Crazy Hair Day
Primary Interhouse Cross Country (Year 2 – 6)
Our Interhouse Cross Country will be taking place on Friday 29 April (Week 1, Term 2) for all students in Year 2 – 6. In light of the current climate and restrictions, this year’s Interhouse Cross Country has been modified appropriately, in order for our students to have the opportunity to participate. Year groups will participate in the Cross Country at allocated times throughout the day. The course will be contained within the school boundaries and students will run around a 500m track on the secondary oval.
What to Wear:
- House Sport Uniform (Physical Education shorts and House shirt)
- Appropriate running shoes
What to Bring:
- Clearly marked hat and water bottle
We are pleased to inform you that parents/guardians will be able to spectate from a distance. Parents/guardians may only spectate their own child’s race and must leave promptly at the end of the race. Parents/guardians will only be permitted to spectate from a designated area on the far side of the oval (closest to the road).
Today was the first passport signing session for 2022. They will be every Tuesday in the Primary Forum between 8.15 – 8.45 am. The next session will be the 3rd May – as this is nearly a month away, please diarise this session and remind your children closer to the date. New students to the program will need to come and collect their passports at these sessions.
The Autumn Challenge set by CUA has some great activities to keep students busy and having fun while learning, please see attached. I am sure you will find some time to incorporate these into the school holidays. School holidays is also a time when many CU families make time to visit a learning destination – maybe you could try AQWA, Art Gallery of WA, Bibbulmun track, the Busselton Jetty and Underwater Observatory, City of Joondalup Libraries or many more. Remember, no matter what you do, always collect some evidence so that the hours can be accredited during the passport stamping sessions. Evidence could include a photo, an entry ticket, a journal entry about the visit, a short video, a finished piece of artwork etc.
I look forward to seeing and hearing what the students get up to these holidays!

Year 6 Science
The Year 6 students have been learning about volcanoes in Science. On Wednesdays, Year 6 students spend their Science lesson in the Secondary Science laboratory where they do hands-on practical work to help consolidate their understanding of work covered in class. Over the past two weeks, the Year 6’s designed and built a volcano. They activated their models this week– when a combination of vinegar, bicarbonate of soda, detergent and a drop of food colouring resulted in their volcanoes blowing their tops. It’s been amazing to see Year 6 students working in Secondary Science laboratories, getting a feel of the many opportunities ahead.
A message from Madame Pilote
As the holidays are fast approaching, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your ongoing support and understanding in what has proven to be quite an unprecedent term. I wish you and your family a blessed Easter and hope that you will enjoy some quality and restful time with your loved ones over the coming weeks.
