Friday, 24 February 2017

It is now expected that Prep students will attend school on Wednesdays with yesterday being the last Wednesday off. If Prep students are particularly tired then please talk to your child’s teacher about possible options/solutions. We don’t want to make school a difficult experience for our preps!


Photo Day 2017

Friday, 24 February 2017

School photographs will be taken on Wednesday, 22nd March. The photo company this year will be Leading Image. Photo envelopes have been sent home today. Each envelope has a unique ‘online shot key’ which identifies the individual student to the photo company. Family photograph packages will also be available, please collect your family envelope from the school office. There is the option to order photo packages online, however you will need your child's ‘online shot key’ number that is located on the envelope you will receive. If you are ordering photos online, orders for these photos must be placed before photo day to ensure your child’s photograph is taken on the day.

If you are unable to order online, please complete the details requested on the envelope, enclose correct payment and return the envelope to school on PHOTO DAY - Wednesday, 22nd March.

For families that require more than one order of the same photo or package, the unique ‘shot key’ will need to be used when ordering online, i.e. an order for mum and an order for dad. If ordering an additional package via the office, a second envelope can be collected from the office and the ‘shot key’ can be added to identify the student and the order.
