Athletics carnival

Get your running shoes on! We've been getting ready, at school, for this year's Athletics Carnival. The 2019 School Athletics Carnival will take place at John O’Dwyer Oval, Croome Road Sporting Complex, Albion Park from 9:45 am – 2:00 pm on Monday 17 June. The whole school will travel on two buses, departing school immediately after our 8:55 am class roll call. Parents and friends are welcome to join us at Croome Road. A canteen will be available and students are able to bring some money. We still encourage them to bring lunch and recess though, as there is no guarantee of what will be available by lunchtime.

Merits

New roster

The Community Garden Group has had a very successful roster system with a huge commitment from so many families who have given their time to our garden. The new rosters for both July and August are available at the Hub to sign up for continued garden maintenance. With the new water restrictions, we can still water lawns and gardens by hand-held hose before 10 am or after 4 pm, as long as the hose is fitted with a trigger nozzle.
