YEAR 7 NEWS
Welcome back Year 7 families.  We’ve hit the ground running this term with NAPLAN preparation, co-curricular club days, formal uniforms and our inaugural Junior Secondary Forum.  It was excellent to meet so many parents at our parent-teacher evening on April 28.  A special pat on the back for the Year 7 students who attended the ANZAC day ceremony in the hall – you were right up the front and displayed respect and reverence befitting the occasion.
 
This term, Year 7 students have been offered four different co-curricular clubs to participate in: chess, origami, drama & footy.  The clubs are led by Ms Corbett, Mr Anderson and Mr Newton and we have been blown away by how enthusiastic the Year 7s are with getting involved at lunchtime. These clubs also give our house-group captains an opportunity to demonstrate their leadership skills by assisting house-group teachers every Tuesday and Friday.  A big thank you to all involved for making this possible.
 
CSHS held our first Year 7 NAPLAN exams this year.  Students were prepared by practising their seating arrangements beforehand and by having a hot breakfast provided by the school before each exam. A huge thank you to Ms Long for coordinating the breakfasts for both NAPLAN cohorts as well as Ms Haynes, Mr Linnane and Ms Carter for your help with the Year 7s.  Year 12 and Year 8 student helpers were also invaluable in preparing and serving breakfast for the Year 7s.
 
We look forward to participating in the Resolve Leadership days that will be held on Monday & Tuesday in Week 6. Students will participate in workshops that explore collective identity, global citizenship and how to combat negative labels. Year 7s will also experience a Shake n Stir theatre production about how to manage the transition into high school on June 4 as part of their Access and Care program.
 
On Friday, May 29 the school’s first PRIDE excursion for the year will take place.  It was excellent to see that over 80 Year 7 students were invited to attend the PRIDE excursion which is a reward for achieving excellent or very good in behaviour and effort across all subject areas.  No doubt this will be a highlight for Year 7 students and an excellent incentive for them to keep working to the best of their ability.
