Dear Parents,

As Term 1 comes to a close, I thought it was timely to remind parents of some important Term 2 information.

Term 2 Commences Wednesday 26 April

Please be aware that the final day of Term 1 is Thursday 6 April (Friday 7 April is Good Friday Public Holiday). Students return to school on Wednesday 26 April due to Monday 24 April being a Pupil Free Day and Tuesday 25 April being ANZAC Day Public Holiday.

Interschool Swimming Carnival

This Carnival has now been rescheduled for Friday 5 May 2023. It will be held at the YMCA Narrogin Leisure Centre. More information will go out to families next term, including information about the sausage sizzle orders that were placed for the original carnival.
