Newsletter Term 3 Week 8
Message from the Principal This week is the quiet before the storm. Next week is busy, busy with athletics on Tuesday and Wednesday, Le Mans Go Cart challenge on Friday for the year sixes and Edu Dance on Thursday for the P-6 classes. The Kindy students will be showcasing what they have learnt in Edu Dance during their lessons for those parents able to attend. In the past our Kindy have participated in the concert with Mrs Hatcher liaising with the Edu Dance teachers. This year Edu Dance have kindly offered to invite parents to the final lesson to showcase. We are aware of the limitations of this for many parents and will endeavour to include them again next year on the concert night. A note has gone home to explain to Kindy parents but we are certainly aware it is not a perfect situation this year. Get plenty of sleep this week, next week is nearly here and then week ten and third term is over. Too much to do and not enough time to do it. Lee Bates.
