Welcome to Term 3!

Winter has seen several students and teachers fall victim to colds and flus, and this is a good time for warm soups and stews to keep our health up. We are pleased to announce several new staff members: Ms Lynden Lawton is our new teacher of Italian, and Ms Kathleen Morfiadakis is teaching History and Geography. Ms Bongiwe Tabi has replaced Ms Richardson in Science. On Thursday 25 July at 6pm the school is hosting an information session in the library concerning the new reporting format, one which complies with the Australian Curriculum and Achievement Standards. Any student, parent or carer is welcome to attend and we will endeavour to answer any questions concerning first semester reports. A reminder that Board and P&C meetings are on Monday12 August, from 5.30 for the Board and from 7pm for the P&C.
