Message From Miss Melanie

Thank you to Miss Imogen and her fabulous team (Vida, Phoebe, Leah and Mel) for a great Colour Explosion Fun Run on Friday. The students had a fantastic day and we have raised lots of money towards our Senior Playground upgrade - the final amount will be published at a later date. Don't forget to register what prize you would like, if you raised $10 or more. Thank you also to Winun Ngari for cooking our lunch, DAHS, World Vision, Tony Garlett for being slimed, Police WA, St John Ambulance, and Prue and Johnno for donating our lunch.

Our sports carnival is to be held on Thursday 17th August. Lunch will be provided on the day for all the students. Families are encouraged to come along and cheer on the day. If you would like to volunteer to help on the day, please contact Mr Clinton so that he is able to give you a job.

We are looking for an ATA for Term 4, the position is 4 days per week. If you are interested in applying for this position please send an application to admin@hrsderby.wa.edu.au.

Please note that we have a Pupil Free Day this Friday 11th August.

Looking forward to a great Term 3.

God Bless.

Miss Melanie
