Update on the Sensory/Memorial Garden
The garden is beginning to take shape and work is progressing very well so far. The landscapers anticipate to have all work completed in 4-6 weeks. Our aim is to have the Lone Pine area finished in time for Remembrance Day on 11th November to allow the students the opportunity to commemorate this all important event. Thank you to the parents/carers who are opting to walk through Salisbury Street, instead of driving during the drop-off and pick-up times.
School events in Term 4
Term 4 is known for its many events when we come together as a school community to celebrate our students and their milestones. Even though we have guidelines that we are required to adhere to, many of these events will still take place. They will look very different to the way they have operated in the past. Nevertheless, we are working hard to ensure that our students and school community get the opportunity to experience the true spirit of each event.
The passing of Alana Catton
Many of you may have heard the sad news of Alana Catton’s passing. Alana was the younger sister of one of our students, Sophia. For many years, we worked closely with the Catton family to raise awareness towards Mitochondrial disease, which affected Alana for most of her life. On behalf of the entire school community, we send our sincere condolences to the entire Catton family. Our thoughts are with you all
