Term 2 Week 9

Dear Parents, Carers and Students,

SCHOOL FACILITIES UPGRADE

We are pleased to advise that after a long period of construction the new girls’ toilet block and walkway will be completed prior to the beginning of next term. This will be a great addition to our school. The block of eight girls and three female staff toilets will replace the two existing demountable toilet blocks which will be removed from our site in coming weeks. Thanks to all staff and students for their patience during this construction period- in particular the five teachers and classes who have endured the brunt of the inconvenience and noise – 1S, 1 / 2 D, 1W, 2M and 2D.
