Lapathon:

Our goal was to raise $8,000 and to date we have raised $9000.00 – an amazing effort! Thank you to everyone who supported our school! It doesn’t matter how much you raised, $1 or $1000, you are all winners and have helped us purchase laptop headphones for Years 4 to 6, robotic devices for the school and to complete Stage 2 of our Junior Nature Play Area. A fantastic bonus for our school!
At the first assembly in Term 3, Wednesday 26th July, students who ran the most laps will be recognised and incentive prizes will be presented to the highest fundraisers.

Naming our Faction Survey:

Thank you to the 24 parents who responded to our survey. All Year 3 to 6 students were also surveyed. 52% of parents and 68% of students voted for the River names option:
Green – Swan
Red – Canning
Blue – Bickley
Gold – Avon
Our School Board has unanimously endorsed the names and directed that they will be introduced in 2018 to celebrate the School’s 10th anniversary.
