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.
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.
