Term 3 Week 10

We have reached the last few days of school. I would like to congratulate the children on all of their hard work in school during the year and during the distance learning process. I would also like to thank parents/guardians for all of your support throughout the year and through these uncertain times. I hope you all have a well deserved summer break and hope to see you all in the new school year.

I would like to thank you for all your help and support with the distance learning over the last 13 weeks.

Sad and all alone,

You make my tears disappear

With your touch of joy.

You shepherd me.

Bless me every day.

You give me rest as your guest

Forever in your home.
