Junior Playground

On Saturday 18th March we are having some trees trimmed to make way for the new junior playground.  If you intend to visit the grounds on this day please make sure all children are supervised and stay well away from these area for safety reasons.  On Sunday 19th March we are holding a working bee  to clear this area, split logs and remove some large rocks, all volunteers are welcome.  Please bring your tools and chainsaws if you have them.  If you would like to purchase firewood for $100, would like some fill, mulch or some large rocks for the garden bring along your trailer, first in first served basis and available from 11am.  This is part of the playground fundraiser.

Contact Suzanne at the office if you are able to attend.

Safety after school

We would like to remind families that the school is not a supervised play space outside of school hours. We are very happy for you to bring your children here to play and enjoy the facilities, but please know that we are not supervising them if they are sent without an adult.

If you require after-school support for your children, there is a programme that runs in the school hall.  Please contact Steven ( 0212987926 )  for more information about this.

Polyfest

For the Yr 3-6 students who have been selected to visit the PolyFest festival later this month, we need the return slips back please.
We also need a lot more parent volunteers to join us and drive on the day. Please let the office know if you can help out please.
