Good afternoon parents and guardians,

We are now on the homeward stretch towards the end of Term 1 and the students are working hard on assessments before the last day of classes next Wednesday.

Our new administration building had two pours of concrete this week, with another to follow next Tuesday.  The car park will need to be closed for the morning and may reopen for the afternoon pick up time.  Thank you to all families for using the alternative car parking area in the paddock.  Please keep an eye out for our staff directing traffic on Tuesday next week.

The first wall is going up!

Kind regards,

Mark Stevens

Head of Primary
