Year 8 Immunisations

By Benita Heritage

A reminder the last session of the Year 8 Immunisations is on Tuesday 28 August.

Students can wear their PE uniforms on this day for ease of administration of the Immunisations. 

Staying Healthy in Winter

We are now in the final official last month of winter; however, I expect there will still be some nasty flus and winter illnesses circulating amongst our College community. I encourage you to look at some tips on how to stay healthy in winter. Maintaining good foods in your diet, participating in exercise and taking other measures can help reduce health risks associated with the winter season.  

Please contact me if there has been a change in your child’s health conditions or if there are any health concerns or new conditions we should know about. We take a proactive approach in supporting our student’s health and wellbeing while at school and work together with families so this can be achieved. Please contact me via email at
