On Wednesday 11th September at 9.20 a.m. we had a blessing of the new rooms by Fr. Caulfield. Parents and members of the community were invited to attend the blessing and view the rooms. The extension consists of two new Special Education rooms and an accessible toilet.

We would also like to thank Chris Harrison, our caretaker, for all his hard work getting the school clean and tidy and re-organised after all the work.
