New School Year

I’d like to take this opportunity to welcome new students, teachers and SNAs to St Paul’s for the school year 2019 – 2020. It’s an exciting time for everyone as we look forward to all the excitement that a new year brings.

This year we have some new playground equipment for the children to enjoy. Two new basket swings and seesaws were installed during the Summer Holidays and are being enjoyed by the students since their return to school. These were purchased using a  funds donated last year, including the coin collection organized by the Parents Association. A Huge Thank You to all involved!!!
