Summer 2020

Government restrictions are easing but the Department of Education has not given firm guidelines to schools and principals on how or when to reopen schools and school buildings.

It is important that if your child wants to be in a group with a certain friend/relative that they book in to the same start time. No swapping of groups will be permitted.
