We are constantly striving to improve the ways in which we communicate with our community and are excited to be launching a News Bulletin to replace the fortnightly newsletter. The News Bulletin will give you an ongoing newsfeed and real time reporting of school events and activities. Due to increased efficiencies that the online platform offers we will be able to increase the content giving you a greater insight into the daily happenings at SBS!

You can access the News Bulletin by clicking on the link below or via the School App (links, news bulletin). When you access News Bulletin you are able to subscribe and receive it direct to your inbox.
