End year reports

Our end year reports will be going home to parents this Friday, 14th December.

A reminder to parents who receive separate copies of reports for their child/ren (ie. one copy for each parent) that these will be posted out to both parents at the close of business on Friday unless you phone the office prior to this to arrange a collection time or alternate arrangement.


A reminder that the All Schools triathlon is tomorrow. If your child is participating, please ensure they are at Bellerive Beach (just below the cricket oval) at least 1 hour prior to their event time (see attached timetable). Students with bikes will need to have their bikes placed in the racks before 9.45am unless otherwise arranged with Mr Fitzpatrick. The Margate gazebo will be set up for shelter and shade. Mr Fitzpatrick, Mr Friend and Mrs Jarman will be supervising the children throughout the day. Parents are welcome to stay and watch the students compete. If you have any last minute queries please email Mr Fitzpatrick -
