Important message from Principal Mitchell Mackay re Covid-19 restrictions

Dear Parents and Guardians

Based on advice from the Department of Education, schools are open and it is business as usual for the remainder of term. We encourage you to send your children to school, however, if you choose not to this won’t be recorded as an unexplained absence.

The wearing of masks, both inside and outside, will continue until the end of term.

Parent teacher interviews update

Conferences are running. Please check your bookings to see if your teacher is contacting you by phone or whether you need to join their Webex room at the designated time. Room addresses are available on the Connect notice as well as instructions for how to use Webex. Please be advised that some bookings may be missed due to technical difficulties.

Please note, Webex has just updated their app and it may now appear as a different icon rather than a circle.
