Dear Parents and carers

I hope you are all back into the swing of learning from home for the beginning of Term 4. This term will see a lot of changes as we gradually transition back to face-to-face learning as the Premier announced in the adjusted return to school plan last week. Attached are the key dates and details to help prepare you and your family for the return, including some changes in the staged return to school.

In Week 1, school photos of all the students were taken and on Thursday 1st of April, the last day of school photos were issued to the students who attended. For any students who were not present at school on the last day of term their photos will be provided to them on the first day they resume Term 2 (Tuesday 20th April).
