Celebrating Term 2 at Playford College!
The College is very grateful to our dedicated and hard working staff for delivering an excellent teaching and learning program for all students in Term 2. They deserve a well earned holiday.
We are sad to say ‘Goodbye’ to Nathan Quadrio, our Year 6 teacher who is leaving due to family reasons. We wish him every blessing in the future.
We also want to thank our students for an impressive term and the reports families received this week celebrated much learning progress. The College is always grateful to the Board for their time and hard work with their oversight of school life and vision for future growth.
