- Photo Catch-up Day
A reminder to all of our families that photo catch-up day is on Wednesday 2 December (next week). If any student did not have an individual photo taken, or any family ordered a family photo and it was not taken, please email your classroom teacher so that we can ensure that you are on the list to have the photo taken next week. Year 6 students will also have a graduation photo taken, so we ask all Year 6 students to be ready for their photo next week. Please ensure that all students that require a photo are in full summer uniform (not sports uniform, even if you have PE that day).
