Term 3 - Week 9 - 2022

Principal News

Well we are almost at the end of term 3, and what a busy and productive term it has been.  The students have all worked extremely hard and the learning is evident in the quality of their work, so well done to all.


Today is R U OK? Day and we invited students to wear something yellow in recognition of the day. I am pleased to say that once again, our students got behind this event and the schoolyard was awash with yellow. Teachers and students have had discussions today about the importance of asking each other, R U OK?, and the impact this can have on helping each other.

Enjoy your weekend, and just a reminder that we will have an early dismissal next Friday (16th September) at 2:30pm as it is the last day of the school term.
