Year 6 Transition Evening 2020 – Monday 6 July 2020

In lieu of our on-site parents’ information evening planned for 6 July, we will this year be hosting a live presentation with each form group on Monday 6 July from 6pm using the ‘Microsoft Teams’ platform. This will consist of a video presentation from our Principal, Mr David James; Progress Lead, Miss Aless Cambio; and your child’s form tutor.  This will be followed by a live Q&A session with your child’s tutor and a member of our Leadership Team. This is a great opportunity for the whole form group and parents to ask questions live.

For those of you who are not familiar with Teams, we attach below a link to step by step instructions on how to connect to a Microsoft Teams public event on a laptop or desktop computer. You can sign in as a guest and do not need to have an account,

Please note that if you plan to use an iPad or a mobile device on the evening, then you will need to install the MS Teams app beforehand.

Each live event will be hosted by your child’s individual form tutor and the links for these specific meetings are below for your reference:

CCS Friends Lockdown Family Recipe Book 2020 Competition

Lockdown has given us all the opportunity to get busy in the kitchen, cooking and baking sugary, spicy treats for the whole family, and CCS Friends would love to create a LOCKDOWN feast of all your most scrummy dishes and bakes to share with our community online.

It doesn’t have to be a student’s recipe, it could be a grownup’s, your mum or dad’s, or even your grandparent’s recipe! All recipes are welcome, however we ask for no more than 1 recipe per family.

The competition is open to all of our students and please see the attached poster below for details of how to enter.

We look forward to seeing all of your brilliant bakes and creations!

FAQ and Student Transition Booklet

Thank you for all the brilliant questions that have been sent in over the past week. Hopefully this video will answer some of the frequently asked questions and make you feel a little more comfortable about your move to CCS Secondary in September.

As well as this video, we have created a series of booklets. We are hoping these booklets will include everything you need to prepare for September. The CCS Year 6 Transition Student Booklet has important information about the school day; a map of the school site, an example timetable and the amazing extra curriculars on offer, as well as so much more. Have a read through this booklet carefully and familiarise yourself with all the important information.

The CCS Year 6 Transition Tasks Booklet has challenge tasks from each subject area for you to complete over the next few months. We would like you to bring these challenges into school in September to share with your tutor and fellow class mates.

A Parent Guide 2020 has also been attached to this post and sent home covering everything that you and your parents need to know. Sit down together, grab a snack and make your way through it – it’s a little chunky!

One final thing, once you have completed any of the challenges, can you please take a quick piccie and send it to the year 6 transition email. This will allow me to see all the hard work and amazing things are Year 6s are doing to prepare for CCS in September.

Stay safe and speak to you all soon!
