School Newsletter

The school newsletter is an information service for parents and caregivers. We encourage you to read relevant sections (for example, your child's Room update) together with your child.

A hard copy is sent home to each family. Newsletters are also available for download in pdf format - see below (some files are quite large).

Note that in 2018 we are trialling a new system. The published newsletters will only include content from the School's management team and items of interest pertaining to the general community.
