The Weekly Wrap

Thank you to all families who were able to attend our Acquaintance Evening last Tuesday (and Monday for the Year 1s). We hope you found the evening a valuable one and enjoyed the opportunity to have your child / children share in their learning routines as well as meeting their teachers. 

We are nearing the midpoint of Term 1 with much ground covered over the first 4 weeks of school.

Thanks for taking the time to read through this week’s wrap.

Best wishes to all for the week ahead.

Paul, Rob and Nicky
