Last Day of Term 4 – Friday 18th December

Last Day of Term 4 – Friday 18th December  - 1.30pm Finish  

A reminder to parents, that children finish school at 1.30pm on Friday 18th December. 

It is important that parents collect their children on time. 

Last year we had a number of very distressed children waiting at the office until well after 3.00pm.  Children can become extremely upset if all their friends have left and they have been forgotten.

Grade 6 Graduation – Via Webex video

Graduation – Via Webex video

Grade 6 Graduation ceremonies we have ever held.

I want to thank the Grade 6 Graduates and teachers for their outstanding efforts to present such an amazing Graduation. 

The Grade 6 Graduates of 2020 are an important part of history, and they will have many stories to tell their own children in years to come. 

Stories about when they couldn’t go to school because of a virus called – Covid 19.  Stories about learning via the computer, One Note and Webex meetings, and learning from their parents, grandparents and other family members. 

So whilst it wasn’t the usual Graduation ceremony, it was certainly a historical and memorable Grade 6 Graduation.

Good Luck in Year 7 and 2021!
