We greatly appreciate the parents who volunteer to help with all events; in fact, we could not run such a great Carnival without their help. An event like this is a true indication of our school spirit. Our students behaved beautifully and their support for each other and their House was outstanding. A well-deserved thank you to Ms Mel Fowler for organising such a great event and providing a wonderful morning for our students.

We were proud of the resilient and caring nature of our team; the way our students support and encourage each other is heart warming and their 'never give up' attitude is admirable. Thank you again…
