It was a busy end to the last term at Canowindra Public School (CPS). Stage 1 students visited the Historical Museum in Canowindra as part of their History unit.
Volunteers showed the students around the museum, introducing them to some of the old relics. Students were fascinated with the old telephones, farm machinery, musical instruments and the schoolroom with the old desks and ink pots. It was a great experience for students to see this aspect of Canowindra’s history.
The Primary Athletics Carnival was held with students achieving great results.
Ava Thornberry equalled the 8 to 10 years girls high jump record of 1.14 metres. Forty-five students will be representing CPS at District Athletics which will be held in Cowra at a date to be confirmed.
Age champions were:
• 8 – 10 Years Girls: Claire Pengilly
• 8 – 10 Years Boys: Will Swords and Jay Burn
• 11 Years Girls: Hayley Hampton
• 11 Years Boys: Jack Lawler
• 12 – 13 Years Girls: Adison Newcombe
• 12 – 13 Years Boys: Noah Hamer
Year 5 students had a two-day excursion to Canberra where they visited the Australian Institute of Sport, Australian War Memorial, National Museum of Art, National Capital Exhibition Centre, Royal Australian Mint, Parliament House and the Electoral Education Centre.
Federal Member for Calare, Andrew Gee greeted the students at Parliament House. It was a wonderful experience for the students and they represented the school beautifully.
Our infants’ students have enjoyed participating in gymnastic lessons hosted by Central West Gymnastics. They learnt some great gross motor skills which they will continue to use in classes.
