Sports Report – Swimming Carnival, Interschool Swimming Carnival, Running Club

What a wonderful day we had down at the CPS swimming carnival on Wednesday 22 March.  All the year 3-6 students from CPS packed their bags and made the trek down to Churchlands Senior High School.  We welcomed back parents to this event this year, and it was great to see a big turnout and thank-you for the support you showed the CPS students. 

 It was amazing to watch swimmers of differing abilities give their very best efforts and do it with a smile on their faces.  The Churchlands Way was visible across all age levels, especially RESILIENCE as so many swimmers went outside of their comfort zone to complete their races.  

 A massive thanks to all the teachers that help on the day with various roles, these events are not possible without your amazing talents.  To all the senior students who helped out with various roles and guided some of our younger students in their races, thank-you. Thank-you to all the parents who helped with the timing throughout the day.  Lastly to all the CPS students you are all AWESOME and I am always blown away by the positive attitude you all show at these events. 

 Congratulations to our first recipients of our Churchlands Spirit Awards, for showing the Churchlands Way at the 2023 Swimming Carnival.

 Interschool Swimming Carnival (Year 4-6) 

 The Interschool swimming carnival is happening on Wednesday 5 April at HBF Stadium in Mt Claremont.  All those students who have been selected, have been notified and permission slips sent out via Skoolbag.  Selection was based on the individual times of each competitor at the CPS carnival in week 8.  A program of events will be sent home with each child on Monday.  This program (with competitor’s events) can also be viewed (Monday onwards) on the middle and senior school noticeboards (Located outside room 7 & 13) 

 Running Club 

Running club has started off with a bang, with a total of 349km ran so far this 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. 

 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 get 5 laps done.
