COORPAROO STATE SCHOOL SWIM CLUB

What's it all about by Prep D Parent Rep Josh Lawrence

CSS Swim Club meets every Friday night in Term 4 and Term 1 at our school pool.  At each "swim meet" the kids get to choose which disciplines (freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke or butterfly) they want to swim in.   While they are races, it's really all about each swimmer racing themselves.  Each race is officially timed and after each meet, results are released, so you'll know straight away whether your child is improving or all over the place!   With each swim the kids earn points towards the end of season awards (biggest improvement and age champion etc). 

At each meet there is a full canteen being run (BBQ, drinks etc) and a bar, so it's a great chance to unwind at the end of a long week while the kids get a chance to do something fun to end their week too! It really is great fun so please consider it.  Oh.... one important piece of info.  I can't recall off the top of my head if there is a minimum age but basically if your child can swim 25 metres they can participate. For the youngsters in the crowd - such as many of the preps - they have "little'ns" races.   During these races Grade 5 and 6 students will assist in every lane.  It's a great entry to Swim Club for the younger members.   There is a cost for all timed swimmers (that doesn't include little'ns races) with the cost decreasing for each sibling.  

So what are you waiting for?   Check everything out at https://coorparooswimclub.com

 

TUCKSHOP

Have you got a spare 20 minutes after school drop off?  If so, we would love you to help us get the day going in the Tuck Shop.  No experience or cooking is required.

Just stop in any Tuesday to Friday.  The roller door is down in the mornings before school but we are busy inside.  Please come to the side door and you'll find us inside.

Thank you

Sunny, Liz and Adela 

 

 

 

A VULY TRAMPOLINE WAS WON AT THE COORPAROO CARNIVAL!

Our friends at Vuly have put up their ultimate trampoline for one lucky raffle winner at the Coorparoo Carnival on 15 October 2017. Their Thunder Summer XL is their biggest springless model available, and the whole prize is worth over $3,000 – including delivery to the winner and a free Shade Cover! Vuly are based in Brisbane, and their Thunder Summer not only has a fully enclosed safety net, but the winner will also have full warranty coverage and half-price replacement parts even when the warranty is finished.

There’s no better way to unwind after a long school day than bouncing in your backyard. Before getting started on that homework, hopping on the trampoline gets oxygen-rich blood to your brain – letting you concentrate for longer and work at your best!.

  • Welcome everyone’s views, opinions, input and suggestions and aim to make decisions on behalf of the school community, representing a wide cross-section of our families.
  • Reorganise fundraising events such as our biennial festival (fete), spell-a-thons, etc., which help the school to provide resources above and beyond those provided by Education Queensland.
  • Organise events and functions to bring our teaching staff in closer contact with our parent body, to encourage better communication and understanding of each other’s roles.

Elections also take place for positions on the Executive Committee for the following year.
