Dear Parents and Students

ONLY 3 MORE DAYS UNTIL GALA!!!!!

ONLY 3 more days to gala. It is very exciting and we hope you can all join us for this fantastic community occasion. Our PFA and class reps have gone beyond the call of duty to make this an enjoyable day for all. Final mufti day is TOMORROW. 

 

2018 SCHOOL TRYATHLON
Next Tuesday - 20 March, all our children will be having fun running, cycling and swimming in our very own school tryathlon. The organisation for the day can be found on this link. Within each time bracket we will start with the youngest age group, and boys will race before girls. Parents are very welcome to join us and support your child. We ask respectfully, that you stay off the course and let the children go for it. The aim is that everyone has a go and if some are finding parts hard there will be lots of staff and students to help and encourage.

PARENTS PLEASE NOTE : If you want to take your child home from the triathlon a little earlier, please let the class teacher know. They are responsible for knowing where their children are.

PAID UNION MEETING WEDNESDAY 21 MARCH
Please read details here.

WATER SLIDES
In line with all our exciting WATER ACTIVITIES over the last few weeks, next week is going to be water slide week. This will be the only slip and slide chance before Term 4. Year 5 and 6 have their turn on Tuesday, Year 3 and 4 will have their turn on Wednesday and Year 1 and 2 will slide on Thursday.

LINC-ED
Hopefully you are now connected to linc-ed and you have received a post from your child. More entries will be posted as time progresses and as we become more confident with using this site. If you are having problems accessing this site, please let your class teacher know. View log in and app details here.

Please note, school is closed on April 3 for Easter Tuesday. This is customary for schools.

Friday 23 March is our next schoolwide assembly at 2.30pm in the hall.
