A Day on the Marsh is happening tomorrow! A few reminders... * Old shoes are a good idea if you are planning to go on any of the guided walks. Please take care as areas of the Saltmarshes are very slippery. * We all love our dogs, but please leave them at home as this event is about the birds! * This is an alcohol-free event - buy a lovely coffee from aliCart instead! * While there is parking on site, why not arrive via the beach? For a very short walk, there is some parking at the end of River Street. If you fancy around a 20 minutes very scenic beach & river walk, park at the Carlton Park Surf Club at the end of Raprinner Street or if you are up for a 3km+ walk, park at Park Beach car park. Even better ride a bicycle along the beach and arrive in time for treats and coffee at aliCart or a breakfast bacon & egg burger at the Bbq! * If you do drive in, take care as people will be walking on the road. See you there!A Day on the Marsh is happening tomorrow!

A huge thank you to everyone involved in the past year too. Road safety and the Education Act review were hot topics, we funded and produced the delightful 'When I Grow Up' road safety campaign, made mosaics and celebrated wetlands at Lagoon Park, and our fabulous school community raised an impressive $10,000 at the school fair and barbecues that has funded activities across all grades: books for the Raising the Bar literacy program, drama resources, science equipment, Grow & Learn at Okines Community Garden, musical equipment and Lego sets, as well as transport to sports and Grade 6 camp. Well done!

Use the footpath - Road Safety DFPS
How great is it to see the bike racks all full at school, a fun and health way to arrive each day. Did you know for safety children under 12 years of age can ride on a footpath as can an adult rider who is supervising them.
