Chocolate: We still have boxes of chocolates to sell. If you are interested in selling a box, please let us know.

Recycling/Composting update: From January 15-19 we audited our school’s garbage and found that most of our garbage (91%) is not garbage at all but can be recycled or composted. We are in the process of setting up recycling and composting in our lunchroom and throughout the entire school. We are now collecting used batteries to recycle them. Please feel free to drop them off at school or send them in with your child in a sealed bag.

Skating: Our Cycle 2 and 3 students are skating on Friday afternoons. Please make sure your child has their skates and a helmet and appropriate outdoor clothes on these days.

School Fees: If you have not yet paid your school fees, please do so. Remember, if fees remain unpaid your child will not be permitted to participate in the end-of-year trip.
