From the Principal

Our term 2 value is:
Being honest is being open, trustworthy and truthful.

Dear parents

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support this term and wish you well for the July school holidays.  If you are able to take some time off to spend with your children, I hope that you can enjoy some special time together.  

We would like you to go through your child’s report and together start preparing for the teacher/parent/student conference on Wednesday 5 August.  This will be an important time as you formulate some learning goals for the remainder of the year.  We hope that you have found the assessment information, that teachers provided in the report, helpful.

We hope that the holidays will provide the time needed for your children to recover if they have had colds or flu and that they will all come back to school on 20 July ready for a productive term.

Thank you again for your support for your children and for our school.

Kind regards
Marilyn Gwilliam
