Please can I request the support of our community in making arrangements for our students to stay at home this coming Friday. There will not be any members of the Drysdale Primary School staff in school on Friday as we shall be attending Mel Burton’s funeral. If you are really unable to make alternative arrangements, and I do understand that this will be necessary for some families, please can you let the office know before Thursday lunchtime. This is important so that I can arrange for enough teachers from others schools to be here. Thanks to the generous support of our parent community, the school office will be open for messages and to answer the phone. Please note that the school canteen will be closed on Friday.
