Bake Sale
A HUGE thank you to everyone who supported the bake sale we held on Friday 4 August. We had a wonderful response with families donating lots of beautiful baking. We raised $353.30. All funds raised go towards Chase's Give a little fundraiser.
Sickness doing the rounds
We've had a spate of tummy bugs and respiratory infections doing the rounds. To avoid spreading this across the school, please keep your child at home for 48 hours after a bout of vomiting or diarrhoea.
Is your Year 6 child leaving at the end of this year?
If you are contemplating enrolling your Year 6 child at another school for Year 7 in 2018, could you please complete this form? Although we would be sad to see your child leave the school, we understand that parents will make this decision for a host of reasons and we are keen to understand them. We would also like to get an accurate picture, as early as possible, of our student levels for 2018. This will allow us to advertise free spaces and to staff the school correctly for the next year.
