During Term 1 and Term 4, students are required to wear their Mentone Park wide-brimmed hat when outside. If a student does not have a hat, they will be required to play in a shaded area, as we do not lend hats. Students may bring sunscreen to school but they must be able to apply it independently.

Homework will be due Thursday and new homework will be sent out on Fridays. Please remember to listen to your child read nightly.

Mrs O'Connor
We are very excited to announce that Mrs O'Connor and her husband Dash are expecting their first child later in the year. We are actively working to ensure a smooth transition for Grade 2O when Mrs O'Connor goes on maternity leave.
