Dear Families,

Congratulations to all who competed at Landy field last Friday. We not only performed well. but looked good
thanks to the new sports tops recently provided by the PFA. Several students will be going on to the next level
and we will keep you informed of their progress

This week we are recognising Juvenile Diabetes. Bernadette Pratt (Nick Mdl J & Matthew Prep C) addressed
assembly on Monday morning and on Thursday we are having JELLYBABY DAY. We have several diabetics in
our school and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation is always in need of funds for medical research.
Information on this is with the newsletter.

Our building project is now gathering momentum with the architect almost finished the drawings etc.

 On Monday June 1st there is a “Welcome to Winter” coffee morning here at school after assembly and this will
be an opportunity to display and discuss our upcoming project and how we will cope with reorganising the
school while construction occurs.

Have a good week.
