COMMUNITY NEWS & EVENTS
Term two has been a very big one and what a magnificent finish we had with our circus performances over the last two nights. My favourite thing about the circus was the way that every child had the opportunity to shine. And shine they did, from Prep children twirling ribbons to our Year Six children juggling and mastering the Diabolo's. Well done to all our circus performers, the skill development was fantastic. I would like to take the opportunity to wish everyone a fantastic holiday. Please see the current newsletter for more photos of the circus.
