Dear Members of our Community of Faith,

Today was our first Whole School Assembly.  Well done to all the students who received awards. It was great to see all the wonderful work our students have been up to throughout this term.

We now have access to the front of the school. Students waiting for buses will line up under the undercover area next to the admin building. Access to office can now be though the doors at the front of school. Please remember when picking and dropping of your children to park in the spaces closest to the school hall around the trees.

Thank you to everyone who helped assist in any way on the Mother and Daughter camp. The secondary girls and keen mums started on a nice bike ride in Beechworth, while the primary girls and any other mums made their way to Feathertop chalet in Harrietville. It turned out to be a wonderful weekend filled with lots of fun.

Thank you also to all the staff who held a fun activity day at school for all the boys and any girls unable to attend the camp. Sounded like a very fun day.

Immunisations

Please make note of a date change for Yr 7 and 10 student immunisations. Students will now be given the chance to receive immunisations on Wednesday 20th March. 

Please return any immunisation forms back to the office as soon as possible.

Shrove Tuesday

Thank you to the SRC for putting on a fantastic breakfast on Tuesday. The students really enjoyed eating some delicious pancakes before heading off to a big day of learning.
