This includes green track bottoms or pants and the correct school jumpers. We do have some second hand uniforms at the office but would also like any donations if students have grown out of their own clothing. We sell this for a gold coin donation.

STUDENT ATTITUDES TO SCHOOL SURVEY
Students in grades 4 to 6 will be completing the Student Attitudes to School Survey that takes place annually. The Department of Education surveys students to ask them questions about their learning and wellbeing. This data then forms goals for each school to help us meet the students’ needs. The survey usually takes about 25 minutes and the students complete the survey with either Mrs Dunn or Ms Strath.  

FOOD DRIVE – DIAMOND VALLEY FOODSHARE
This is a reminder that the Food Drive is on for the whole month of May.  Our food collection is for Diamond Valley Foodshare. 

Please remember the items need to be non perishable items such as canned goods, dried pasta, rice, etc.

Please do not bring fresh foods such as fruits, vegetables and meat – essentially no refrigerated items.

Toiletries are welcome and will be donated to one of our charities, such as Share the Dignity.
