Assembly and Shared Lunch

Don't forget this Friday is the end of term.  We will be having assembly starting at 12 o'clock followed by a shared lunch, and maybe if the weather is fine a Parents Vs. Kids Rippa Rugby game! We have had lots of new families join our school this year so please encourage them to come out and get to know everyone.

Please bring a plate of finger food for the shared lunch.

thanks for the birthday surprise :)

Nothing makes turning 40 easier than an office full of balloons! It's the neatest my office has looked in ages :)
Thanks everyone for all the cards, happy birthday songs, wishes, flowers, and of course balloons!
Ms McLellan

Happy Birthday to Ms McLellan - judging by the amount of flowers that were delivered to school, it must have been a BIG one!!!

What a great day for the cross country - thank goodness they postponed it from last week.

A HUGE congratulations to Hayley who came FIRST in her age group!

A fanstastic finish for Joshua who came sixth in his age group and a great run by Amy.  There were a lot of children racing so our kids did extreamly well.
