R U OK ? 


R U OK day is our national day of action, when we remind Australians that every day is the day to ask, "Are you OK?".  If someone in your world is struggling with life's ups and downs, this small action can make a difference in someone's life and has even more meaning this year.  Let's all be kind to each other.


This is a link to a really good video to share with your children and gets the conversation started about the steps they can take when concerned about a friend


Kind regards,

Spoonville at CJC


The CJC Spoonville is growing.  Be sure to make one to our collection!


What is Spoonville? Creating a Spoonville together is a fun way to improve children’s mental health during lockdown. Like the neighbourhood bear hunt and rainbow movements, it aims to put smiles on the faces of children during this difficult period. Building a Spoonville at CJC also helps to connect children with the school while they are learning from home.  If your home is more than 5km away, send us a photo of your masterpiece, or send it by mail to the school!


We are hoping to see some more very creative spoons in our CJC Spoonville. You could make a spoon that looks like yourself or a princess spoon, spoonycorns (unicorn spoons), animal spoons and superhero spoons.  Any old wooden spoon from your kitchen will do. The idea is that you get creative and have some FUN!!!


Le Village des Cuillères à CJC !


Qu’est-ce que le Village des Cuillères ? C’est nous qui bâtissons ce village, voilà un excellent moyen de nous remonter le moral pendant le confinement.  Tout comme la chasse aux oursons ou le mouvement des arc-en-ciel, ce village a pour but de mettre un sourire sur le visage des enfants pendant cette période difficile.  La construction de ce village vise également à reconnecter les enfants avec leur école alors qu’ils sont en continuité pédagogique à distance.  Si vous habitez à plus de 5km, envoyez-nous une photo de votre chef d’œuvre ou envoyé le par la poste à l’adresse de l’école!


Nous sommes impatients de découvrir vos talents artistiques dans notre Village des Cuillères.  Vous pourriez créer une cuillère autoportrait, une princesse, un unicorne, votre animal ou superhéros préféré.  N’importe quelle vieille cuillère de bois de votre cuisine fera l’affaire. Ce qui compte est de créer tout en s’amusant !
