Cardiff North Public School children are very proud of their school. Part of this pride is reflected in their desire to wear their new school uniform. There have been some questions raised by parents regarding the phasing out of our old uniforms. It is anticipated that by the end of this year, the whole school will be in the new uniforms. I have included a list of the uniform items with this Bulletin, including the items being phased out this year and their replacements. Also just a reminder to please label your child’s jumpers so we can return them promptly to their class if they leave them around the school. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions regarding the uniform.
Our school is proud to start our Green Waste Service with Lake Macquarie City council, as part of our prize in the Sustainability awards.
Last Friday, Mr Piggott and Mrs Savage took the Cross Country team to Federal Park to compete in the Crossroads Zone Cross Country Carnival. The Crossroads Zone is made up of 17 primary schools from our area. The students all performed to the best of their ability and proudly represented the school.
A special mention to Braydon , who came first in the 10 year boys event; Marcus who came first in the 8/9 year old boys and Asamoah , who came third in the 11 year boys. These three boys will be off to represent our zone at the regional carnival. – Mr Piggott
Our staff development day this term was held at Cardiff High School. We joined 6 other schools from the Cardiff Community of Schools and over 160 staff members for the day. Staff enjoyed presentations by Dr Bob Wheway, a STEM expert from the University of Wollongong. Then a presentation on Effective Instruction from Toni-Hatten Roberts from the “Good to Great Schools” team. Our new Director, Louise Gallagher spoke about her new role and how supportive she would be in helping us achieve excellence in our schools. At the end of the day we were fortunate to have Anh Do, the author, actor, comedian and artist present his life story for us. He was extremely inspirational, having an amazing, positive outlook on life.
