Interschool Athletics Carnival
At the end of term 3, a select amount of year 3-6 students competed in our annual Interschool Athletics Carnival at Churchlands Primary School. Everyone that participated should be extremely proud of their efforts on the day. Throughout the day, The Churchlands Way of Respect, Resilience, Engage and Excel was evident in the way, that all students conducted themselves in and out of competition. A big thank-you to the Churchlands community for their continued support with all events held within our community. Without the support of the wider community this event would not have been the success it was.
A huge congratulations to Jordan S-F from room 8 for finishing up as the overall runner-up for the year 3 boys.
Before and After School Activities
During the school term there will be activities happening most days of the week to keep your kids active before and after school. Over the next few weeks, you will see flyers promoting various activities, if you are interested, please contact those organisations directly.
There is also running club, that will be starting back up in week 2 on Wednesday 17 October, and will run until week 9 (Wednesday 6 December).
Running club is on Wednesday mornings starting at 8:10am. 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 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 do 5 laps.
