All students participate in a weekly health and physical activity programs designed to help students identify and adopt healthy lifestyles and promote physical activity. Children should wear appropriate clothing for all PE classes (see Uniform). For health reasons all Years 6-10 students are requested to bring their PE T-shirt to change into prior to PE classes.
Positive parent partnerships are critical to our success. Recent research indicates that parent involvement in their children's education has a significant and positive effect on educational outcomes. We encourage you to contact your child's teacher if you have any queries or concerns. There are many ways in which you can become involved in your child's school: P&C, School Board, Canteen, school productions, volunteering in the classroom, excursions and/or attending learning journeys.
Parents and Citizen Association
The Parents and Citizens Association plays a vital role in the functioning of the school. It is the main forum for parent/carer discussion on educational matters. In addition, funds raised by the P&C are used to purchase items for use in the school.
The P&C is responsible for providing services such as parent participation and support to the school. The P&C extends a warm welcome to all new members of the community and invites everyone to attend their meetings held twice a term.
