SCHOOL UNIFORM

Following a discussion at SMT we have decided that all hoodies – school leavers, school netball team or other – should be removed in all classes from Monday 18 December.  As Friday 22 December is our last day of term this will be designated a non-uniform day.  Christmas themed clothing may be worn if desired.
