To enrich the learning experience of each child we offer a suite of programs including Gifted & Talented, Specialist Engineering, Specialist Artsmedia, Specialist Australian Rules Football and school based programs in Academic Extension, Netball, Dance, Music, Aboriginal Education and nationally accredited vocational certifications. Rebuilt in 2012, today our students have access to a $63 million dollar state-of-the-art school campus, specialist teachers and links to various tertiary and industry bodies.

 

The 2024 Culture Awareness Survey is now open. This survey will assist the school in better understanding our strengths and weaknesses. Families are strongly encouraged to participate. Your participation will help identify any issues that our school needs to address and give feedback on what is going well. The school will be able to make better decisions, assess progress, and adopt best practices for our current and future planning.

In a friendly netball match during lunch yesterday, teachers versus students concluded with teachers taking the bragging rights. Winning was a lovely way to also say farewell to Miss Cosh, who is leaving us at the end of this term. We wish Miss Emma Cosh all the very best in her future endeavours.Image attachment
