Incorrect information regarding 18 July 2016 School Development Day

Dear parents

Please accept my apologies but due to computer glitches some timetables have reverted to having a school development day on the first day of Term 3 (18 July). On following up and referring to the Board minutes 2015, this day has not been assigned as a School Development Day. Thank you to those parents who noticed the discrepancy and notified the school of variances in information.

Thank you

Vicki Jack
