Rosa has had her baby!!! Corey and Rosa welcomed baby Serena Emily McFadzean into the world on Friday 5th February at 8:50 PM. All is well. I am sure that Rosa will bring Serena in to see us all when both Mother and daughter have got settled.

A warm welcome to our 24 new students and their families plus 3 staff to our school community.

Every Friday we will be harvesting from our food forest, please help yourself to any of the produce which will be placed in the Earth School information centre (pictured). You can find this between the hall and junior block.
