It has been exciting to welcome Intermediate students back after their winter holiday break. Students started their first day back with a brief assembly where updates on lunchtime clubs and chapel were shared. All students were commended for their excellent uniform presentation and reminded to make sure they are keeping warm and wearing their Groves uniform jumpers.

Our weekly chapel will resume from Monday, July 20, with students meeting their teachers at campus 1, outside the MPC. Students arriving on campus 1 between 7:30 – 8:00am will be supervised in the Foundation Phase undercover area. Assembly will also resume on Tuesday mornings at campus 2 with Year 3 & 4 occurring at 8:30am and Year 5 & 6 afterwards at 9:00am. Parents are welcome to attend both the chapel and assembly sessions.

Lastly, parents dropping and picking their students up from campus 2 in the afternoons would have noticed some changes in our procedure in the carpark. Parents are encouraged to drop and go whilst remaining in their vehicles. There will also be a staff member managing the pedestrian crossing to safely move students from the concrete outside the admin office across into the interior carpark. We have defined the drop-off zone further with the use of orange cones, indicating where students can be picked up from. Thank you for working together with us in ensuring the safety of our students and families at all times.
