Swimming Sports: What a fabulous swimming sports we had today. Well done to all those who made the effort to take part. A special thanks to the Year 7 and 8s who helped the event to run smoothly: the photographers, the head catchers, number runners and supporters.

A letter and permission for will come home on Monday. Please fill this out and return it by Friday March 8th.

Purple Day: The Student Council are running a Purple Cake Day this Friday to help kids in Haiti, Nepal and Kenya. There will be face painting and nail polish (each 50c), you can come dressed in purple mufti (gold coin donation), buy some delicious purple cupcakes ($1) or bake your very own cupcakes and donate these!

Nails: Speaking of nail polish. We are about to crack down on painted nails at school. Each teacher will have nail polish remover and people coming to school with painted nails will be asked to remove the polish. Please remind your daughters to make sure they come to school with 'nude nails'!

Sport: Mountain biking, bowls and gymnastics start this Tuesday. Children will find out about their option on Monday. They need to come prepared for action the next day.

Football: We also have our football programme starting this week on Thursday. Every class will spend 30 minutes with a football specialist, each Thursday for the next 5 weeks.

Mathletics: All Mathletics children now have their log in details. We have had a couple of problems which were quickly rectified once we knew about them. Please let us know ASAP if your child cannot log in.
