Welcome to our website....

Christ the King School is a community where individuals are encouraged to express themselves; where the teachings of Jesus Christ are embraced with enthusiasm and used as guidelines for living together in family and wider society; where love and zest for learning are fostered, where all members feel welcome, respected and safe.

Christ the King School is part of a dynamic group of schools in one of the fastest growing areas of Australia.  As part of St Eugene’s Parish, Burpengary, we have direct access to St Eugene College, a newly opened Catholic college only 10 minutes away. 

Our school has new classrooms, library, admin block and hall and is equipped with the latest resources and technology.  By far, our greatest asset is the outstanding staff who, together with parents, create a close family atmosphere in a small school setting.  Our learning support programme and network of specialist teachers and school officers ensure that each child’s individual needs are catered for. Our community is made up of people from varied social and religious backgrounds.  We provide an inclusive Catholic learning programme for everyone.

 

Latest News & Events

This week we also celebrate Science Week however due to all of the excitement of Bookweek we will kick off celebrations for Science week on Monday with the Street Science Show from QUT. Science is always a high priority in our classroom learning and I am always amazed at the wonderful inquiry learning going on when I talk to students. On the Facebook page this week and next we will have some fun (and safe) experiments you can try at home.

This Sunday, both of our CtK Optiminds teams will be performing at Ferny Grove SHS. These students (and parents) have given up a lot of time, inside and outside of school time and I am so proud of them, in particular in the way they are overcoming all the obstacles that are part of a challenge of this nature. Please wish them all the best if you see them around the school in our quest for the ‘Great Glass Head’

PREP & PREP/1 AUSTRALIA ZOO EXCURSION
A huge thank you to the parent volunteers who attended the Prep Red and Prep/1 Magenta excursion to Australia Zoo last Friday. Your help and enthusiasm were greatly appreciated.

The children had an excellent time and enjoyed watching the Wildlife Warriors show, riding the train, and patting a koala and touching crocodiles. The tigers, giraffes and zebras were highlights also.

It was truly a special time to spend with the students. Their behaviour was excellent and they were exceptional ambassadors for CtK.

SPORTS NEWS
Congratulations to all of our athletes that attended the Redcliffe District Athletics Carnival last Thursday & Friday. We were up against some tough opposition but all our students packed their Never Give Up attitudes and performed the the best of their ability. Our students were always Encouraging Others not only fiends from CtK but also from other schools which made me very proud. When I look back on the 2 days, there were nerves a plenty especially from our 10 year olds but they showed courage& persistence and proved they are the future star athletes of CtK. A special thank you to Mrs Wells, Mrs Deen & Mrs Brown for their hard work on the track, in the field and in the tent. I cannot forget the wonderful parents that came to support the team, you are amazing! In particular to Mrs Grange for ferrying our bags to and from the track while we walked and Mrs Gray for her expertise supporting all our athletes and then instigating the pack up and delivery of the tents back to school. Thank you!

We congratulate James for being selected to represent Redcliffe District in Long Jump. James will compete on the Sunshine Coast in early September against other Sunshine Coast Districts & we wish him all the very best of luck.

Congratulations to our Sport Award winners for this week - Heath & James for excellence in District Athletics and showing that "Never Give Up" enthusiasm for all your events.

Interschool Sport starts back this Friday with our 6 & 7 students participating in Touch Football. Boys Touch will be played at Talobilla Park & Girls Touch at Frawley Fields in Clontarf. I'm excited to see how the students use their "Footy Skills" against other schools. There will not be games for us next week with the students on camp.
