Thank you to the P&F and volunteers for organising an amazing Fathers Day breakfast, stall and raffale .

It was great to see so many people attend this event and we wish all Fathers and Grandfathers a great day on Sunday.

Your wonderful support is very much appreciated

Musica Viva

On Monday 4th September the children will participate in the Musica Viva concert Rhythm Works performance. Preparation for this performance has taken place during music lessons this term. All children will be looking forward to this special musical event. 

Building Update

The final details to prepare the demountable for classes will be carried out over the weekend. An individual class will be relocated to this demountable, in the top playground, and will be there for approximately two weeks while work is carried out in their classroom. For some classes this work will be carried out in the school holidays. All classrooms will receive new carpet, lights and  painted ceilings, while others will also have new ceilings and pinboard walls.

2O will be the first class to occupy the demountable and will commence their time from Monday 4th September. 2S will then be relocated after 2O return. Parents collecting their children after school from 2O will need to go to the top playground for the next two weeks or until further notice.
