School Dress Code (Uniform) Subcommittee Meeting – Friday April 7th @ 2:30pm

As you are aware, this year we outsourced the supply and purchase of uniforms at CLG to Devon Clothing.  This decision was made by the Governing Council last year for a number of reasons but was prompted by the resignation of the school assistant who ran the uniform shop for a number of years.

Now that we have one supplier, we are confident that we can overcome a number of lingering issues including the variation of quality we have experienced especially with the polo tops.  We also have a number of decisions to make to standardise the dress code options.

To assist in these decisions, we have established a Dress Code Subcommittee as a reference group.  We are seeking 3 parent volunteers to join the group.  The first meeting will be next Friday April 7th at 2:30pm in the staffroom.  If you would like to be involved, please email Rick Bennallack at

Enterprise Day 2017 is coming!

Enterprise Day is on Wednesday 12th April starting at 12.30pm and finishing at 2.00pm. Parents, family, friends and community members are invited. It is an opportunity to provide real world learning experiences for students. Students set up a range of stalls and activities and any profits go towards supporting school facilities and equipment.

We are beginning to get excited! Students are organising their stalls, figuring out costs, pricing and profit margins, designing advertising campaigns and making items for sale. Further details will be sent home in the form of a brochure closer to Enterprise Day.

Please remember that Enterprise Day is an important part of the learning programme, particularly of the Australian Curriculum areas of Economics and Business, Mathematics, Health and English for all year levels and that the class reflecting on their experience as stall holders and customers is essential to this learning. For this reason we will not be dismissing children early to go home with parents or grandparents. The school day finishes as normal at 3:10pm.

ICT Committee – Parent nominations – First meeting Thursday 23rd March 3:30pm

Our first ICT Committee meeting will be this Thursday 23rd March at 3:30pm. This committee discusses the current landscape and plans future directions of ICT and digital technologies at CLGPS. Last year it consisted solely of staff members, however we are keen to have parent input into these matters. This is a final call for any parents interested in nominating to be a member of this committee. If you are interested, please email Ashley Blight at

Parent and Principals Forum


After a successful start last year, we will be holding another Parent and Principals Forum next Thursday March 23rd at 9:00am and again repeated on that day at 6:30pm. The purpose of the forum is to have a 2-way conversation with our school community about a range of educational and school related matters. Depending on the ongoing interest we plan to do this once a term.


At this term’s forum we are keen to hear from parents. Please bring your ideas, questions and concerns. To start off for 10 minutes, I will give a brief report about the progress of the school as highlighted at our recent AGM. The rest of the meeting will be open questions.


So we can plan ahead, if you are interested in attending either session please contact the school on 8276 1523 or email to book in. If you would like to send in any questions before hand please do so.
