4

There will be a Friday night program at 7:30pm on April 13 that is open to the whole community.

On Saturday, 14 April there will be a final WOSE event to wrap up the week.
