 Acquaintance Night

From 5:30pm – 6:30pm classrooms will be open for you to meet your child’s teachers.  To make it an extra fun family experience we will have a Destination Diary for families to explore the school.  When you visit a designated classroom or specialist learning area you will be given a stamp.  Once you have completed the passport, please drop it into the box in the COLA.  Come and play and have a chance to win a Uniform Bundle, games and Metrocards.


Come along to the Annual General Meeting at 6:45pm in the Library.  This is a great opportunity to nominate for Governing Council – the decision making body of the school.  If you can’t make it, you can still nominate by letting the Administration Office staff know before the meeting. We encourage new members, so please come along.

 Student Desks & Chairs

We have surplus desks and chairs in a variety of sizes which we would like to offer to our families for a small donation:

  • Desks - $10.00 each
  • Chairs - $5.00 each.

The sample sizes will be on display on Acquaintance Night under the COLA.  Please write your name on the list which will be taped to the item.  It will be first come, first served but only one desk and up to two chairs available per student. We will collate all the names and contact you when your items are ready for collection.  Please
