What a wonderful start to the year we have had with our school photos on day one, 'Welcome Back BBQ' last Thursday and first Assembly of the year to announce the SRC and Sports Captains. Apologies for the brief Assembly, it was lovely to see all of the students present and share with the community our new SRC Reps and School Sports Captains. Congratulations again to Naoimh, Lincoln and Eva our 2020 SRC representatives and to Kyeasha, Kade, Courtney and Lewis our Sports Captains. I am looking forward to working with our leaders of 2020 and know great things are already in the pipeline!

Just a reminder that our teachers are on duty from 8.30am - 3.15pm each day. Our school day begins when the bell rings at 8.55am. Classrooms will be open from 8.45am to 2.45pm each day.
We encourage parents to visit the classrooms in the morning and after school. Please note, for the safety of everyone, students will need to be dropped off or collected using the drop off area near the library, parking and walking your child into the school or collecting them from the fire hydrant. Students are not to enter the carpark alone. For parents visiting classrooms, it is encouraged that families use the children’s crossing and new Franklin Street entrance. Your support in the safety of all of our students is very much appreciated.
It is exciting to report that our new look website was launched today! Follow the link or add it to your shortcuts:
As you will notice we have engaged Schoolzine to develop a new look website, school app and eNewsletter for seamless communication between school and home.
If you would like to subscribe a relative, friend or another family member to our distribution list please let us know.
For those families who couldn't make the 'Welcome Back BBQ' there was an opt out option for the hard copy of the fortnightly newlsetter. If you would like to ONLY receive the eNewsletter online please email or call the office.
