Annual Report

We produce an annual school report that is published on our school website. It gives details of all of the school activities from the previous year.

Tell Them From Me Survey

We take part in the Department of Education's Tell Them From Me survey and the Partners in Learning parent feedback survey. These give us valuable information to help us improve how we do things at school and help us understand our parents and students views on their experiences at school.

Parent Involvement

Families may help in school by assisting in the classroom, listening to students read in the classroom, volunteering on sports days, helping on excursions, being involved in fundraising activities, joining the P&C orĀ helping in the garden. Garden Club meets on Wednesday mornings before school.

Volunteers are required to satisfy the Working with Children Check (WWCC).
