Kindy/Pre-Primary Playground Construction
The Kindy/Pre-Primary playground refurbishment is still in its construction stage. Can all parents and carers be mindful of the construction works and of the area that has been cordoned off. To ensure safety and compliance, no child or adult is allowed in the construction area.
The school has recently had several Perth Wildcats (Alexandre Sarr & Kyle Zunic) and Western Warrior players run clinics for some of our classes. The students had a wonderful time learning new skills and spending time with the players. Hilbert even snuck in a photo opportunity.
