Bushfire Appeal

We are going green tomorrow on Valentine's Day to support the Bushfire Recovery Appeal through St Vinnies.  This is a student lead action to show our support for those who have suffered in the tragic events over this summer.  Children may wear a touch of green with their uniform tomorrow and bring along a gold coin donation.


Assembly - Tomorrow - 2:30pm

Our regular fortnightly Assembly begins tomorrow with 5/6WR presenting some of the skills and understandings that they have been participating in during the first two weeks of the 2020 school term.  All are most welcome to attend.  We hope to see some of our 5/6WR families at Assembly.

Last Chance to be included on Class Contact Lists

Parents who attended our information sharing sessions or the Foundation Information Night on Tuesday  were asked if they wanted to be part of class contact list and were asked to verify their contact details.  If you would like to be included on your child's class contact list and you have not already verified your details please  email with your name, child's name, child's class, your mobile number and your email address by Friday 15 February.  Once the lists are finalised on Monday 18 February you will received the list for your child's class.  There will no changes to contact lists once they are distributed to families on Monday 18 February.
