A word from our Principal

It has been a very interesting term and everyone in our school community are looking forward to the two week break, especially our teachers and parents. It is time to catch up on sleep and enjoy our families. We all need to still be mindful of social distancing rules and not leaving our home if we have even the slightest symptoms. This can be quite difficult, especially if you have elderly relatives you need to keep an eye on and restless children but it is most important. With increasing COVID numbers we need to be very careful as to where we go and who we see. I would hate for our schools to have to go back to remote learning again.
The Education and Health Departments advice is for everyone to download the COVID Safe app so that if you have come in contact unknowingly with COVID you may be traced. 
I wish everyone to stay well and keep safe over the holidays and hopefully, if all goes right we can begin assemblies and other group activities again soon. Maybe we can even have the working bee that we desperately need!

Goodbye, Alan.

Unfortunately, the time has come for us to say goodbye to our fantastic cleaner Alan. Alan has been a part of our Karingal Heights community for over 18 years keeping our school at an excellence standard of cleanliness. Almost every person who walks around our school, including the new cleaning company, comment on how clean it is. We didn't want to see Alan go but new regulations have meant that we can no longer employ him and must go with the company that the education department have selected for our area. We will miss him and wish him all the best.
