As we come to the end of Term 1 it is always important to look back and reflect on the many opportunities and initiatives that contribute to school life at Cronulla PS.
Year 4 have recently returned from their time at the Berry Sport and Rec Camp. It was great to hear how our Year 4 students challenged themselves in the activities and demonstrated resilience and determination over the three days. For many of these students it was their first time away from home without their family.
Additionally, last week I had the absolute pleasure of travelling with Year 6 for their annual 5 day camp in Western NSW. The highlights for me were visiting the staff and students at Wellington Public School, bike riding through Western Plain Zoo and spending the time away from school with our senior students. I would like to recognise and acknowledge all the students who demonstrated excellent behaviour and represented the school proudly during the week away. It was an amazing experience with so many highlights which the children will always remember.
A very special thank you to the all the teachers involved in both the Year 6 and Year 4 camps which have taken place over the last fortnight – Mrs Ross, Miss Richards, Miss Howlett, Miss Dwyer, Mr Mealing and Mr Allum who accompanied the students on these trips. Programs such as these are not possible without dedicated staff who are willing to take on additional duties for the benefit of our students.
As of the first day back in Term 2, staggered finish times will no longer be in place and we will return to all students finishing at 3:25pm. Please be reminded to follow the road and parking rules when dropping off and picking up students from school.
I would like to thank the wonderful staff, both teaching and non-teaching for all that they do to support students at Cronulla Public. Much goes on behind the scenes to ensure outstanding educational programs as well as providing a safe and happy environment for the students. Thank you also to the parents who have supported our school in so many ways this term. I wish you all a safe, happy and restful holiday. School resumes on Tuesday 20 April.
