 Please ensure that all stationery requirements are at school as soon as possible. The sooner we have stationery items in class the sooner we are able to have everyone working to their full potential. It is expected that students have the required stationery at school every day and if certain items run out, break or go missing, students must organise to have these replaced as soon as possible.
