Hi families,

Next Wednesday, we are placing the order for t-shirts for the children’s performances in Lighting Up The Arts.  If your child is NOT going to attending the evening due to family holiday etc, please notify your child’s teacher in writing or by email IMMEDIATELY.  For each child who is performing in LUTA, we will be invoicing each family for the cost of the t-shirts soon.

SAPSASA Cross Country selections for District Day Thursday 9th of June

On Friday I took 40 students to the SAPSASA Cross Country trials held at Belair National Park. Seven of our students have been selected to participate in the SAPSASA District Cross Country event at Oakbank on Thursday 9th of June. Congratulations to Marielle B, Abby K, Oscar C, Mitchell O, Finn W, Asha D-G and Jed O.

We were extremely successful with placements with 13 students in the top 7-16 and a further 3 who came in before the 25th mark. All participants did their personal best. A big thank you to Hal M who marshalled on the day, and to the many parents who came to watch.

BOGAN BINGO is to be one of our biggest fundraisers for the year

We are NOT having Lap-a-thon (where we would raise $11k), due to skip-a-thon Heart Foundation fundraiser, we are NOT having a Quiz Night (every 2nd year, would raise $8k). For us to reach our goal of $20k we are needing to do this event, a new event, so you wouldn’t be tired of the same old events year in and out. A deposit has been paid, over $500, and we will lose this money off our fundraising we have already done, if tickets are not sold. Come support this great night of laughs. Tickets available in the morning. I, Kelly G will walk around Friday afternoon selling tickets. Tickets are $25. Please don’t leave it to the last minute to buy tickets.Bring a big group of friends and take up a whole table, Only a few of you that’s ok, sit together on the long bingo tables. 

We have some great prizes to be won. We really don’t want to cancel the night.

Goodbye and Thank You

It is with very mixed feelings that I farewell CLGPS on my last day as Principal.

I am excited about creating the next phase of my life and look forward to a slower pace. However, I am very sad to leave the people that work so well together, to create the strong sense of community that makes CLGPS such a special place.

I thank you all for your support over the last four years and your kind wishes for the future.

I have made sure that Mr Rick Bennallack, our new Principal, knows just how lucky he is to be working in the CLG community!

Thank you and best wishes                                                                                                                       Sue Woollard
