Week 5 – Term 3 2023

Dear parents and carers,


Exam Preparation

The countdown is on towards National Exams and our Year 10 and Year 8 students have their regular Saturday morning exam prep at STM campus again this Saturday morning. We acknowledge the work that both students and teachers are putting in to prepare for the exams.


Swimming Carnivals


On Thursday of week 8, there will a  junior mini-swimming carnival held during the school day and a carnival for years 3-10 commencing in the late afternoon. Further information about both swimming carnivals will be communicated to parents next week.




Attendance at school is very important. Children need to be at school on time every day to succeed in their learning. We have seen some unnecessary absenteeism and lateness, particularly in the high school. If a child is absent, parents / carers need to email the class teacher or send a note on return to the school.


Independence Day 


This year the school will celebrate Independence Day on the last day of school for term 3 – September 14. There will be some special activities to celebrate the day.  Please see the program below.


Term 3 Calendar

If you have any concerns or would like further information on any of the topics in this newsletter, please do not hesitate to make contact with any questions.
