Parent Information Evening

Our Stage 2 Parent Information Evening will be held on Tuesday 13th February 2018 from 5:30 – 6:30pm. Please meet us in the library where we will provide some general information about the teaching and learning programs and special events for Stage 2. As this is a general information evening, there won't be an opportunity to discuss individual student matters, however, parents are welcome to make a separate appointment with the class teacher at any time. We look forward to seeing you on the night.


Overnight Camp

The Year 4 overnight camp will be in Term 3, Week 5, Thursday 23rd to Friday 24th August 2018. The approximate cost is $170.  Students will stay overnight at the Morisset Centre where the activities will be challenging, educational and lots of fun!

Most students will be looking forward to this experience. A few students (and parents) may be hesitant. If your child has anxiety when staying somewhere overnight or being away from you, please contact the class teacher as soon as possible so that we can discuss strategies to support your child. We would love to see them there!
