Well done to our equestrian riders who competed last Sunday. This year we have some new riders and they are showing some real talent. One of our individual riders was place 3rd and our team was placed 5th. A fantastic result. Well done to all riders and their trusted steeds.

Welcome back to everyone & to all our new parents “welcome aboard”! We have lots of fun things planned for this year so here are some key dates for the diaries for the next couple of months:


Cake Sale   bakesale

We like to start off the year by getting everyone together for something sweet & a cuppa. So this Friday Sept 16th will be our cake sale/coffee morning. All parents are welcome to join us any time from 1pm onwards. The kids (1st – 6th class only) will come in with their teachers during the morning so if you like they can bring some money into school with them to buy a treat! If you would like to donate something to be sold on the day please drop it into the school gym before 9.30am on Friday morning. Please come along for a cuppa, a slice of something sweet & a chat with other Mums & Dads.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!
