Our 2020 school year will begin for students on Wednesday 29th January at 8.45am.We will begin the day with a short assembly on the netball court. Once the students are in their classrooms, family and friends are invited to join together in the hall for morning tea.
Holidays can take students away from friends and their usual school supports. Changes to routine can cause some young people to feel stressed, isolated and alone. Parent support is very important at this time.

Our Journey...We understand that it is important to ensure and guarantee children’s safety within the community and the school. We also think it is important that all students know about Child Safety. So the JSC discussed who needs to be kept safe and how we can do that and we decided...
Sweeney's Real Estate has recently become one of our sponsors. Thanks Sweeneys.
Our Year 5/6 students along with the JSC worked together with Mrs Olive Chodowski to create a school prayer. It is included at the beginning of our school assemblies, said within classroom prayer times and at school masses.
