40k Zone

We recently received a reply to our letter to Roads & Maritime Services requesting a 40k School Zone on Trafalgar St, between the school and the train station. Now for some good news! RMS has agreed to our request and is looking at other traffic calming measures as well. Thank you to Lynn Clift who kicked off the project with a Change.org petition, P&C secretary Caitlin Elliott who wrote the formal letters earlier this year, and Greg Lekosis who has been doggedly following it up every other day in recent months.

School Toilet Renovations

The toilet block renovation was completed during the school holidays. After many hours of hard work by both the contractor, SCI Projects and parent volunteers, we think the toilets look (and smell) amazing. We hope the kids enjoy their fresh new loos.

Thanks as always to our dedicated team of volunteers and to all parents that supported our 2016 fundraising efforts for this project. Our special thanks also go to Jono Hammond of Cobden & Hayson whose generous donation of $21,500 in 2016 contributed significantly to the renovation costs.

Ethics Update

As Term 3 draws to a close we farewell Danica who has volunteered for nearly two years as an Ethics teacher and is moving on to complete her B.Ed in primary school teaching. She is replaced by a new volunteer, Saritha, who has already settled in to the class.

This leaves us with five volunteer teachers across years 1, 2, 5 & 6 and we would love to boost these numbers for 2018 and offer classes at all year levels.
