Appointments with Staff

Parents are encouraged to maintain regular contact with class teachers. It is preferable to make an appointment to see the classroom teacher or other member of staff to ensure that quality conversation can be had to benefit both the parent and the staff memeber.  Is it not ideal to try to engage in detailed conversation with a classroom teacher as they are beginning their day with the students.  Appointments with staff can be made via the office on Ph: 3372 3408 or sending a note with your child. If staff are unavailable to speak with you, please leave a message and the teacher will endeavour to return your call as soon as possible.  

Information and Permission Notes

On many occasions during your child’s schooling, there will be opportunities for excursions away from school. A school excursion or camp is a learning experience designed to motivate students and provide first-hand experiences which could not otherwise be provided in the classroom or at school. School excursions and camps are an important part of our curriculum and are regarded as compulsory. Appropriately planned and supervised camps and excursions assist greatly in the students’ understanding of the community in which they live.
