Congratulations to all the students who participated in the District Athletics carnival last Friday.  The weather held out and a great day was had by all.  We had quite a few successes on the day and have 9 students off to regionals next week. Geraldine will have already been in touch with those families of students who made the standards for moving forward with regional athletics.

Rebuild InformationStage 2

We are very excitedly looking forward to receiving handover of our new buildings this week.  This will give us time to complete the final touches on the building before administration moving in completely towards the end of term.  We will keep the community informed of the timing around transitioning our students to the new space.
