Swimming this week, our slot is 2.30 - 3pm. All children are expected to swim unless you provide them with a note due to a health issue.
Last days for Calendar orders is tomorrow, the artwork for your child's calendar is on the windows of the classroom, they are a silhouette of your child's head along with their own background design. I have a few spare order forms in class if you need them. From memory I think they are $10 each, a great xmas present for the rallies!
Thank you to those who came and helped at our school working bee day on Saturday, many jobs were completed and the school appreciated your support.
