End of Term 3

A big thank-you to everyone in the school community who has helped to make term three a success.  We have packed in many different activities including the Arts and Cultural Extravaganza, Science Fair, Speech Competition, South Eastern Zone sports Teams, as well as the regular classroom learning.  

Term Four begins on Monday 16th October.  If you are going to camp, please remember to organise the gear you will need over the holidays as there is only one week back at school before you head off on this adventure.

We look forward to seeing you all back at the start of next term.
