Faction Carnival. The students are getting very excited about the carnival next week. The Jumps and Throws will take place on Wednesday 2nd September in the morning and the Faction Carnival on Friday 4th September. It would be appreciated if parents did not bring your dog to the carnival please. The P&C will be providing catering on the day. Order forms for lunches will be sent home this week. Mr Riley will provide more details about the carnival shortly on Connect.

Covid-19. Parents who attend the carnival are reminded:

– to keep the 1.5 metre physical distance from other families

-not to attend if you are unwell

-to follow good hygiene practices.

We look forward to seeing lots of parents at the carnival and fingers crossed for fine weather.
