Dear Parents and Carers,

Tent Day Today

Thanks to those of you who sent in your tents for the children to assemble.  We decided to assist the older students in putting up one large tent and the younger ones to set up one small tent.  We chose from those who were sent in.  It was very successful with the younger students coming in first on their assembly.  We will have one week back at school before our camp out at Bournda on Friday, October 14.  We will practice setting up tents on Thursday the 13th as well.

Thanks to all who participated in our Parent Teacher Conferences last week.  It was a pleasure to meet with you and to discuss the progress of your child.
