A Message from Ken and Lisa

End of year dismissal

A reminder that next Friday 18th December will be the final day of the year. All students will be dismissed at 1:30pm on this day after assembly.

Semester Two Reports

Semester Two reports will be available for download from Compass from 4:00pm Thursday 17th December.

End of Year Assembly

The end of year assembly will be held in the hall at 1pm. Unfortunately, we cannot allow parents attending because of the current restrictions. We are currently investigating the best possible way to either stream it to parents or record it for parents to view at their leisure. This is to ensure that parents of exiting Year 6 students and parents of the 2021 school leaders can share the experience. More details will be released next week. The tunnel, which all exiting students go through before they leave the school, will take place from the middle hall door past the new Learning Centre. Parents are welcome to watch this event from the Coast Banksia side fence.
