Running Club -Starts Wednesday 21 February 

Running club is on Wednesday mornings starting at 8.10 am-8.40 am from week 4 (Wednesday 21 February).  For new families to Churchlands PS, Running Club is where students run laps around the school earning points for their faction. Exercising in the mornings has many health benefits and is a great way to start the day. 

Some benefits include: 

  • improved physical and mental energy,  
  • a better night’s sleep,  
  • reach your fitness goals, 
  • enhance your metabolism.   

A reminder that mugs for Milo need to be placed on the table outside the undercover area before 8.25 am.  Milo is a reward for the effort put in during running club.  

It is encouraged that students need to run at least 5 laps to get a Milo. Turning up late won’t allow enough time to get 5 laps done.

CPS Swimming Carnival – Tuesday 19 March at Churchlands High School 

The Churchlands PS Swimming Carnival is taking place on Tuesday 19 March at Churchlands High School.  All year 3- 6 students are involved in this awesome event and each student will compete in at least 2 races.  More information regarding races will be released closer to the time.    

The year 3 – 6 students are currently completing their swimming lessons now, and how that finishes up will determine the shape of the carnival.  The swimming abilities of students play a massive part in what events students will be in. The safety of all kids will always be put first.  All swimmers need to have passed level 5 to participate in the stroke events.  As to pass level 5 you need to be able to swim 25m.  If you feel your child is capable but is in level 5 or below, please contact Mr Marshall at   

Those swimmers who are in level 5 and below will participate in some novelty events such as the kickboard race and noodle race.  As this will be the first swimming carnival for a lot of our students, we must make them feel comfortable in the water and make it as fun as possible.  


These events would not be possible without the wonderful help of the Churchlands community.  If you are available to help out on the day, can you please contact Mr Marshall at
