The Weekly Wrap – Term 3 Week 7 – 2021

Each year, Book Week comes alive on Friday Dress Up Day – this year was no exception. Congratulations to everyone on their fabulous costumes and thank you to all our families for supporting our much loved tradition. Well done to Louise, Kiara, Olivia, Jay and Ruby for coordinating and hosting our school assembly – fantastic job! Photos shared on our Facebook Page.

The Book Fair continues until Tuesday 31st of August. Purchasing of books can take place from 8:30 – 9:30am or 3:00 – 4:00pm. For more information, please check in with this previous post.

Looks like a great week to get outside and enjoy the sunny weather.

Kind regards – Paul, Rob and Nicky.

Staffing Update

A special welcome to Mrs Olivia Dean, who formally joins us on Monday, teaching Year 5s – taking over teaching duties from Miss Amy Bennett who finished with us last Friday. Olivia is already well known to many students across the various year levels and is looking forward to teaching Year 5s for the remainder of the school year. 

We thank Amy for her excellent work and commitment in teaching her Year 5 class this year. We extend our best wishes to Amy and her partner George, who are expecting their first child in October.
