The Weekly Wrap – Term 2 Week 7 – 2021

We hope everyone is looking forward to enjoying some quality family time over the upcoming long weekend. A reminder that Tuesday 15 June is a student free day where teaching staff will continue to work on our learning improvement plan priorities.

Thank you for taking the time to read through this week’s wrap and best wishes to all for the week ahead.

Kind regards, Paul, Rob and Nicky.

Last Week

Winter Sports 

Our netball and soccer competitions are well underway on Saturday mornings – and not to forget the weekly basketball competition. Special thanks to the parents who assist with coaching and managing these teams, as without this volunteer support we would not be able to field teams. It is wonderful to see so many families involved in weekend and weekday sports and it’s also rewarding to see such a large numbers of students playing sports for the school.

Sapsasa Footy

A great team effort by our Year 6/7 Sapsasa Football team who played two games in the knockout competition at Flagstaff Hill Football Club’s ground. We defeated Coromandel Valley PS in the first game 7.5 to 2.1 and had a hard fought loss to Woodcroft PS in the second game 7.2 to 2.2. Well done to the boys who represented Craigburn with pride. Thank you to Mr Lemmey for coaching and parents who supported the team on the day.

Reconciliation Week

We were very proud of our student ambassadors who last week participated in the Southern Reconciliation Week Event at Neporendi Aboriginal Forum in Old Reynella. The student ambassadors also led last week’s Reconciliation Week assembly, along with the students and classes who shared thoughtful messages paying respect to the past, present and future Traditional Custodians and Elders of our great nation.
