This week marks the last week of Term Three. I would like to extend a huge thank you to all of you for your support and partnership in educating your precious children this term. I hope you all have a chance to spend some family time together over the school holidays, and that our children come back refreshed and enthusiastic about the last term of the year. Term Four is a fairly short one (nine weeks) and commences on Tuesday 8 October.
Finally a thank you to the staff. My staff work tirelessly throughout the term, and often then also on their holiday breaks to prepare the very best learning experiences for their students. I thank each and every one of them for their dedication and hard work this term, and hope they all have some ‘down-time’ over this two week break.
Have a safe and enjoyable two week break everyone (those of you fortunate enough to take some time off) and I look forward to catching up with all of you next term.

On Friday the Year Three students continued their love of reading and celebrated Roald Dahl's birthday at the Roald Dahl Rocky Reads at the Southside Library. Students participated in two workshops creating a 'zine' - mini magazine and participating in a drama based on Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
