 Running Club  

 Running club has started off with a bang, with a total of 894km ran so far over the first half of the year term.  It is fantastic to see so many kids out, getting their bodies moving early in the morning before a full day of learning.  Just a reminder of our new start time of 8:10am and running through until 8:40am.  With the Churchlands PS Cross Country around the corner, running club is a great time to get yourself ready for the day.

For new families to Churchlands PS, running club is where students run laps around the oval 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,
  • help maintain a healthy weight
  • 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 8.25am.  Milo is an acknowledgment 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.

FIFA Women’s World Cup – Adopt a Nation

A message from the department:

While most of you will be shouting loud for the Matildas throughout the Women’s World Cup, we would love our primary schools to get behind one of the teams set to play in Perth during the tournament.

Nine nations will compete in 5 matches in Perth:

  • Denmark
  • China
  • Canada
  • Ireland
  • Panama
  • Jamaica
  • Haiti
  • Morocco
  • Colombia

As part of a whole of school approach to adopting one of these national teams, your school can:

  • fly the nation’s colours
  • show support through a range of school activities
  • research the country and link back to the curriculum.
  • CPS has joined in the fun, and we have been allocated Colombia for the tournament.
