COVID-19 school information
As per the Premier’s message to us today (Thursday 27/03) and a letter you have been sent by Miss Leesa Jeffcoat, our Diocesan Director, tomorrow – Friday, 27th March will be the last day of learning for the term.
Next week is deemed a Pupil Free Week in order for our teachers to make preparations for the ongoing education of Children from Home, in Term 2. The only children who will be able to attend school next week will be those whose parents are needed to attend their own place of work (these are deemed ESSENTIAL WORKERS). These children will be supervised only as there will be no regular learning or activities provided. Parents, who need supervision for their children, are asked to provide some activities for children to do whilst at school.

Message from the principal
I want to take this opportunity to express my thanks to you for your support this term. For the most part, it has been a great start to the year, unfortunately, these last couple of weeks has left me, and I’m guessing most people, a little shell shocked.
Going forward is a bit of an unknown. However, we will do everything we can to keep you as informed as possible.
I wish you and your family a holy, safe and healthy Easter break. Stay positive, stay well and may God bless all of you.
