Due to the huge number of students wanting to trial for the inter school Basketball Carnival, I will be holding trials FOR BOYS ONLY next Monday 12 June before school and at lunch time. I will also take into account behavior and performance during physical education lessons. Please be aware that I can only take one team of 10 for boys and one team of 10 for girls. Thank you to all parents who have offered their assistance for coaching and scoring. I will be in contact when the teams are finalized next week. Good luck! Miss Mavric, Physical Education Teacher


Just a reminder that the Mother's Day Stall is being held tomorrow, Thursday 8 May. The children from Kindy to Year 6 will be given the opportunity to purchase a gift for their mums. If you have sent the $5 to school with your child to purchase a gift, it would be appreciated if you could also send in a plastic bag with your child so they can carry their gift home in it. Many thanks.
