Permission notes for swimming have been sent out.  Please return these as soon as possible so that forward planning for learning can be finalised.

Camp Years 3-6

We received enough camp permission notices in the given time frame and as such will be able to move forward on planning for camp.  More information to follow.

School Council

We are looking for volunteers to become a part of our school council.  If you would like more information, are excited to become an active member of our school community and can spare an hour or two a month to attend meetings please speak to Kris or myself.

Prep Information for 2018

We have held our very successful Prep Information Sessions for pre-enrolment for 2018.  If you did not have the opportunity to attend or know someone who is still looking to enrol please direct them to the office to arrange a School Tour or collect enrolment forms.  Enrolments received before September mean that your child can be guaranteed a place for 2018.  It will also place you on the mailing list for further information as soon as it becomes available.

As always, if you have any concerns or celebrations you wish to share please come and see myself or Kris any time.
