FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Production, Parent Interviews and StormCO
by Mr Tony Kent
It is hard to believe we have reached the end of another term so quickly! We spent some time with staff this week in worship reflecting on some of the highlights of the past ten weeks. So much happens in a school environment like ours and although the energy levels are low, it has been a great term here at CCAS.
Speaking of positive reflections, our musical production, "Beyond the Woods" was a highlight of this week and also the term. For those who came along to the performances, I’m sure you would agree that it was an outstanding production, delivered with a level of professionalism beyond one’s normal expectation of high school productions. Again, I would like to acknowledge all the staff and students involved in the delivery of this event, particularly Mr Robartson and Mr Raethel who were the driving forces to make this original production a reality.
Last night was an opportunity for primary parents to meet with teachers to review their child’s journey in the first half of the year. We trust that these opportunities are beneficial in keeping you connected with your child’s progress here at CCAS.
I am writing the newsletter a little earlier this week as I am leaving this morning, bright and early, with almost 50 Year 10 and 11 students and a group of dedicated staff, lead ably by our chaplaincy team, on our annual StormCO service trips to western NSW – specifically Brewarrina and Walgett. We will spend a week working in these predominantly indigenous communities providing service through the running of Kid's Club activities and undertaking some community service projects. It should be a great week, and I love working in a school that enables students to experience the joy of serving others.
Finally, I want to wish all our school families a safe and enjoyable holiday break. We will look forward to seeing everyone back on Monday, July 30 for the commencement of Term 3.
