Thank You, Thank You

Our school held its 150th Anniversary celebrations on 7 and 8 September. Starting with a special assembly, followed by a traditional aboriginal smoking ceremony and opening of our Sesquicentennial Garden. Saturday was an Open Day where past students, teachers and staff came together to reminisce as well as celebrate with our school community.  A wonderful historical display was set up in the hall and library, along with class stalls, green screen photo booth and jumping castle. Thank you to our wonderful staff who worked tirelessly to pull this event together, especially Mrs Morgan, Mrs Fletcher and Mrs Ford. Congratulations on a successful celebration!
