Cohort Entry - start of 2023

Following consultation, we are moving to cohort entry from the start of 2023.  Please have a read of this for more information.  Essentially, there are two start dates each term for 5 year olds, one at the start of the term and one in the middle of the term.  You can find all the dates and further information by following the link. 

Photos ready for ordering

Earlier this week all caregivers were sent an email with the link and password to access the photo gallery. Check your emails for this or contact the office to have it re-sent. Please check your children’s photos and that their name is correct. We have done some proofing so hopefully nothing has been missed! 

 Fundraising for this will end at midnight Tuesday 20th September. The school does not receive any fundraising donations after the main ordering period finishes.

 Orders placed and paid for by Tuesday 20th September will be ready to send home around the 17th of October. If you choose to have your order posted to you, they will be processed around the same time as photos are sent home from school, so will be received at a later date.

 Digital files are purchased as is and retouching requests may incur fees. If you order after the main ordering period closes, postage and packing fees may also apply as drop off at school is not available for late orders.

Spellathon Success!

Thanks to all our Year 5 - 8s who participated in the Spellathon to raise money.  We raised over $3,000 to go towards our camps. What a fabulous effort!
