Swimming Carnival 2024 

The CPS swimming carnival on Tuesday 19 March was a fantastic event filled with camaraderie, support, and incredible displays of resilience! It was heart-warming to witness students of all abilities giving their best efforts and embracing the Churchlands Way with such positivity. Events like these truly showcase the strength of the CPS school community. Thank you for the wonderful contributions of teachers, senior students, and parents in making the carnival a success. And of course, a big round of applause to the CPS students for their awesome attitudes and enthusiasm. It was a memorable day for everyone involved!

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 8.25am.  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.
