Cambridge East School



Cross Country

Hopefully this week we will get our Cross Country in before the weather closes in yet again.  Tomorrow (Tuesday 19th August) we will be having an early lunch at 11.25am so we are able to leave to walk down to the Lake by 11.45am (please note that students will require a cut lunch and drink as there will be no lunch orders).  We are aiming to start the first race at 12.15pm with the juniors starting first and working up through the age groups. We would love to have as many parents, caregivers and other relatives come along to support our learners in this important event.  We should be all done by 2.30pm to walk back to school.

 Mr M's Farewell

Thank you everyone for making Mr Meridith's last day and assembly very special.  We wish to acknowledge Barry's service to education for 44 years of which 27 were with our school.  We were lucky to have Barry as part of our school for so long and his work with the schools graphic that highlights those important values of Respect and Excellence, will live on in our schools culture for many years to come.  Thank you Mr M for all your help driving our school to be a great place for the education of children.  Enjoy your retirement and we look forward to having you pop in to see us.


Please note we have had a change of date due to a clash with Oxford Pies arriving home, our new date for our Doughraiser is Wednesday 3rd September.  A big thank you Domino's Pizza Cambridge for their continued support.

  Maths Week Parade

On Thursday 14th of August Cambridge East School had a Figure Me out Parade and every class dressed up. The Maths Week Crew has photos of dices, money, witches and lots of other imaginative things to do with maths. Every class from 1 to 16 walked and ran around the court showing off their brilliant outfits. Elizabeth, Zoe and Jessi were using the microphone to ask classes to walk around the court and towards the end were calling out basic facts and times tables while kids shouted out the answer. Sophia (Me) and Necha were VERY impressed with everyone’s costumes and enthusiasm. We hope that everyone including the parents watching had an awesome time at the parade!
