Many thanks to all the parents and family members who helped out with our recent Bunnings BBQ. We had a busy day and raised a significant amount of money for the school which will be used mainly to purchase resources for the children.

We still have some work to do on getting our Energy Breakthrough billy cart entry together, but things are underway. We have children from both Rokewood and Meredith Primary Schools to round out our team numbers, and a training schedule has been organised. This is a fantastic chance for the children to meet students from all over the state and compete with them in a series of races which encourage fun, fitness and a healthy lifestyle.

We are currently in the process of applying to become a registered provider of After School Care. We are undertaking this step as believe that it will be of great benefit to our whole school community.
