Friendly Reminders 

Harmony Week – Thursday 18 March

The Canteen is selling Harmony Day donuts – please order via Qkr! Details here.

Last Day To Pay – Tuesday 16th March By 12:00 Midday. Late Orders Will Not Be Accepted

2021 Student-led Conferences

In Weeks 9 and 10 (22nd March – 1st April), our annual student-led  conferences begin which serve as a valuable opportunity for students, with teacher support, to share their learning achievements with parents and caregivers. Each student has a positive story to tell about their learning this year, giving them an opportunity to self-evaluate and self-reflect on their learning, with the view to setting future learning goals, whilst also giving parents an opportunity to ask questions about their child’s learning.

Online bookings must be finalised before Sunday 21st of March at 6.00pm. Details in last week’s post.

Reception – Yr. 5 Swimming Update / COVID Pool Information

Colour Explosion Fun Run

Thank you so much for supporting our school, especially through fundraising. We are looking forward to hosting our second Colour Explosion School Fun Run. Funds raised will go towards extra outdoor seating and playground markings as chosen by students in Term 4 last year. Full details here.

Year 7 to High School Parent Update

In 2021, families of both Year 6 and Year 7 students will be applying to start Secondary School in 2022.  

Online Registration Forms for families will be received via email in Week 1 of Term 2 so please keep an eye out for this.
