25th October

Congratulations to Eli H, Gray J, Sofia L, Abby B and Toby S who were recently ‘highly commended’ in the recent Tim Winton Awards for Young Writers. We had a total of 6 Richmond students, including Winifred, acknowledged in the 2021 awards. Very impressive!

Good luck to our squad of 59 year 3-6 students who will be representing Richmond Primary School on Wednesday 27th October at the MSDISSA Interschool Athletics carnival (B Division). The carnival will be held at Bateman Primary School starting at 9.00 am. Spectators are most welcome! A big thank you to Mr Thorogood and Mr Tifflin who have been very busy training our team.

All parents are invited to attend the P&C meeting in the school library tomorrow morning at 8.30am.
