As the term comes to a close, thank you to all the parents who attended the Parent Teacher interviews this week. It was wonderful to reconnect and also have time to sit, chat and gain insight into the learning and progress that the children have made throughout the term.
Although the term has had its many disruptions, we have also shared in many special celebrations and activities, some of which included the Primary Leadership Induction, Picnic on the Green, the P&F Disco, the Easter Chapel and our first SCISSA Sports Gala day.

This Easter holiday, we have a great example of a parent’s love, from the cross. It is sacrificial, and it is permanent. You will love your kids forever. But, will you have the privilege of loving them eternally? John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” When God watched Jesus go to the cross, He sent a powerful message to all of us. God would do anything to make sure we could be with Him eternally. He loves His kids with the highest form of love, the sacrificial love of a parent.
I would like to wish you a very blessed Easter and a safe and relaxing holiday and I look forward to seeing you all safely back at school at the start of Term 2.
Gail Mitchell – Head of Primary
