Have a wonderful school break and Happy Easter, and we look forward to seeing you on Monday 29th April ready for Term 2 start.
The school office will be open for enrolment enquiries on Friday 26th April from 9.30am-12.00noon.
During the holidays there will be a construction/repair company working on the first stage of the urgent (and long awaited) repair of our junior school block roof (Areas 1-12). Due to safety requirements the company have instructed us that safety fencing must be erected around the perimeter of the junior block, hall driveway, and left hand side of the staff carpark. This site restriction also includes the school hall driveway as well as half of the staff car park. There will be no pedestrian access between the junior block and school admin block. There will be NO ENTRY by any non- authorised personnel to the construction site.
The school holiday programme run by Kelly Club, church group, and parents have access to the school hall from the Roanoke Way street entry.
The school playgrounds, fields and bike track will be open for your family’s enjoyment.
