Dear Parents and Carers,

We finish Week 1 of the so-called summer term with, at last, some indication that weather appropriate to the season is upon us. Let us hope that it lasts!

Five free activities to entertain the kids these school holidays

Holidays are a time to recharge, relax and spend more time with your children, friends and family. Often, finding things that don’t break the bank but keep your kids entertained can be challenging, Luckily, we don’t have that problem in beautiful Esperance, where there is a wide variety of outdoor activities to keep you busy, and the best part is they are free.

Dear Parents and Carers,

The term is over and the holidays (or study leave for our ATAR students) have begun. I am sure that, for many, sleep will be a priority to start with but, as we explored in Chapel, I hope, too, that the chance to recreate in a myriad of ways will also be possible.

Dear Parents and Carers,

We enter the final week of term with a successful week upon which to reflect.

Dear Parents and Carers,

I hope that this will reach you this week: our internet connection failed again on Friday and it has taken Mr Abbott a great deal of time and skill to get us back on-line.
Operation Christmas Child
Happily the internet problems did not stop our Year 11 students from helping pack shoe boxes for this initiative.
