Interschool Swimming Carnival 

In week 10 of term 1, the CPS Interschool Swimming competed in our cluster swimming carnival. It was a great team effort across all year levels and every swimmer should be extremely proud of how awesome they were.  Churchlands PS did an amazing job to finish 6th overall, with some impressive swimming across the team. CPS finished the day with 3 first places, 13 second places, and 5 third places. As a teacher, I am extremely proud of how all the swimmers conducted themselves in and out of the pool.   

A huge congratulations to the following students who were overall champions in their year group; Magnus F – Year 4 Boys & Lara S – Year 6 Girls. 

Interschool Winter Sports 

Our Interschool Winter school sports are back for 2023!! CPS will be putting together two netball teams, one soccer and one football team to compete against our neighbouring schools for the 2023 Eagles Cup.  For the selection of the teams, year 6 students will get preference to fill the spots available and then after that, the year 5 students will be invited to fill the remaining spots.

Week 5 – Friday 26 May vs City Beach at Churchlands PS

More details will be put out once all teams have been selected, and we get closer to the time of the fixtures. 

Running Club 

Running club has started off with a bang, with a total of 402km run so far in term 1.  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 for our new start time of  8:10 am and running through until 8:40 am.  With the Churchlands PS Cross Country around the corner, running club is a great opportunity to prepare yourself for the big 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.    

This is a reminder that mugs for Milo need to be placed on the table outside the undercover area before 8.25am.  Milo is an acknowledgement of 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.
