News Letter September to December 2017

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We wish to thank all the Parents/Guardians for all their support over the previous school year in all the events and activities that have been taking place.  We especially want to thank our wonderful PTA who have gone above and beyond getting the word out about events and organising them also. We have some very exciting things happening from now to the end of December so please see below for all the upcoming events and activities, and we hope to see you all there.

A reminder to Parents/Guardians that if your child is late or leaving early from school there is a sign in and out policy in place and we ask that all Parents/Guardians please remember to use the book provided.

In an effort to keep Parents/Guardians involved we are continuously updating our webpage and facebook with everything that is taking place within the school and welcome any feedback.

Now that we have settled back into the school term it’s time for the first Parents association meeting.

This will be held on Wednesday 3rd Oct @7pm. Meetings of the committee will be held on the first Wednesday of every month for the school year (except for school holidays). Meetings are a positive coming together of parents so please come along. The PA can be contacted on any time.
