Welcome Back!

Simon Clarke —

The holidays are a special time for families and we hope that you all had a chance to spend time with friends and family.

We have had an excellent start to the year and everyone is coping well with the changes that we have made to accommodate the rebuild.   We will continue to refine bell times and flow around the school as we understand more about how our students are responding to the changes.

As part of our upcoming Meet the Teacher evening, we want to share the plans for the school, the timeline and most importantly how these areas will function for your child.  We can't talk about that without talking about Project Based Learning so if you were wondering what this PBL is all about, then we hope we can clarify anything with you on the 17th of February.  We will be sending more information about this next week.

Summer sports registration is now closed but we have lots of other activities that your child might like to try.

Kind regards

Simon Clarke
