With the advent of the ease of restrictions from Monday the 28th of February, the school has decided to take a gradual approach to change. The following are the changes that will be happening over the next few weeks. As always, we greatly appreciate the support of parents and the wider community. It has been a long road and it is terrific that we are finally able to relax some measures.
