Welcome back to all our students and families for a big Term 4!
I trust you all had a wonderful break and you are ready for lots of learning.
I have loved seeing everybody back at school and look forward to seeing you all progress.
Well done to our amazing Kindy students for completimg their very first carnival! A huge thank you to Mr Bird and Mr Higgs for organising and carrying out such a successful event. No doubt our Kindy kids will be buzzying from it over the weekend. Thank you to our year 6 leaders who helped out during the event, it’s always nice to see the dynamic between our upper and lower years as they work towards a common goal.
Enjoy the below photos captured from the event.
