Carols tonight will be in the hall

Due to the air quality in Canberra today and following advice from ACT Health and Catholic Education, the carols will be held in the school hall tonight.

Due to after school care using the hall please do not arrive before 5:30pm. The BBQ will be available for food and drink purchases.

Please do not bring chairs as you will be able to use chairs in the hall. 

Looking forward to seeing you tonight to farewell our fabulous Mrs Jones and share in some Christmas spirit as a school community.
