From Steve....

Greetings everyone,
Apologies for breaking into your holidays but I thought it might be a good idea to give you some reminders and clear up any confusion that may be out there.
  • Students start back to school on Tuesday 7th February
  • Kinder - normal classroom with Steph and Mel
  • Prep - in the bottom part of the Green Cottage with Michelle and John
  • 1/2 - in the Middle Cottage with Hana/Bernadette and Jane
  • 3/4 - normal classroom with Lee and Claire
  • 5/6 - normal classroom with Tom and Susanne
  • Term 1 is a hats term for any outside play
  • A reminder about the no nuts policy
  • Click on the link to view a new document which outlines the preferred communication threads and which was endorsed by Committee at the end of last year
  • Also included is an invitation from the Social Committee for you all to attend a welcome to school afternoon tea on the first Tuesday back.  It would be especially great if all those who are listed as being host families could make contact with their new family, invite them to attend and introduce them to everyone.
As a staff we’re all pumped for a truly wonderful year and we hope you are too. See you Tuesday!

Will be added next week!


Pre Kinder
Monday 20th February
The children start at 9am and finish at 12 noon. Just a reminder that we operate the Pre Kinder as a drop off and pick up so that parents and children can experience a short time of separation and for the children to develop their emotional resilience.
