We are so happy to see so many of the children back at school this week. We can't wait for the Year 3 & 4 children to return to their classrooms next week.
Some of the children will share their back at school experiences in the virtual assembly video on Monday.
We thank all parents for helping the children to stay safe and well and continuing to support the children during flexible learning as required.
Stay safe and well and enjoy some extra freedom this weekend.

2022 P&F Class Reps - Volunteers needed
We are currently looking for volunteers to be the P&F representatives in each class or year level for 2022. Being a class rep is a wonderful way to meet other parents, and is a huge support to the P&F Committee and the school.
The main role of the Class Reps is to foster a sense of community within the year level by:
· Welcoming new families who may join the school mid year
· Being a conduit from the P&F to the families in your class / year in relation to P&F social events or fundraising efforts
· Organising social events for your year level in conjunction with your other year level reps
If you would like to volunteer, or would like more information – please email: pandf@spmurrumbeena.
