Fun Run

Thursday, June 29th, 2017

We’re holding the CUA School Fun-Run as a major fundraising event this year!  The event will be held on Wednesday 9 August. This is a sponsorship based fundraiser, and we’re looking to raise $10,000 to go towards our long-term goal of new play equipment.

The CUA School Fun-Run is a healthy fundraiser that we hope you’ll get behind. The event sends the right message to students about having fun while getting involved and being active.

We’re looking for all students to participate and we’re organising a great day for our community.

The sponsorship forms and parent letters were sent home with your child on Monday. Students who raise $10 or more will receive a reward and just by jumping online, your family has the chance to win a $30,000 Ultimate Family Experience!

Thanks for supporting your child’s wellbeing and we hope to see you at school for the event.

It is with great pleasure that I share with you that Mrs Carrie Chalmers has been appointed to the role of Acting Assistant Principal at our school for the remainder of the school year. Mrs Chalmers will be taking over the Wellbeing and Administration role from Mrs Maxwell when she departs for Maternity Leave at the end of the term. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Mrs Chalmers on her appointment to the role.

Mrs Debbie Ness will be replacing Mrs Chalmers in her role as classroom teacher. Mrs Ness is an experienced teacher who is excited to be joining Park Ridge Primary School and has already been working alongside Mrs Chalmers to get to know her new grade.
