ATTENTION JUNIOR SCHOOL PARENTS
Dear Junior School Parents,
Over the last couple of weeks the children
in Prep have been learning “Advance
Australia Fair” (our national anthem). This
is sung at Assembly every Friday, so it is
important that they feel part of the group.
All Preps have been given a copy of the
anthem and I hope the rest of the family
can help them to learn it as well. The
children in grades 1 and 2 have been
revising the anthem and a copy is in the
newsletter. Hopefully all the family can
work together to learn the anthem.
