School Cross Country

Wed Sep 07 10:04am

Dear Parents and Caregivers



RE: School Cross Country



This is a reminder that the school cross country is on this Friday 9th September. We are aiming to start at approximately 9.30am. Please make sure your child brings clothes to run in, a drink bottle, and appropriate shoes (old sneakers, gumboots or bare feet would be ideal). They will get changed back into their school uniform after the cross country. 



There will be a sausage sizzle after the event organised by the SPA committee. Sausages will be $2 each. We will now be having Pie Day on Thursday 8th September.

Parking notice

A section of the main carpark has been coned off, please don’t park in this area after 8:00am. The bus will be with us for 3 days, unfortunately this does cut down the amount of parking at the front of the school so please use the hall carpark when possible.
