Important Reminders!
Open Night - Early closing Thursday 29 July at 2pm:
As previously advised, in order to prepare for Open Night, and to give the students who are helping a bit of a rest, school will close at 2pm this Thursday.  The buses will run at their normal time.

Lunchonline Changes:
Starting this term, Subway will now be available to order on every second Thursday. Sushi and Hell Pizza will still be weekly but sushi will be changing to Wednesdays (starting from tomorrow).  See below for full details.

Online Safety - Parent/Caregiver Evenings:
Online Safety is a huge part of our lives, particularly for our young people. Our children are dabbling in things in an online environment that we often don't understand and which changes rapidly. There is no question that the online environment is having an impact on education and society generally, both positively and negatively! This is something that we as educators and you as parents and caregivers, are having to navigate through more and more.

Constable Peter Bevin is supporting the DNI health unit this term by taking classes to help our students understand better safe ways to engage in an online world. He has kindly offered to run a parent evening for our community with key messages addressing online safety. This is scheduled for Monday 9 August from 6:30-7:30pm in the DNI school hall. I can not recommend this highly enough, Pete has first-hand knowledge of what is actually going on in our local environment and how you can best protect your children. 
Inspiring Maths Classes:
Sandra Rogers teaches a Maths Art class every Wednesday from 3:05 to 4:30pm in Room 8 at DNI.  She also teaches both after-school and school-holiday maths classes at her home in NEV.  Whether your child is a reluctant learner or super-keen but needs an extra challenge, I probably have a class to meet their needs because I encourage children to enjoy maths through games, art and creative challenges.  My classes are affordable, with Term 3 classes beginning Week 3 (9 August).  For more information find Inspiring Maths Classes on Facebook or email me directly at

For Year 8 Students - High School Open Nights/Days:
