Welcome to Week 7

Good morning parents,

Welcome to Week 7, it is shaping up to be a busy one!

The Little Mermaid Musical - Rehearsals are going well and the kids are feeling really comfortable. It has been great to see them getting the chance to try their costumes on and practice with the microphones.

There is a few colds, sore throats and coughs going around at the moment so if your child is unwell please keep them home for a day or two to help them to be at their best for next week!

Father's Day Breakfast - Is on this Friday morning, 1st September. Please make sure that you have RSVP'd . They are still calling for helpers if you can spare the time.

Week 6 Update

Good afternoon parents,

Welcome back to Week 6, it was lovely to get a little bit of sunshine yesterday and this morning!

School Photos - these are on this Thursday (24/8/17) and Friday (25/8/17). A schedule will be finalised and released tomorrow advising of photo times. There will be leadership and sport captain photos on these days as well

Please note students are expected to wear their full winter uniform (including their jumper) on both Thursday and Friday and to make sure they are neatly groomed for each day. 

Can I ask that you please pay particular attention to getting hair cuts as needed and that shoes get an extra polish this week.

General Dress Standard - Just a gentle reminder that students should be wearing predominantly white sneakers on our sports days as per our current uniform policy. 

Coloured sneakers and skate shoes are not to be worn. 

If there is an issue with any part of your child's uniform please write a note explaining the issue with the unders…

Request for Help - St Vincent de Paul Seniors Week Event

Good afternoon parents,
I have had a request for some assistance from Sheila Shannon who is the President of our local St Vincent de Paul branch. 
She is wondering if it would be possible if there may be some students willing to assist with the "Bingo and Afternoon" fundraising event she is hoping to hold on Saturday, 4th November?

Mrs Shannon has booked the old Dunsborough Hall for the event, and is hoping that some of the students and/or parents may be willing or able to help in some way such as donating any prizes or helping to bake or serve food.
If you or your child is able to help, please get in touch with Sheila directly on and let her know how you are able to help support this event.
Thank you in advance,
