Our Beach Party Disco for students in years Prep - Six is this Thursday 10th of September. The theme this year is "Beach Party".

Items such as a hawaiian shirt, board shorts, grass skirt, flower lays, zinc cream, sunglasses, rash vest, etc are some examples. Please note that Prep and year 1 students wear their uniform to school and they can bring accessories for the disco if they choose. Please Note No BATHERS!!!

Commonwealth Bank School Banking Update – Please Read
Concerns have been raised regarding the ‘Cosmic Light Beam Torch’ reward item due to the inclusion of four button batteries that can be accessed by unscrewing the back of the torch.
Whilst this reward has been independently tested and deemed to meet relevant product standards the Commonwealth Bank have made the decision to proactively withdraw this item from the School Banking Rewards Program.
Parents/Guardians are requested to dispose of any ‘Cosmic Light Beam Torches’ their child may have already received as part of the Rewards Program. Students who have previously received a ‘Cosmic Light Beam Torch’ are welcome to redeem an alternative reward item.
