Wonderful SCPS Community!
We’ve gone from #StayAtHome to all events up and running, so it’s all a bit crazy!
This newsletter is also a bit late going out, so apologies for that! Lots to talk about, so let’s get into it!
COLOUR EXPLOSION FUN RUN – WELL DONE ALL!
WHAT A DAY!!! 🌈🤩🏃
Thank you so so much everyone who came along, volunteered, threw colour, ran, bought souvlaki, ate cake… ALL THE THINGS!
Massive shout out to Kate Anderson who lead the whole event like the star she is, and Pia Johns who put together the obstacle course.
Final number still to be worked out, but we raised nearly $27,000 in sponsorships, plus another $3,000 on the day. AMAZING!
(Expenses to be taken off that, plus payment to the Fun Run organisers, so final profit yet to be determined).
Congrats to KA for their nail biting win to top fundraising class 🥇. A special lunch is coming your way. Massive effort by KS and 2J to take out places 🥈 and 🥉… Iceblocks for all await you.
Huge thanks to the P&C Exec plus Trish Fisher and staff for all their efforts in getting these amazing events up and running again. I’m so proud of our team and community 🤩
THANK YOU ALL 🙏
P&C MEETING – WEDNESDAY 2nd JUNE
All welcome to the next P&C Meeting this Wednesday 2nd June. We will be holding this meeting both in-person with a dial in Zoom option. Please look out for the details in the P&C Facebook Group or via your Class Parent email.
If you have any agenda items, please ensure you submit them to firstname.lastname@example.org by lunchtime Monday 31st May.
ETHICS CALL OUT
Each week our committed ethics teachers deliver lessons to 88 students across Kindy, Years 1, 3 and 5 at South Coogee Public School. Kindy have been discussing questions, puzzlement and what is okay. Year 3 have been discussing being greedy and Year 5 voting and punishment.
Ethics is a great opportunity for children in the junior years to develop core skills such as listening to others, taking turns to speak and giving reasons to support their ideas. Children in the senior years develop their critical thinking and discussion-based skills.
We are in desperate need for more volunteer ethics teachers! We still have around 100 children on the waitlist. Volunteering as an ethics teacher is a great opportunity to become involved in the school community in an interesting and unique way, while also giving you the chance to develop new skills that are useful in work and home life.
You do not need to have previous teaching experience. Primary Ethics provides the lesson content and full, free training. Classes run every Thursday during term, 2-2:30pm for K-2 and 2:30-3pm for 3-6.
FIESTA 2021 – SATURDAY 13th NOVEMBER

Make sure you’re following our Facebook Page, as well as our new Instagram page!
Until next time,
