End of Term 1 ActivitiesWed Apr 07 05:54pm
There will be no assembly this Friday 9th April instead, we will have it on the last day of term Friday 16th April at 10:30 am.
This was going to be a swimming carnival but due to us learning swim safety this term and having swimming lessons in term 4, we will have our carnival in Term 4.
On the last Friday of the term, we will run Swimming Tabloids. This will be a fun way to end our time in the pool and for the students to show off some of their skills.

– Hygiene is improtant. Children will be sanitising regularly at school.
– All children are expected to attend school as per normal and their absences will be treated as per our normal attendance policy.
– If your child feels sick – you MUST KEEP THEM AT HOME. I can’t stress enough how important this is……
– For us as a school we will be running as per normal with some slight changes.
The above information will be updated as soon as we receive advice from the Ministry of Health.
