As we are entering our final part of the year, I have no doubt that we are going to finish it with the rush of end of year activities.

Dear Families and Friends of CTK,

In this way we provide a landscape for children to flourish and to grow at Christ the King School.
Welcome to Week 4, I hope you have all been managing the cold mornings and evenings that we have had over the last couple of weeks. Our Year 6 social justice group worked with our School Youth Minister Ben Ellul to coordinate our Winter Warmers Day.
I trust that you will have enjoyed the opportunity to be with your children, just relaxing and enjoying the time together, and hopefully able to move out and about. The children are very happy to be back, and so many seem to have grown and spurted up over the break.
A very special warm welcome to our new Reception students who commenced last Monday and have brought such joy to the community. We welcome – Samara, Evie, Isla, Asher and Ashlee.
Starting school is an exciting time for everyone. We hope that all the new children and families enjoy their time and learning journey with the Christ the King Community.
The end of Semester 1 is upon us with the hope that we will slowly begin to return to a stable normality. We pray that our State stays safe and that all people adhere to the advice from our Senior Health advisors. It was wonderful to see all the children enjoying their creative efforts for Crazy Hair Day last Friday, there were some wonderful designs and creations. Some staff came up with some clever designs too!!
