Well done to our amazing kids who competed in the K-6 Athletics Carnival today. It was wonderful to see so many students having a go and congratulating each other. Beautiful school spirit! Thanks to Mr Slade for organising another great carnival for us and thanks to the rain for holding out until we were finished!
We were treated to a special musical performance at our assembly yesterday from Monkey Mob – Hamish, Fin and Blade! They played an amazing version of the White Stripes’ Seven Nation Army. I’m sure Jack White would be impressed by their talent. Great work, boys!
