Maitland Area School

Maitland | Yorke Peninsula | South Australia

Wow those holidays went quick! Now we have a busy Term One jam packed with sporting opportunities for all our students at Central Yorke School. 

House Captains

Our first item on our calendar is nominating and selecting of House Captains. Students will be given the information during the Homegroup double on the first day of school. 

During this time teachers will outline the role and expectations of House Captains.  We will be asking all students in Year 5/6  to nominate a boy and a girl who they think will suit the role (students can vote for themselves) these names are then put on the board and students choose whether to decline or accept the nomination.  

This allows students who may be too shy to nominate themselves to be nominated by a peer and take on the nomination if they wish.  Students who wish to accept the nomination will then take a Nomination form which they will then use to fill out a short speech which will be delivered in front of their house group the following Monday the 6th of February (Week 2) during elections. 

Years 4/5/6 will vote for the Primary House Captain and Years 8/9/10/11/12 will vote for the Secondary House Captain once all nominees have completed their speeches. 

Students who are successful in winning the role of House Captain will then be recognised at the Leaders Induction which will be held on Tuesday the 14th of February (Week 3).


Following this we will have R-8 Swimming from the 15th of February until the 21st of February (Week 3/4)

The Year 9/10 Aquatics camp will follow this on the 20th and 21st of February in Pt Vincent (Week 4). 

The Year 11/12 SACE Aquatics Camp will then follow this on the 27th to the 1st of March (Week 5). 

Our favourite SPLASH Carnival will be on Friday the 3rd of March (Week 5) and we are hoping for a warm day of weather and fierce competition!

CYS Sports day

THE BIG ONE – The Central Yorke School Sports Day will be held on Thursday the 16th of March (Week 7) so call those special family members and let them know to put it in their diary and lock in a day trip! 

AND….to my amazing parent helpers I’ll be calling on you for this day soon so please keep the date in mind!  Parents you can also add to your sports day excitement the retirement of the Parent/Teacher/Student wheel and ball/relay races. We will now have both a Parent Vs Student Vs Teacher Corner Spry and Tug of war.   Start thinking of your teams because the Teachers are feeling very competitive this year! 

SYP Primary Sports

SYP Primary Sports Day will then follow this on Thursday the 23rd of March (Week 8) venue to be advised. 

Secondary Sports Day

Secondary Sports Day to be held at Moonta Area School will then be on Wednesday the 29th of March (Week 9) 


To conclude what will be a VERY busy term we will then have students selected from the Secondary Sports Day to attend Mile End Athletics representing the Yorke Peninsula Team on the 10th of April (Week 11)

Other sporting events

As we are also endeavouring to keep parents as informed as possible with dates we have also included a small table of other events which are scheduled in for the rest of the year.  

These dates are very much subject to change however if they do change they are usually around the date we had initially agreed upon.  Watch the school newsletter calendar closely as well as the bottom of your child’s school bag for notes as dates approach, also don’t hesitate to contact me at the school to confirm information any time. 

We hope you and your child find this information useful as we look forward to our students representing Central Yorke School in the near future!
