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. It is emailed to all parents and carers. Families may ask the school to add other family members to the distribution list.

In the event of system failure, a hard copy will be sent home to each family. Newsletters are also available for download in pdf format - see below (some files are quite large).
