Learning to swim competently, and learning water safety techniques, is extremely important for your child’s future safety. Children who have very little experience in and around water, those who can’t swim right through to confident swimmers, are expected to attend. Due to the increase in enrolment, this year’s program will be for grade prep to grade four. Grade five and six students, who are not confident swimmers, will also be included.

Music News "Show Me The Money" - Thursday 11th September

show me the moneyLast night's school concert was a great success on many levels and an evening I was proud to attend and thoroughly enjoyed. Congratulation to all the students, parents and teachers who contributed to this event. A lot of time, energy and creativity was channelled towards this successful evening. Of course, a very special thanks to Stephen Sharpe our Music teacher who was the driver of this event. There were too many highlights from last night to mention and there were many students who shone and really surprised us and their families. The opportunity to perform in a concert at this venue is a valuable one for our students and one they will remember for a very long time. Once again, congratulations and thank you to everybody involved.
