Principal’s Comment 4th May 2018

Dear Parents and Carers,

I hope that you all managed to enjoy opportunities together over the holidays, and had a good and restorative time. Enjoyable as holidays are it is always good to welcome the students back, this time – appropriately, given the recent weather – smartly dressed in their winter uniforms.

Research conducted by the University of Sydney, involving primary and high school students from 15 Australian schools, examined their academic and personal wellbeing outcomes over two years.
