FATHER S FRIDAY We are pleased to say that we look forward to this continuing every Friday and look forward to seeing our dads. STAFF CARPARK Please remember that the car park is for staff only.

Staff are coming and going at all times. Denise Jeffs Principal 55 Channel Drive, Heathridge WA 6027 w -heathridgeps.wa.edu.au p - [08] e -
