SUMMER UNIFORM: We are now heading rapidly towards the end of Term 3! It seems early to start thinking ahead to warm summer days, especially as the overnight temperatures can still be quite chilly.
The change over into summer uniform commences at the beginning of Term 4.
If you are new to the School, or need different sizes or different styles of uniform, or just a top up for your all year round gear, please think about coming into the Shop early to get fitted out. Remember, the Senior School returns to wearing hats for the summer terms too.
We will be opening an extra day in the last week of Term 3: Friday 25 September from 12noon to 5.00pm.
We will also be opening for two days in the holidays: Friday 9 October 10am to 4pm and Saturday 10 October from 10am to 1pm to assist with the changeover. It will not be necessary to make appointments, so please come down to the Shop and we will help you with all you need.
Please feel free to call anytime if you have a particular query on 6202 6486.
