    School Jerseys
    by Grant Naylor - Tuesday, 17 April 2018, 10:28 AM

    Hello Parents,

    As we approach our Track and Field Season, we need to ensure that all of our school jerseys are here.  At present, we are missing many of our Lime Green school jerseys that were used for previous sports (Volleyball, Basketball, Relay Fest).  If you could please have a look and have your child look to ensure they are returned in the next few days, that would be great.

    Mr. Naylor
