School Open Day
We would like you to visit our school for our annual open day, to come and see the school grounds and facilities. Parents are invited to bring their pre-school aged children to meet the principal, staff and parents.

The open day will be held on Tuesday, 13th September, from 10am until 11.15, with an invitation to stay for recess. Morning tea will be provided for children and parents. If you wish to find out more about our school please call us on 5281 3291, or check out our website

Swimming Program
Our swimming program took place last week at Leisure Link, and it was a very productive week for the children. Small teaching groups and excellent facilities allowed the children to make real progress with swimming strokes and water awareness during the week.

Christmas In July
Around 60 people from our Shelford community and away enjoyed our Christmas in July event recently. There was plenty to eat and drink for everybody, a festive atmosphere pervaded every corner, and Santa Claus himself made an appearance.

I would like to thank most sincerely all those who contributed to the event, as well as those who supported it by coming along. Special thanks go to Leeanne, Beck and Michelle for all of their hard work and organisation, as well as donations of food. Special thanks to all of our students and former students who helped on the night, as well as staff, parents, and community members.
