I hope you have all had a wonderful summer with your families. It was lovely to see so many of our DTA students at our summer events and I would like to thank parents for their support.
We have a super exciting and busy year ahead and I can't wait to get started. I would like to take the opportunity to welcome lots of new faces and I really hope your child enjoys the DTA Academy experience. We are happy to have you:)
Please make a note of our term dates listed above and some of the events we have coming up.
Notice for all parents/students who attend Saturday classes at Benhurst Primary School-
I will be sending out reminders on class times and listing which zone you need to drop off and pick up your child for the different classes.
Car Park - Kindly drive very carefully and slowly when entering the School. We have a lot of children who attend our classes and their safety is our first priority.
SHOP - Please note Linda who runs our on site shop will not be in until 24th September. You can still order and collect uniform from us online and I will give orders to your class teachers to pass on. Any issues please email me and I will organise any changes.
