Our SAUSAGE SIZZLE is on every Friday. Sausages, bread and sauce cost $1. Orders will be taken outside the Office and must be in by 8.20am. A huge thank you to the great support team we have to cook and give out the sausages.
SCHOOL UNIFORM It has come to our attention that a number of children have not been consistent in wearing their school uniform. Our uniform consists of a polo shirt and either navy blue cargo shorts for the boys or a navy blue skort for the girls. During colder weather, students can wear navy or black thermals under their polo shirts. We allow girls to wear black or dark blue leggings under their skorts. These can be purchased from the Warehouse for $8 - $10. They can also wear navy blue track pants. We ask students to remove their jackets when they are in the classroom as they are heated with heat pumps. Students can wear their jacket outside during break times. We want our students to wear the school uniform with pride. Please contact the school if you wish to discuss this further.
