WELCOME TO STUDENTS AND PARENTS FOR THE 2020 SCHOOL YEAR...

It will be great to see you all again tomorrow, when the new school year begins for all students.
Hope you have everything and are ready to start school in the morning... we are looking forward to another great year and having you at Wattle Grove Primary School.

We have 2 new rooms this year. Rooms 32 and 33. Room 32 with Mrs Court, is next to Mr Sherlock's Room 31, which makes sense. However, Room 33 with Miss Wright, are starting the year in the BER Room, until their class is ready to move into.

All the teachers have their rooms looking colourful and interesting, ready for you all to arrive.
So see you all at 8.20 in the Undercover Area, otherwise in your class at 8.30am, when the siren goes and it is time to get set up in class for the day.

Mr Meachem, Deputy Principal
