 FAMILY PHOTO

Thank you to the family that has brought in a photo!

Can you please bring in a copy of a family photo that I can put up on the Prayer table. If you don’t have printer access, please email it to me and I I am happy to print it at school.

SHOW AND TELL

With the high interest in show and tell in the classroom, we will be following this roster for Term 2. Please ensure your child only brings in 1 special piece/object on their designated day.

Please note,  if your child doesn’t have anything to bring in on that day that is fine; this is not compulsory.
