School Notices - 4 November 2019

By John Murrihy | Posted: Monday November 4, 2019

One-third of the term gone already! Athletics seems to be the special thing happening this week....

What's on?


All the best to the students who  are competing at the Northern Zone Athletics on Monday (4 November).

Also the Year 0-2 school athletics will be held on Tuesday morning. Please read the article and send your Y0-2 along with everything they need to compete.

Tummy Bug

This week we have had several cases of students away or presenting with vomiting and/or diarrhoea.

To minimise spread at this time we ask that students stay away from school until they are completely well and for 48 hours after the last episode of vomiting or diarrhoea.

We are doing extra sanitising throughout school and ask that you help us encourage students to regularly and thoroughly wash and dry their hands.

Parents will be contacted immediately and asked to collect students if they present with symptoms.

Lost Property

If you've lost it maybe someone has found it and handed it in. Pink Fluffy is sad!
