On Saturday 25 April 2020, Anzac Day was celebrated much differently with no community gatherings permitted. Our community managed to find new ways to pay their respect to those who have served our nation, with many up at dawn to participate in a virtual dawn service and hear the sound of the last post echoed through the suburbs.
After a busy and challenging first term, I trust you and your family enjoyed time together over the Easter and term break.
As we approach the end of what has been a fast-paced and constantly changing term, we thank our parent/carer community and boys for their understanding and support during this challenging time.
Attention parents/carers: please check Edsmart for the most recent communication that requires your response by 12.00pm Thursday 26 March 2020.
