SASS Recognition Week
Last week we recognised the work of our School Administrative and Support (SASS) Staff. It was an opportunity for the school to acknowledge the vital role that SAS Staff play in education. School Administrative and Support Staff whether they work in the office, on the school grounds or in a classroom setting, are important contributors to the success of the school and our students’ education. I’d like to thank our wonderful Cronulla Public School SAS Staff for their hard work and dedication in support our teachers, students and parents.
Check-in Assessments Years 3 and 5
This term students in Year 3 and Year 5 will participate in an alternative Reading and Numeracy check-in assessment. The Check-in assessment is a NSW Department of Education online reading and numeracy assessment available to support schools to assess and monitor Year 3 and Year 5 student learning following the period of learning from home. The Check-in assessments can supplement existing school practices to identify how students are performing in literacy and numeracy and to help teachers tailor their teaching more specifically to student needs. Year 5 students completed their assessments last week and Year 3 students will complete their assessments later in the term.
Parent access to the school site continues to be restricted. Morning drop off and afternoon pick-up arrangements currently in place are to be maintained. A reminder that all gates are closed between 9:45am – 3:10pm. For students who arrive after 9:45am or need to leave school early, parents will need to call the office (9523 5098) and a staff member will meet them at the gate.

This Friday is Jersey Day at Cronulla Public School. We are asking all students (and staff) to wear their favourite sporting jersey over their normal school sports uniform. This wonderful day is aimed at beginning the conversation with family, friends and the community about organ donation. Looking forward to seeing everyone in their favourite sports jerseys this Friday, 4th September.
Cronulla Public School will be participating in Jersey Day on Friday 4 September.
We are asking students and staff to wear their favourite sporting jersey and begin the conversation with family, friends and the community about raising awareness on organ donation.
This campaign is all about raising awareness – there is no requirement to raise funds. Simply wear your favourite sporting jersey to school on Friday 4 September.
Let’s get behind this awesome campaign and have some fun in our jerseys.

Every Wednesday, students are encouraged to come to school with a lunch box that is waste free. Waste-free lunches contain only items that are eaten, composted or recycled. They don’t contain wrappers or packaging that will be thrown in the rubbish bin.
The purpose of the Waste-Free Wednesday is to:
