Congratulations to the children who received the Sacrament of Confirmation on Sunday and to everyone who helped out with this celebration.

A couple of weeks ago the Lions Club held their annual junior speech competitions where children had to prepare a speech depending on what year level they are in.  Congratulations to Rhea Ratgali who got first out of 16 competitors in the Yr 7 & 8 section in which she spoke about Cyber Bullying.  Well done Rhea.

Enrolment days and Tuesday and Wednesday next week for anyone wishing to enrol their child for 2017 including children who are turning 5 next year and transfers.

We are looking at starting our gymnastics and dance club again for those children who are interested. This will start on Friday 24th June after school in the school hall.  During the session, children will be split into different groups including vault, beam, floor, bar, dance and trampoline.  Miss Lind and the year 6 girls will be running these sessions.
Once registered to take part, each child will hire a leotard for $5.00 to do gymnastics in.  This leotard will be handed out at the beginning of the season and collected in again at the end.  You can wear long black leggings underneath the leotards.
Gymnastics will run on Fridays from 3.00 to 4.00 pm and has no cost.  This is available from Yr 3 and above.  We will need parent helpers to set up, supervise and pack the gear away each week.  Any questions, please email Suzy Lind at or Tina Souness on
