Little Athletics is a fantastic way to keep fit and builds the foundation skills of running, jumping and throwing, which are all transferable to other sports. If your child is interested in participating in Little Athletics outside of school, Joondalup Little Athletics Centre is a fantastic local club –  http://www.jlac.org.au The WA Little Athletics season usually runs from October until March.

Night on the Green

Dear Parents

It is with great excitement that we invite our school community to the inaugural “Night on The Green” on Saturday 3 December from 4:30pm to 7:30pm. This parent led event is a fantastic opportunity for our community to come together and celebrate the end of our academic year and for our families to spend time together before we break up for the school holidays. Food trucks, silent disco, Christmas Market, animal farm, Santa’s Grotto, music,…. are some of the many activities that will be on offer on the night.

If any parents have a small business and would like to be involved, please contact Bronwyn (bronwyn.doak@yahoo.com) or Karen (hinder@internode.on.net ).

We are also looking for several volunteers to give a couple of hours of their time to help on the day. Karen and Bronwyn would also love to hear from you.

This is a wonderful event and we look forward to celebrating together with our families in December!
