Sandy Sheppard, Elementary School Principal

Dear Parents,

We had wonderful attendance at the International Day at the weekend. I hope you enjoyed seeing all the pictures on the school facebook page. March will be a busy month with the Gala, Family Fun Night and the Field Days. We hope to see you all at the play, which will be held tonight and tomorrow night at 6:00 PM.

Check out the new art display cabinet opposite the office and the new location of our Pride of the Principal (POP) board. 

Have a wonderful weekend.
