SCHOOL NEWS in Brief…..
16th June 2017
From the Principal’s desk
Sport For All Day is tomorrow, Friday June 16th. All children should come to school tomorrow dressed for sport and physical activities and perhaps bring some extra drinks with them.
We will spend the whole day engaging in sporting activities and the emphasis is on providing children with the opportunity to experience a wide variety of games and sports. Depending on the weather, sun hats and sunscreen may also be a good idea.
Thank you to the Parents’ Association and all the parents who supported the running of our Annual Sports Day last Sunday! It was a great success and we even managed to avoid most of the rain! Thank you to Michelle O’ Sullivan (Lina – R5 and Ben’s – R1 mum) who managed to capture some great moments of the day.

If you want to contact Michelle directly for the prints you can email firstname.lastname@example.org
Please check for lost property at the gate in the morning. All items left at the weekend will be donated to charity.
