Dear Parents and Carers,
SRC Three new members were inducted to the Student Representative Council: Imogen, Flynn and Axel. We look forward to their contribution to the student voice in the school – the SRC meet weekly to share ideas that can become projects for us to explore.
Playground This weekend we will finally see evidence that the new senior playground will soon be installed. Thanks to our amazing Mr Bateman – maintenance man extraordinaire – for removing the old playground over the weekend in preparation for the new. On behalf of the school I extend my thanks to the former P&F and the current Community Council for their hard work in recent years fundraising to support this endeavour. The $20,000 donation from these funds is a substantial support toward the full cost of $50,000 for the playground. THANK YOU!
Toilets The school has been informed that tenders are being written for building the toilet block so we hope to soon have news that the project will take shape. I appreciate the patience of the whole community in the waiting time for this project to come to fruition.
Gross motor circuits are set up regularly for students to continue developing their motor skills. Here are some students of all ages enjoying some balancing.
