I had the pleasure of accompanying Years 5 and 6 students on their camp at Fitzroy Falls last week. The camp staff commented on how polite and engaged students were and that we had quickly become one of their favourite schools. Despite the rain, students participated in team and individual challenges including the high ropes, zip-line, big swing and bush craft. It would have been easy for students to give up, especially given the weather, but they continued on and participated in all of the activities with great enthusiasm. I thank Mr Matt Smith, Mrs Sarieda Snow, Miss Samantha Pigram, Mr Michael Prosper and Mr Joshua Mackenzie for giving up three days away from their own families to provide supervision and support to the students. The camp staff have found a few items left behind by students and will bring these to Canberra sometime in the next two weeks - we will let you know when they arrive.
On Thursday, students in Kindergarten to Year 4 went to see The Twits at the Canberra Theatre. By all accounts, our students represented the school incredibly well. They demonstrated excellent audience manners and their teachers commented on what a pleasure it was to take the students on this excursion. While some restrictions have tightened, it’s nice to still be able to take students on excursions.
It is with a little sadness that I have to let you know Mrs Krystle Burnett will be leaving us in Week 5. Krystle successfully gained an outreach position with a university. Krystle said, it was a difficult decision as she will miss the community enormously, but the flexibility will allow her to spend more time with her family. I have advertised this position, so if you know of an enthusiastic Science/STEM or primary teacher please pass it on.
Take care and God bless
Yours in Faith
Note from Mr Ross Fox, Director CECG
Acknowledging the unprecedented situation we face, and following consultation, I have authorised two additional pupil free days in Term 3. The timing of these days for ACT schools will align with times set by the ACT Education Directorate – Friday in Week 3 and Friday in Week 8. NSW schools will set dates for these these pupil free days in consultation with nearby schools. I hope this additional time will assist teachers and staff in term 3.
In accordance with the abovementioned and in line wth all ACT Schools, we note that the two additional pupil free days for Term 3 are:
- Week 3, Friday 5th August 2022
- Week 8, Friday 9th September 2022
We, again, thank our community for supporting and working with us to enable our school to hopefully remain appropriately staffed and open and our amazing learning to continue.

We look forward to seeing some amazing work presented by Year 5 when they host the next assembly on Friday 29th July 2022. Sadly, we are unable to welcome families to the assembly, in accordance with the COVID Management Plan but we hope that families will have discussions surrounding their child’s involvement in their assemblies.
Coming up in week 4...........Year 1!
Did you know that applying for a Working with Vulnerable People (WWVP) card is free when volunteering? All visitors volunteering within the school require a current WWVP card which must be recorded upon entry into the school.
We encourage family involvement in your child’s education. This can be achieved in many ways such as class reading, attending excursions or sporting events, just to name a few. Please consider applying for your free WWVP card by visiting https://www.accesscanberra.act.gov.au/s/article/working-with-vulnerable-people-wwvp-registration-tab-overview
