  • Your child is invited to attend one of our 'Songs and Rhymes' programs, throughout May, June and July
  • Parents are invited to attend a New Parents' Meeting on either Wednesday 27th June at 7.30pm or Thursday 28th June at 9.30am.
  • Your child is invited to attend an Induction Morning towards the end of the Summer term
