Parent Association

I hope everyone had a wonderful Term 1 and will now have some time to spend with family and friends to relax and take advantage of the unseasonably warm weather. I’m sure all the boarder families will be happy to have their girls home for the holidays and we wish you an enjoyable time.

There are many upcoming events  in Term 2 such as the Mother/Daughter dinner, City/Country  Fathers’  Weekend away and our PAL meeting. There is so much happening  and we look forward to seeing many new faces at these events.

If you have any questions about getting involved with PAL,   please email Tracey. Everyone is welcome!

We wish everyone safe travels and  relaxing, quality time with family and friends.
