Relay for Life 2021

On Tuesday 4th of May, Josh, Lucy and Mr Moore all had their heads shaved during assembly to raise money for Relay For Life, supporting the Cancer Council. This event, along with many other fundraising activities at school and in the wider community, was part of the school's efforts in raising over $15,500.
These funds will go towards important medical research and support for cancer patients.

Principal's Address Presentation Day 2020

This year the Principal’s addressed included something a little bit different than the traditional speech.

We wanted our students to know that even though it has been a year of unpredictability and some disappointments, ultimately, we have the luxury of living in a wonderful country and a wonderful community. At times we need to remember that the world is truly a wonderful place. 

Opening of the new Welcome Garden.

Uncle Col opened our new garden with a traditional Smoking Ceremony. Thank you to the P&C for applying for the Michelle Rowland’s Communities Environment Program grant. Without the grant we would not have this beautiful Welcome Garden.

Welcome Class of 2026!

We enjoyed having you with us on Orientation Day. Here are some highlights of your time with us.

The P&C meets regularly for members of our school community to receive information, discuss issues, contribute ideas and give feedback to the School Executive. We meet on the first Wednesday of the month (excluding holidays) at 7pm in the conference room at school. Our meetings provide a friendly, open forum to welcome parents to the school and to allow the community to discuss matters of a general nature relating to the school. We are also fortunate to have guest speakers in the form of our teachers who gladly give up their time inform us on important happenings or events at our school. You may choose to attend our monthly meetings, (it's completely optional) or simply just receive information about P&C events and our minutes through your email. This is a great introduction to our P&C and a simple way to keep informed.
