Dear Families

When booking/cancelling children there are a number of options for you to choose, so please ensure you select the option you require.  I also ask that you check your statements weekly and are in agreeance with all the attendance details, particularly the type of session you have been charged for.  It is important that, if there are any discrepancies, you make contact as quickly as possible so that your account may be rectified.  As bookings are created by parents, the fees are generated as a result of your selections. 

With thanks,  Melanie Heaney

Aussie Breadtags for Wheelchairs

We have now become a registered collection point for a Charity organisation called "Aussie Breadtags for Wheelchairs".  The company collects bread tags and provides them to  a recycling company in Robe for a small amount of money, This money then goes towards buying wheelchairs for those in need in South Africa. 

A collection box is available in the Front office.
