Winter has arrived! The children have been stuck inside so it has been great to see some sun today. This is a full newsletter with lots of info please take the time to read it.
Please remember Tuesday the 26th, this coming Tuesday, is an early finish due to all teachers attending a Paid Union Meeting please pick children up at 12:30. Bruce has explained more about this in his article 'From the principal's desk'.
The weather hasn't been flash and unfortunately caused cancellations for yr 5-8 sport for a few weeks now. When sport is organised they always allow extra weeks at the end of the season so that if cancellations occur they extend the season and hopefully still fit in the same number of winter sport days. Hopefully this will work again this year. If there is to be any reimbursement for bus costs this can't be done until the end of the winter sport season.
Please remember to keep an eye on the calendar either on the school website or the school app.
