From the Principal

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome to Term 4 - we look forward to the children returning tomorrow, Tuesday 11 October.

Last term ended with a big splash of colour at the Colour Fun Run. A big thanks to our P&F and parent helpers for all the hard work that went into this fun + fundraiser. It was a great community event.

This is a busy week, with school photos and swimming trials. Please take note of the schedules and logistics below.

God Bless,

Allen McMahon
