Principals Message

Thank you to all the students, staff and parents who have made Miss Aiofe, Miss Jemima, Miss Gemma and myself feel so welcome for the start of Term Three. We have had a smooth and busy start to the term and are looking forward to lots of learning happening across the school.

Congratulations to Miss Christine and her family on the arrival of their baby boy, Yeshua. Mum and bub are doing well and we wish them all the best as they adjust as a family of five.

We have made a few changes to the assembly timetable for this term. Assemblies will now be held three times a term and in Term 3 they will be held in Week 3, 6 and 10. We still have them on a Friday afternoon. This information has been updated on our school calendar.

Our first assembly will have an item by Year 2. We will also have a presentation by the Missing Piece research team, who will also be providing afternoon tea for all the students, staff and parents. Please join us at 1.15pm for our assembly followed by afternoon tea.

Our newsletter will also be published fortnightly. It will be shared with families during Weeks 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10. Please let Miss Jenna in the office know if you are not able to read our newsletter and she will help you to connect.

Thank you to those families who have been fundraising for our Year 6 Camp in Week 9. Miss Jess has organised some exciting activities for the students and I am looking forward to sharing a day with them in Broome. Camp is an exciting experience which allows students to develop independence and experience some time away from home in a safe and supportive environment.

I am looking forward to getting to know everyone over the course of the term.

God Bless.

Miss Melanie
