With May just around the corner, we now find ourselves midway through Term 3. We are encouraging students to finish the year strong and prepare themselves appropriately for their year end assessments. Parents, if you have questions regarding your child's progress, please contact your child's teachers or counsellors, Mr. Randhawa or Ms. McPhedran.
