New school funding priorities
Now we are well into the school year, and hopefully everyone has hit their stride. Thanks to everyone who attended our first hybrid P&C meeting back on campus Tuesday of this week.
School hall revitalisation
A very exciting meeting as we presented the new school funding priorities, including the very exciting school hall precinct revitalisation project. It is a grand vision on behalf of the school to upgrade the entire hall precinct to provide a modern building that is fit for purpose, able to support the school music and drama programs, provide much needed additional teaching and administrative space and upgrade the existing restroom facilities for the stage 1 and 2 children.
This project will be an enormous undertaking, and despite extensive funding and design support from the Department of Education, will require significant community fundraising to make it possible within the ambitious timeframe outlined. The CPS P&C Association is proud to support the school’s ambitions, but we need your help to do so.
Help us raise funds
Anyone who has any interest in the project, and would like to enquire how they might assist with arranging and administering fundraising initiatives, please don’t hesitate to reach out for more information or register your interest in volunteering for the P&C.
Finally, thanks to the wonderful work of Amanda Collier, we got the opportunity to trial the new CPS P&C website. Keep an eye on the newsletter, as we hope to launch this publicly in the coming weeks, as a way to better deliver information about the school P&C administered programs, and how you can get involved.
Saturday, April 24 saw the start of the Eastern Suburbs Combined Primary School Netball Association (ESCPSNA). This year Clovelly Netball Club have 100 children participating in the competition. Week 1 of competition saw the two Year 2 teams (Diamonds and Wolves) battle it out against each other. Despite the fierce competition on the court, once the game had finished everyone came together for a friendly cheer and photo.
Friends of the Band
Weekly rehearsals are progressing well and our musicians are developing each week. Last week our Senior Band provided a wonderful performance at assembly. We hope that our senior musicians can inspire the younger children to join the band when they are in Year 3.
Senior Band Camp: 28th-30th May
The Senior Band are preparing for their musical coming of age at Band Camp over the weekend of 28th-30th May at Stanwell Park. This annual event (postponed last year) is an incredible opportunity for the Band to spend the weekend together learning from amazing tutors.

Murray will continue to load assignments in Smart Music this term. SmartMusic helps students learn their parts of band music at home. They can slow down and loop the music as well as see fingering for notes, before recording and submitting the assignments back to Murray to review. If you are having any technical difficulties please let Murray know or contact us.
