Reminder of importance of being at school, even though concerns around Covid.
If unable to attend school for a period of time, you are able to access work through connect. Accessing work via connect will ensure that the student is not falling behind in subjects missed.
If your student is absent from school, the preferable method of informing the school is through compass, alternatively, please SMS, ring or send in a note as soon as possible. Many parents find the SMS system the easiest as it is portable and can be done on the day the student is sick.
SMS 0400 204 440
Phone 6821 1708
Students are reminded that they are to be in school uniform every day, with loan items being available in student services. Hoodies and jumpers of various colours are not part of the uniform and students will be asked to remove these. With the cooler weather, students can wear a plain black undershirt or jumper under their school shirt.
If students have a good reason to be out of uniform, they can come to Student Services before school for a uniform pass. Uniform infringements will be recorded and could impact on good standing.
We are always looking for uniform to maintain our stock for loans and to assist needy families. If you have second hand items that your child no longer needs, please consider donating the items to the school.

Breakfast club has gone off with a bang this year; although it is looking very different with our new grab-and-go model. Wednesday’s remain as the usual Breakfast Club and we have extended the student service offerings to provide cereal to students Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday – this is available through Student Services.
