As the school term comes to an end we want to take this opportunity to wish all of our school community a very happy Christmas and very best wishes for 2019.
Christmas can be a happy time with families and friends gathering together. It can also be a challenging time for some.

Some good advice for parents talking to children include:
Have a great holiday, enjoy everything that Christmas brings but remember look after yourself and each other. See you in 2019 for a new school term!
