School Working Bee Sunday 11th October

Attention: All Hands on Deck!
We are having a school working bee.
SUNDAY 11TH OCTOBER 2015 the day before school starts back.
9am till 12 noon. Sausage sizzle and refreshments on completion.

Lets get the school spick and span for Ag Day. Jobs include water blasting, weeding, helping establish the Play Group shed, general pruning and gardening, some repair work and anything else that you can see needs attention.

Our Board does not employ a caretaker, choosing instead to direct funds to learning resources for our students. We rely on a couple of working bees each year to keep things ship shape. Children are welcome to come along and help.


Thanks :)

Newspaper Wanted

We are holding a big technology day this Thursday and we are in desperate need of lots of newspaper. If you have any at home that you don’t need could you please bring them to school. Many thanks

Thank You

Thank you to everyone who braved the weather and came to our sports prize giving this morning.
Well done to all of our students who participated in winter sports this year and a big well done to all of our trophy winners. Thank you to Maria and Jason for organising another very successful event.
A HUGE thank you to all of our wonderful coaches Sara, Michelle, Craig, Andrew, Matt, David, Anna, Jason, Christina and Catherine. You are all amazing coaches and we are incredibly lucky to have had you coach our children.
Last but not least, thank you very much to all the mums, dads, nans and pops, aunties and uncles, who got up every Saturday morning to support the children and their coaches.
We look forward to doing it all again next year :)
