In this week's Junior Prep Assembly, Mrs Patti Blackhurst speaks about spreading kindness using 'rose words', and 'thorn words', much like the sandpaper and cottonwool words the students have learnt about before.

Grade 1P give us the bible reading, prayer and a story on believing. Grade 2 student Ava Longueira performs on the drums, and we wish happy birthday to students and staff who have had their birthdays over the last few weeks.
