Dear Parents and Carers

We hope you have enjoyed a wonderful break and feel refreshed and ready for the start of school next week.

We're providing some information before school begins to help you prepare and be ready for the week ahead.

Save the date for the P&F Family Picnic on Friday 21 February to welcome our community back to school.

Enjoy the weekend and we look forward to seeing you on Monday.

God bless.

We look forward to seeing you on Monday. For the first day, classrooms will open at 8.15am and classes commence at 8.50am. From Tuesday onwards, classrooms will open at 8.30am.

Bring in all booklist items on the first day

Please bring in all your booklist items on the first day. There is no need to cover books as teachers will add labels; the books will be sent home at a later date for covering.

Purchase uniform items

Uniform is purchased from Nell Gray Uniform Concepts, either instore or online.

We are aware of the stock issues with sports uniform and Mr McMahon is meeting with Nell Gray today. We understand this stems from delays in receiving goods from China.

If you don't have sports uniform, we recommend a polo shirt in your faction colour from K-mart, Big W and other stores at a very reasonable price.
