A group of Year 3 students took the initiative of making and selling goodies to their peers last week, raising funds for Cancer Council. It is inspiring to see our young students wanting to make a difference and reaching out to help those in need. Another example of our core value of Service in action!

Your child will also bring home a special little surprise to give you for Father’s Day.

Thank you for your flexibility and understanding during this time.

Warm regards

Your Early Childhood Team

If your child is interested in participating in Little Athletics outside of school, please visit the WA Little Athletics link https://walittleathletics.com.au/ to find your local club. The WA Little Athletics season usually runs from October until March.



Please note that students are now permitted to use the playground equipment after school, providing there is an adult supervising them at all times. Staff members are NOT available for after school supervision. Please be vigilant when supervising your child/ren. We thank you for your support in this matter.
