Dinner Brief
Screen Shot 2017 03 20 at 2.19.23 PM

Today is Harmony Day and the International Dinner.

We have a fantastic program of events.

Fingers crossed the rain and storms stay away. However, if we have thunder storms the event will need to be cancelled as the book fair is being held in the gym.

Stay tuned for a Compass alert to confirm weather conditions.

Safety Week & Interschool Sports


Articles Written by Arush, Year 6

Interschool Sports - Year 6

2017 has been a very exhausting year for Year 6 so far and this is not changing. In term two, everyone in Year Six has to participate in either of these sports: Netball, Footy or T-Ball. I mean everyone here would choose T-Ball right. Trust me Netball and Footy don't stand a chance against T-Ball . Anyway back to topic. Interschool Sports is helpful for everyone as it helps them work and understand others, keeps them fit and most importantly, everyone makes new friends. So Year 6 parents who are reading this, it is essential that you talk to your son/daughter about what sport they would like to play and excel in.

Safety Week

As most of you would know last week was Safety Week. Students participated in all kinds of activities and now they know a lot more about safety than before. Everyone learnt about personal space and safety at school. We were assigned to either research on Asthma, Allergies, Diabetes or Epilepsy. It was all great fun!
