We are well into Term 1 and there’s an abundance of learning taking place right across our campus now, with more to come!

Community safety | everyone's responsibility
Keeping children safe is the responsibility of everyone in our community.
Please talk with your children about how they can stay safe when out and about, including what to do (and not do) if they are approached by someone they don't know.

Reports about suspicious activity can be made to:
