Proclaim a joyful sound and let it be heard;
proclaim to the ends of the earth:
The Lord has freed his people, alleluia.
Message from the Principal
I trust all mothers had a wonderful Mother’s Day on Sunday and that you took advantage of the beautiful autumn weather.
From Monday 18th May, we shall recommence classroom based teaching and attendance is compulsory, unless there are medical reasons for not doing so. If your child cannot attend school, please contact the office to discuss alternative learning arrangements. The health and safety of our students and staff continues to be a top priority and children are encouraged throughout the day to regularly wash their hands using soap and water and hand sanitiser.
Thank you for your patience at Kiss and Drive. As a community we always need to place the safety of our students first, so we thank you for your co-operation. Parents are still not permitted on school grounds; therefore the early pickup from 2:50pm will remain.
A reminder that School Fees and Payment Options forms are due. If you are having financial difficulties, please feel free to contact the Finance Officer, Narelle Foster to discuss. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
As we focus on face to face teaching over the remaining six weeks of term, teachers will continue to build relationships with their students and immerse children in deep and engaging learning experiences.
