Message from Geordie

Good afternoon everyone,

After a fantastic week of fun, sunshine and learning, I hope you all have the opportunity to relax over the weekend! A huge congratulations to our Year 3’s for entertaining us this morning – it was a lot of fun, high energy, great music and awesome dance moves!

Can I also say a huge thanks to all the families who contributed to the Climate Survey. We had over 80 families participate which will help us to plan and make decisions in the future.

Congratulations to the Hall family who won the family dinner voucher.

Have a great weekend

Geordie Thuijs
