Kay’s Community Week Two News and helpful information

Hey guys

It was really lovely to meet lots of you at IEM’s and our first community day. Spencer Park was very low key and laid back for those who didn’t do Adrenalin forrest. I noticed a few new friendships forming and students building up their confidence. There were a number of new and old parents who came along as well and this was really nice as we could chat and get to know each other a bit.
Below is just a few notices that you maybe interested in. I usually send some news and information every week. This is also posted on our website under News. It is good to get in the habit of checking the News page every so often as lots of information gets posted there. If you go to the school website and click on News and then News you will see a few notices already. Some maybe relevant to you and some may not.
Anyway have a nice day off today and I look forward to meeting more of you soon.
