Principal's Focus

“Coming together is the beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.” (Henry Ford)


Well done to all of our students for their conduct during morning line ups and conduct in school; it certainly is all coming together. As we move towards trialling our single lunch routines, we ask them all to work together to create the school environment we are aspiring to achieve.

Dear Parents/Carers

Re: Parking on Wednesday 19 June 2024

We have been advised to avoid the New Green Avenue and Field View Avenue, especially in the morning on 19 June 2024 as a large load will be arriving and using the car park by the recycling facility. 

For Health and Safety reasons there will be no public access to the car park.


Mr P Williams

Assistant Principal
