FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Open Day, Holidays and ANZAC Day
Let me start this week’s newsletter with an expression of thanks to so many of you who braved the elements last night to join us for our Open Day. I hope you enjoyed the opportunity to visit both your own child’s classrooms as well as other parts of our school. I know a lot of our primary families took the opportunity to visit our secondary classrooms and gain some insights into what lies ahead. We're so glad that you did – that is what the night is all about. It was also great to have so many first time visitors to our school – many of them encouraged by the personal recommendation of one of you. Despite the wet weather it worked out to be a good night for all.
We now only have one week left before the Easter term break. Let me just confirm that school will recommence for CCAS on Monday, April 24. Some schools have decided to make this a student free day for staff Professional Development. Given that we group our PD days together into a full week in the middle of the year (which provides a 3 week break for students) we felt it was important to run school on that day, even though Tuesday is a public holiday for ANZAC Day. We will run our school ANZAC Ceremony on Monday, April 24, day as part of our regular chapel program, and then our student leaders will represent our school at the Terrigal Dawn Service on Tuesday.
