I thank you once again for your understanding, patience and support during the past few days as we navigate through the uncertain situation. This was a very challenging situation for everyone involved and we of course wish everyone the very best, and we are confident that our community will pull together to support those affected.
We look forward to reopening again tomorrow. However, please note we will hold off any in-person visitors (parent storytellers, parent meetings, school visits...etc) for the week and resume next Monday 29 November. We have already contacted any parent storytellers who missed their opportunity to reschedule.
We are still planning to go ahead with our community events. We will ensure we complete all required ESF risk assessments and fulfil any COVID19 requirements/ restrictions. Details will follow shortly.
Once again, please save the dates!
Thursday, 16 December 2021 - Hillside Family Winter Picnic at Repulse Bay. Separate times for AM/ PM families.

Many thanks and regards
