The Weekly Wrap – Term 1 Week 5 – 2021

What a great turnout we had last Tuesday at Acquaintance Evening. Thank you for making the time to come along with your child/ren and meet their teachers and visit their learning spaces. With COVID still very much present in our daily lives, we feel fortunate to have been able to coordinate and host the evening, albeit with only one adult family member able to visit classrooms at staggered intervals. 

We are nearing the half-way point of Term 1 with much ground covered over the first 4 weeks of school. Please take a few moments to read through this week’s wrap.

Best wishes to all for the week ahead.

Paul, Rob and Nicky
