There is so much to be thankful for at our wonderful school. Following are just some of the exciting things that have been happening within the life of CCS.
Years 7 and 8 Camp
Years 7 and 8 returned safely after enjoying a wonderful outdoor education experience at Burrill Pines, south of Ulladulla. I visited the camp site on the first afternoon greeting the Year 8 group as they returned from their strenuous climb to the top of Pigeon House Mountain on the Budawang Range. Soon after the Year 7 group arrived after a coastal walk of 7.4 km from Easts Beach. I am excited by the Outdoor Education plans that have been prepared by Mr Nicholls and Mr Grant to be included in the curriculum for 2019.
Grandparents’ Day was fantastic! Thank you to the Grandparents and special friends who attended. It was lovely to see the enjoyment being had by all.
