Thank you to all our parents, families and children, from HJS, HNI and Shortbrook Primary, who supported and attended the Firework Party last week. It was lovely to see our school
communities come together and support each other. We would also like to say a huge thank you to the Halfway Parent and Community Group, without their hard work in the run up to the event as
well as on the night, events like these would not happen and we are incredibly grateful for your support and dedication.
