We had a run through yesterday, and our children were fantastic.

Board of Trustee Elections occur in June this year. We have added a new section tour website with information about BOT elections. Health and Safety:
There are some important reminders for families related to Health and Safety and keeping children and adults safe in our school. Please do not be offended by these measures. They are simply aiming to keep everyone safe!
- Please ensure that if you are coming in to school for anything other than a drop off or pick up, you sign in (and out) our visitor book in the office. It is crucial in the case of an emergency that we are aware and can account for all adults in the school.
- Volunteers helping within the school on a regular basis - e.g. reading volunteers or helpers in class will need to be police vetted. We have just been through this process with all of our parents who went on camp. It simply means completing a form and listing identification on the form. From there, we send it away to be vetted. These forms are available from our office.
