Last week, Canowindra Public School’s captains and prefects went to Sydney for the Young Leaders Conference at the National Convention Centre in Darling Harbour. The eight leaders were amongst hundreds of primary school students from all over New South Wales, who got to listen to four motivational speakers, including David Campbell and Jimmy Rees, share their incredible stories. The students were lucky enough to meet some of these speakers and take photos with them afterwards. As well as attending the conference, the eight students, who consisted of Noah Hamer, Lacey Duguid, Jonty Bullock, Macey Slattery, Jeremiah Tapim, Sophie White, Levi Strage and Olivia Mackenzie, were able to experience many of the wonderful sights of Sydney.
On Monday, our infants students showed off their Easter hat creations at the Easter hat parade. It was great to have parents, carers and grandparents back at our school to enjoy the event.
CPS’s stage two students went off to the Civic Theatre in Orange on Tuesday to see a production of the 91 Story Treehouse. The students had a great day and thoroughly enjoyed the show.
Unfortunately, our infants and primary cross-country carnival had to be postponed due to the recent rain. Both events have been rescheduled to term two.
Six of our students competed in Sydney for the state swimming championships at Homebush Bay on Wednesday. Ava Thornberry, Will Swords and Riley Dick competed in the 50 metre freestyle event and Lucy Neville, Claire Pengilly, Hayley Stanbury and Ava Thornberry competed in the junior girls relay. At the time of printing, results were not available. We wish all six students the best of luck.
Thank you to all our parents and carers who attended the three way interviews in weeks seven and eight. It was a great opportunity for parents, teachers and students to work together on the students’ learning goals.
We hope everyone has a safe and happy Easter.
