Grandparents (special friends) morning...... 21/05/2019
Working in conjunction with Education Week, we welcomed approximately 100 visitors to our school.

Our Parents and Community Group put on a lovely morning tea afterwards to conclude the visit.

Prep students pamper their mum's......10/05/2019
Our Prep mums were certainly treated to some ‘high level’ pampering at the Prep Mother’s Day morning.
The students have been enjoying exploring fractions. We have been learning how to recognise a fraction as equal parts of a whole. We have been working individually and in groups to label and identify different fractions using the name, the symbol and a drawing. This includes fractions such as halves, quarters and eighths. This week we played a game called ‘Roll a Fraction’ to show our understanding of fractions
