News from the Principal
Welcome back to our new school term. I hope everyone has had a restful break and enjoyed their Easter celebrations with family and friends.
An Easter Message
Easter gives hope for tomorrow,
As after the winter comes Spring.
Our hearts can be filled with gladness
As hearts rejoice and sing
Thank you to all children and families for their wonderful participation in our Easter Liturgy. The children were very respectful and I thank Libby McKew for all the work she put into it.
The Easter Bonnet Parade was amazing and we thank all children for their wonderful efforts. Congratulations to our 2022 winners - Jack, Elle, Olivia, Eva, Ruby, Logan, Yan and Ollie.
The Hot Cross Bun drive was a huge success, with the Parents and Friends raising $244.00 in commission.
We are incredibly grateful to the families for their generosity in regard to Project Compassion and our Easter Egg raffle. Over $900 was raised and it will be donated to displaced families in Ukraine.
