Maitland Area School

Maitland | Yorke Peninsula | South Australia

Hello everyone, it has been an extremely busy start to the term with lots of exciting things happening at the Point Pearce Campus.  

We had a lovely bacon and egg breakfast in week 3 attended by community members and CYS staff.  

Students have been involved in swimming lessons at the Maitland Campus and I have been extremely impressed with the progress they have made with their skills and confidence.  

FLO / FLEX Program

As you would have seen in the previous editions of the newsletter we have launched our FLO/FLEX program with secondary students at the Point Pearce TAFE on Tuesdays.  Cori Pollard, Eddie Newchurch and myself are overseeing the program and so far it has been extremely successful with around 10 students working towards completing their SACE.

Welcome to 2017 School Year from Point Pearce Campus. We are very pleased to see some extra students attending this term. We have six Junior Primary Students and six Pre-school students. Our Occasional Care has four enrolments at this stage 


From term 1 2017 parents and carers with children enrolled in a government preschool, rural care, occasional care, family day care or respite care service will be asked to provide evidence of their child’s immunisation status under a new procedure aimed at protecting children against vaccine preventable diseases (VPD).

Please bring this information to the school when enrolling or bringing a child to our campus. 

Thank you for your co-operation.

What a busy end to the term we have had!  

We visited Port Pirie for a “Patch Theatre” performance to allow students to experience the expressive arts.  

We were fortunate enough to have a visit from Emeritus Professor Judy Atkinson.  Judy really enjoyed visiting the school and working with the community.  Judy shared a lot of knowledge and wisdom with us. 

We had a visit from some year 9 students from Xavier College in Melbourne.  It was great for the students to interact and participate in a range of activities together.  The staff from both sites worked very hard to make this day happen.
