Marron Farm Excursion At the end of last term, I had the pleasure of spending the day with a delightful group of students at the Marron Farm. We had a terrific day, feeding and patting a variety of animals and playing some sports. All the students were very well-behaved. Thanks to Ms Miniter for organising the day and to all the wonderful volunteers who joined us. Before School Reading Program Just a reminder to parents and students that the Before School Reading Program, which operates in the Art Room, Monday to Thursday morning from 8.20am – 8.50am, will commence for Term 4 as of Week 2. This program has gone from strength to strength and has made significant links with literacy improvement for participating students. The program provides a safe environment for students to read to an adult , access a simple breakfast and enjoy the social benefits of participating in such a program. A huge thank you to staff and volunteers for making the program such a success.
