The races are going to be run in 2 blocks, with our PP-year 3 students running from 9.15 am through until recess (10.45 am).  Our year 4-6 students will compete in their races, from 11.15 am through until lunchtime (1.05 pm).  There will be a girl and a boy race for each year level, meaning there will be 14 races over the day. Presentations of medallions and ribbons will be after each block, and the overall (faction points) presentation will be after our year 6 races. 


To be very transparent there will be presentations of medallions for the champions and runner-up place-getters in each race.  Also, there will be ribbons presented to those who place 3rd -5th place.

Interschool Swimming Carnival 

Last week on Wednesday 24 April, 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 3rd overall, with some impressive swimming across the team. CPS finished the day with 11 first places, 8 second places, and 6 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 excelled throughout the carnival and were acknowledged for their fantastic swimming.  

Magnus Fredriksen, Year 5 Boys Overall Runner-up 

Filip Kyrachok, Year 6 Boys Overall Champion

Running Club 

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 8.25 am.  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.
