Term 4 is always a busy term as teachers and students wrap up the school year and plan for the new school year. The leadership and staff teams have begun work on plans for 2018. We have started work on class compositions and possible class lists.If you know of families within the school community who are looking to enrol their child with us please ask them to contact Georgie in the school office.
