We would love as many parents as possible to come. For those parents coming on camp we will be having a short parent meeting on Thursday 12 February at 5:30 - 6pm. It’s really important to be at the meeting on Thursday night if you are coming on camp.
We still need a few 2-3 man tents for camp. Please email Louise email@example.com if you can help out.
Whole school assemblies will be held at 9.10 in the church on Fridays. Parents are welcome to attend. The first assembly will be after camp on Friday 27 February. Apologies for the incorrect date in the last newsletter.
A number of families are missing uniform items from last year. Could you please check your child’s uniform to make sure that they have the correct items.
Prayer for our school

The meeting starts at 9am and finishes by 9.45am and is in the crèche room in the chapel.

This is the same as the School Donation paid by parents in all state schools, and contributes to learning resources. Please plan to pay this as soon as possible if you can. While it is a donation, we do rely on parent support through this as attendance dues go for land and buildings only.
$80 for the first child, $60 for the second child, $40 for the third child in each family .
Library Helpers Needed
If you are able to help in the library at times to suit you, please talk with Helen and attend a training afternoon on Thursday 26th February 1.30 – 3pm.
