Newsletter – Term 3 2023

Term 3 has provided a wealth of opportunities for students to fully participate in school life on- and off-site. Duke of Edinburgh camp was a huge success this term, with students and teachers enthusiastic about braving the barely-into-spring weather. Our sports teams continue to represent the very best of our school values: excellence in their winning spirit, citizenship in working together, and respect in their behaviour towards all competitors. Throughout this term, there have been Art, Drama, STEM, and Humanities excursions that have enriched student learning. We encourage you to read more about these activities in the articles that follow.

New Canteen Menu

Our canteen is open again using a new company. Serving an expanded range of nutritious lunches and snacks. All items are available for pre-order before 9 am, or to buy at the counter. Carers can create an account to order on behalf of their children or can create an account for their children to use.
Please see the attached for our new menu and information about how to set up online ordering.
We are excited about this opportunity to provide an expanded recess and lunchtime service and thank all our families for their patience while we have been implementing this change.
