Super Hero Day- Monday 29 May

As part of the ‘Missions: Going Beyond’ focus at PCS, the school will be supporting HeartKids Australia in raising funds. All monies raised on this day will go directly to the only charity that supports children born with or who acquire heart disease – congenital heart disease (CHD) - in their life. Sadly, this numbers over 32,000 children under the age of eighteen in Australia. Our school community is not immune, with some students and families impacted by being or having a Heart Kid.

 

On Monday 29 May, students are encouraged to dress as a super hero for the day. This could be a comic or movie superhero. You may wish to dress as a sports star or in your favourite team colours. Students are asked to bring a gold coin donation to HeartKids Australia for dressing up as a super hero. You do not have to go out and purchase new clothing for the day.

 

It is requested that students dress appropriately for the day. All shorts, shirts, t-shirts, skirts and dresses must be of an appropriate length. Shirts must not be midriff or singlets (unless a t-shirt is worn underneath) and must be of appropriate fit, with no inappropriate logos or slogans. Tights and leggings are not permitted.

 

Please note:

  • Please be careful with any capes, as the students need to be able to function as normal at school for the day.

  • Students need to wear appropriate closed-in footwear and those students who have Design and Technology or Science on the day must bring their school shoes.

  • Students who have PE will be required to bring their PE uniform to school.

 

A cake stall will be run on the day. Donations of cakes, slices and biscuits would be greatly appreciated. Please include an ingredients list with your donation due to allergies.

Thank you for your support.

Anzac Day Commemoration Service 2017

On Friday 28 April, Years 3-12 came together to pay honour, and show appreciation to our service men and women, past and present.

 

The Ceremony was designed not to glorify war or praise victory, but to remember those who have served our country during times of conflict and crisis, and to reflect upon their selfless sacrifice.

 

We were humbled by the presence of our special guests including: Flight Lieutenant Julie Rowley, who delivered our Address; Mr Peter Todd, RSL Vice-President, Penrith Sub‑Branch; Ms Prue Car MP, State Member for Londonderry; Clr Ross Fowler, OAM, representing The Mayor of Penrith, Clr John Thain; as well as Church and School Executive.

 

Throughout the Service, we had contributions from Junior, Middle and Senior School, with prayers, Bible Readings and a special acknowledgement of the Anzac Biscuit. We also took time to honour past PCS students who have served and are currently serving in the Defence Force.

 

The wreath laying service and formal procession was particularly moving as dignitaries, school and church staff, as well as students joined together in quiet solidarity, paying tribute to our fallen soldiers. FLTLT Julie Rowley delivered an incredibly powerful and engaging address, which brought relevance and inspiration to everyone listening.

 

It was a privilege to join together as a school community to pay tribute to the ANZAC’s, and we trust that all involved had a memorable and inspiring experience.
