MUNDARING WEIR EXCURSION THANK YOU

Year Two staff and students would like to thank all the parents who came to Mundaring Weir and cooked sausages and cut enormous watermelons  and grapes for our scrumptious lunch!  It was a highlight and a great day was had by all. Thank you to all the mums and dads who gave up their time to accompany us and we think we learned a lot about why water is more precious than gold!!

NEIGHBOURS DRIVEWAYS

More complaints from neighbours unfortunately. Could we please ask that you do not turn into driveways and reverse, please park safely and with respect to our neighbours.

 ANZAC DAY COMMEMORATIVE SERVICE

Year Three staff and students wish to extend their thanks to the Kapinara Community for beautiful floral donations for the stunning flower wreaths made by a merry band of parent helpers on Monday , 30th April! The flowers  made a really beautiful and poignant centrepiece to the service, so thank you again.
We would also like to acknowledge and thank Mrs Jo Coveney for playing the trumpet  in real time at the service. A wonderful community effort in recognising our ANZAC service men and women. Lest we Forget.
