Mid-Term 4 Update
The weather is finally warming up – please ensure you bring your water bottle to school each day!
We have lots of things to do before the end of the school year – please ensure your check the newsletter and your class dojo regularly to keep up-to-date!
Swimming is about to start for our Preps - please ensure you have returned your permission form. A good idea is for our students to practice changing in and out of their bathers at home to help learn to get ready - and learn how to roll up wet bathers in your towel before putting them in your plastic bag. Please check the notes sent home to check what time your child is swimming if you wish to visit during your child's lesson.
