We have attached a copy of the 3 different road closures to our email so please have a look at them and see how it affects you. A copy of our road closure is shown below.
Please do not park in the western side of Reed St from 21st May to 12 June due to road works. Buses need this area for collecting children.
School Ties
We have some more school ties in stock which cost $15 each. Please do not machine wash.  Ties are made on a bias so will not tolerate machine washing.  If washed this way, guarantee will be void. The fabric is a very close weave so a gentle sponge with a clean wet cloth is usually all that is needed. For more difficult stains, a mild cleaning agent on a wet cloth with remove most marks.  Dry in a warm position (never tumble dry)
