Congratulations and thank you to all students, staff, families and friends who supported our first ever school Run4Fun Colour Explosion, with over $15K raised going towards outdoor projects determined by our students (through SRC student leaders). Big thank you to our parent community fundraising team for coordinating the event and to the Coromandel Valley CFS for their support on the day. Please visit our Facebook Page for photos taken of the event. Please check this recent post regarding prizes.
Another successful Sports Expo was enjoyed by students / classes last week, with many ‘come ‘n’ try’ activities such as Ninja Warrior, Golf, Softball, Taekwondo, just to name a few. Thanks once again to our Physical Education teacher, Karen Pettman, for organising the activities and promoting the importance of Health & PE in the Australian Curriculum.
Craigburn teachers celebrated World Teachers’ Day on Friday with special thanks to our Pastoral Care Worker Catherine Chambers for coordinating a lovely morning tea and to Governing Council member Lisa Slate for her acknowledgement of the day and provision of certificates.
STEM Family Evening
We remind families and friends to join us on Monday 5th November for our second STEM Family Evening and to check out some of the amazing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) activities that students are involved in at school. The evening includes a number of challenges and fun hands-on activities for you and your family to be involved in, including:
Water themed activities: build a boat, bubble making
Nature and musical craft
Air themed activities: kites, paper planes, hoop gliders, paper-plate fans, parachutes
Examination of the Pedal Prix car
Beebots and programming within German
Seed bombs and planting in the ELC
Green screening and 3D printing
There will also be a free sausage sizzle as part of the evening and an opportunity to purchase drinks too for a small price. To make the most of the evening, we would also like to encourage you to have a downloaded QR Code reader on your phone.
Come along, bring the whole family, invite your grandparents and make an evening of it!
