Year 5 Camp – A big thank you to Mrs Hepworth, Mrs Bellette and Mr Webster who along with supporting volunteer parents, organised and led a highly successful camp to Wirraway Homestead. Well done to all students who attended the camp – your behaviour was exemplary. A great experience all round. A few more school camps to go.
