Welcome to Term 2! Following the success of Term 1 we are looking forward to building upon the skills gained so far this year. Our program will cater for the individual learning needs of each child in all subject areas.

The Premiers Reading Challenge has begun and we encourage you all to participate and help your child log their books at home.

NAPLAN will commence in week 4, although we are expecting each child to try their very best, we will be ensuring it is a stress free experience.
