Afternoon all,

Short and sweet this week. It has been a huge week behind the scenes, and I am happy to report that our Kindy 2025 interviews are going really well. I have been having some lovely discussions with new families about our community and I am confident that we will continue to go from strength to strength here in the future.

A very important reminder for current families to ENROL YOUR SIBLINGS as we are very close to full for 2024 and it will be similar in 2025. Last year we had a few current families forget so I urge you to get it done early to avoid disappointment.

Finally, we have begun our Snr Winter Sports training this term and I would like to thank the parents who have volunteered to help train our students on Friday afternoons. We have a few interschool games scheduled with Star of the Sea and then a carnival later in the term. Should be a heap of fun.

Enjoy your weekend and we will see you all next week, all ready for our swimming lessons!

WA State Hockey Trials

A big congratulations to Ashton T in 6R who was selected to participate in the trials for School Sport WA intestate hockey team. He did extremely well at the first two trials and made it through to the final trial last weekend. Unfortunately he just missed out on selection to the final team, going to compete in Tasmania but he had an amazing experience and leant many new skills for the upcoming winter season. Great job Ashton!
