Easter Hat Parade

Students need to make their Easter Hats at home to wear on Thursday the 7th of April. They can be as simple or decorative as you like. 


Wii Gaay Residential School

Last Monday Ayden and I travelled to Dubbo for the week to attend the Residential Wii Gaay School. We had the privilege of camping at the zoo for a night and going on a night tour around the zoo. 

On Tuesday we travelled back to Dubbo for the students to start their learning rotations of numeracy, literacy and IT.

Ayden and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of the camp.

Congratulations on another successful year of Art Competition entries. This year we received just over 60 entries which raise a total of $60 for Project Compassion. This week, students will have the opportunity to view the artworks and winners for each stage will be announced at Friday's assembly. On Thursday, 7th April, parents and carers are invited to tour the Art Gallery (AKA the Library) where all of our entries, including our winning artworks, will be displayed. The Art Gallery will open on conclusion of the Easter hat parade and raffle.  We look forward to seeing you there!
