Just a reminder, as per the school calendar, the school will be closed on Monday, 6th May for the Public Holiday. The building is closed to staff and pupils.
For health and safety reasons, we would like to advise parents and carers that it is essential that pupils are dropped off at the front of the school at the designated “Drop Off Zone”. It is not safe to drop off pupils at the back gates of the school.
Thank you for help with this matter.
Mr D. Trowell
*Please note that the session due to be held on the Monday, 12th November has been re-scheduled for Monday, 19th November.

We are also looking for new committee members this session to enable us to run a full program this year. Please get in touch if you are able to help.
