Every year boys and staff from Marist College Ashgrove visit the Lavalla school. They are most welcome visitors. This year in morning our visitors worked with staff painting the metal roof supports on the verandas around the school. In the afternoon the Ashgrove boys joined our students in the classroom.

The visit of OLSH, Alice Springs involved the return of an old friend Br James Hodge. Br James was here at Lavalla in a previous life. It was good to see him back and also to welcome back Evelyn. The students from OLSH also helped with the painting and working with the students in the classroom in the afternoons
