The Weekly Wrap

Thank you for taking the time to read through this week’s weekly wrap and to keep up to date with school happenings. Students and staff continue to participate in a range of activities and events in addition to their regular learning programs. 

A big week ahead with Book Week beginning – leading up to Dress Up day on Friday. Students have already commenced and are enjoying the Footsteps Dance program which is scheduled on Mondays.

Best wishes to all for the week ahead.

Kind regards – Paul, Rob and Nicky.

Congratulations, Well Done and Thanks

  • To the students, staff and families who participated in our school’s second Korean Homestay program over the last three weeks. Special mention to Senior Leader, Nicky Taylor, for her excellent coordination of the whole homestay program, which again proved to be a highly successful and rewarding experience for all involved. We look forward to continuing the program in 2020.

  • To all students in Reception to Year 4 who proudly shared their learning to their peers, families and friends at last week’s team assemblies.

  • Excursions / Camps Update – As per the recent post  we have recently reviewed our excursions and camps consent forms to align with departmental procedures and are unable to continue offering the signing facility through the Qkr! App for consent. However, payment can still easily be made through the Qkr! App. Parents/Caregivers will be required to complete and sign the yellow consent form after having carefully read the information.  Forms are then to be returned to the school. Any consent forms that have been submitted via Qkr! prior to Monday 29th July, 2019 will still be accepted. Students will not be able to attend any excursions/camps where a yellow consent form has not been returned to the school.
