The Weekly Wrap

Road / Traffic / Pedestrian Safety

  • In recent weeks, we have received a number of reports of students not travelling safely to and from school.
  • The reports involve students crossing Black Road without using the pedestrian crossing lights. Instances of students riding their bikes unsafely have also been reported.
  • If your child / children walks or rides a bike to and from school, please take time to talk with him / her / them about road safety. Thank you.

School Discos – Save the Date

Last Week

  • Well done to the students who represented Craigburn in the SAPSASA Knockout Cricket last Tuesday morning.  Unfortunately, the boys were not able to get over the line against a tough team from Belair.
  • We welcomed a number of work experience students from Aberfoyle Park High School who undertook their placement at Craigburn, most being ex-Craigburn students. We thank them for their efforts and work.
  • We hosted our first team assemblies last Wednesday, where students and classes shared their learning achievements. Thank you to the families and friends who were able to join us. Please check in with the post, Team Assemblies, for other dates / times for 2019.
  • On Wednesday, we also hosted a special assembly for students in Years 5-7 – led by Jez, who heads up the fundraising team from One Girl. Jez gave an excellent presentation to students and teachers, sharing the  positive impact of the Do It in a Dress campaign from 2017, in which Craigburn played a major part. It was rewarding to learn about the stories of girls who are now part of schooling programs in Sierra Leone.
