Chinese Student Homestay at Colonel Light Gardens Primary School
Wednesday 14th December 2016 in the Staff Room at 8.50am
Come along for a cuppa and find out more information about what it means to be a host family for a Chinese student.
Colonel Light Gardens Primary School will be hosting 10 students from China in March 2017 and we are in need of host families.
Being a host family means taking one or two students under your wing, caring for them, making them feel welcome and giving them a taste of Aussie life. When you host an international student, they will become a member of your family and will attend school at CLGPS. We will answer any questions you may have about how the program works and your role as a host family at this Q and A session.
RSVP to Jodie Cunningham or to the front office Ph. 8276 1523 or firstname.lastname@example.org
REGISTRATION NOW OPEN for SUMMER SPORTS
Basketball Cricket Softball
Please consider offering to help by coaching or managing a team that your child is interested in and indicating this on the registration form. Without a coach and manager the team cannot be formed and registered with the association. A number of parents share these roles with one helping train during the week and the other looking after the team on game days.
CLGPS After Hours Sports Registration 2017
We are using online sports registrations for 2017. This means some changes to the way students commit to school after hours sport. There will be no common registration evening.
Registrations will have set opening and closing dates. Online registrations help our volunteer sports coordinators by making it easier to compile team lists and player/parent contact details. This will enable our coordinators the time to put together teams and recruit and match up coaches. Please remember coordinators are volunteers and do this in their own time to support your children. Once the registration period has closed late registrations can only be made by special arrangement and an extra fee may apply. Where a sport requires additional players to fill teams, registrations may be reopened.
Sports fees must also be paid online at the time of registration for it to be completed. Where this may be difficult alternate payment arrangements can be made with the school business manager, Amanda Jackson. Unregistered players are not permitted to play as this puts players, school and the relevant sports association at risk

To help you plan around work and other commitments, here’s the running order for Friday’s concert. We aim to start around 11.45 and will finish around 1.15pm.
