Dear Parents,

Really there is never a dull moment for us all!

We are thankful that we have been able to complete three days of our new return to school 100% plan and we are hopeful that tomorrow will go as planned. Remember that on Friday, your child is at home and teachers and children will be involved with Three Way Learning Conferences with parents via Zoom (no in school option) throughout the day.  As events unfold around us or within the school, we will do all we can to keep you informed in a timely manner so please make sure you have the ESF App up and running.

We are working hard each day to support children in their learning, play and relationships with the 3M’s to success.

Thank you for your support in this regard. We are still refining our end of day departure with the walkers. To help please know our estimated release times for the students are:

  • Y1 & 2 1:00-1:05pm
  • Y3 & 4 1:05-1:10pm
  • Y5 & 6 1:10-1:15pm

Please support the social distancing goals by only coming in for your pick up. If you are collecting more than one child, please wait at the far end of the pick up area for 2nd and subsequent children.

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow and Friday to celebrate the progress your child has already made in 2020/21 and setting goals for the term ahead.


Kind regards




Neill O’Reilly




March the World

We are well on the way on our quest to March the World. We have more and more students and families joining us on our mission each day. Every kilometer counts and we have already ‘traveled’ over 1,200 km, only a few hundred kilometers away from our first destination; Bangkok! It is still possible to join us and the more participants we have the greater the chance of us meeting our aim of covering the 51,120 km trip around the globe.
