BACK TO SCHOOL IN 2019
School will resume next year on Tuesday, 29 January, following the Australia Day public holiday on Monday. Teaching staff will resume the week before and will be engaged in professional learning activities. The office will be attended. Mrs Lee will be available to purchase uniforms. See details below.
In closing, I would like to wish everyone a happy and holy Christmas. May God keep you and your families safe during the vacation period and I look forward to working with you all again for an exciting 2019 school year. May you travel peacefully through the holidays.
I would like to ask parents to please consider pre-ordering uniforms to ensure I have enough stock for everyone. There is generally a three month turn around on stock orders. Your help with this matter would be greatly appreciated. Orders may be collected on Wednesday 23rd and Thursday 24th January 2019. I will have the library open for uniform sales these days from 8.30am to 4pm.
The sports polos are now ordered and should arrive sometime in late February. Payment of $30 for Sports shirts will be the end of Week 3, Term 1, 2019. Just a friendly reminder that our prescribed school socks are navy blue, ‘fold down to the ankle’ socks and not anklets or crew socks. We have packs of 3 for $11.00 in sizes 9-12, 13-3, 2-8 and 7-11. For all your uniforms needs please feel free to contact me every Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8.30am to 9.00am or outside of these times by appointment.
