Undoubtedly, at this time of such uncertainty it is important that we work in partnership, care for one another and ensure kindness remains foremost in our thoughts.

The wellbeing of our students remains our priority and whilst we encourage families to shield their younger children from the images of the daily news, we understand they may be experiencing feelings of worry and uncertainty about what is occurring in the world. Despite our distance, our School remains a united community, a source of support and our teachers remain a familiar voice for our students providing a necessary sense of routine. We feel a strong need to look after our community and support each as best we can.
