During the school holidays the Building Site was handed over to Harrold and Kite. Fencing has been established and there is evidence of great work unfolding. The joy of returning to school to begin Term 3 was short lived. Jumping into COVID-19 restrictions followed quickly by a state-wide lockdown gave us little time to welcome the girls back to school. Staff and students responded cooperatively and positively and before we knew it, teachers were teaching from home and students learning from their lounge rooms. We are grateful to all families for their ongoing support and commitment, and were delighted to welcome students back for face to face learning on Wednesday 28 July.
