The Parent Network committee had a number of retiring members this year and we would like to extend to them our gratitude and sincere thanks for the time they contributed to the Parent Network. Thanks to: Ann Lagreca, Liz Scott, Wendy Rowland, Lora Domine, Marg O’Dywer and Helen Groves.

One important position that did not get filled was the Communications Officer. If you have a flair with words please consider being on the Parent Network committee as our Communications Officer. For further information about this position please contact the Parent Network at

We are currently planning events and other activities for the school community for 2016. We will start the new school year with Welcome Drinks for all year levels. More details of our events for 2016 will be communicated later this year and early next year.
