What a fabulous week we have had!

Our College Captain Charlotte Stubbs took out the prestigious Lions Youth of the Year and also was awarded Speaker of the Night. In addition Age Champions for Secondary College swimming received medallions and our Debating Teams have been selected and issued with badges. Bus Monitors have also been selected for the main buses to ensure students are meeting our standards and expectations. It is always a pleasure to reward and acknowledge our achievers.

Next Thursday 3rd March is College photos so please ensure that all students are looking their best for these.

On the website there is a Forms link for parents to download forms as required. Also online payments are now available on our website for creditcard payments for tuition/excursions/uniforms.

Any student arriving late – after 9am – must report to the office to sign-in before proceeding to class. This is extremely important due to the need of accurate attendance records in the advent of an emergency.

P&F held its first meeting on Wednesday 10th February in the Uniform Shop. Laureen Holmes was elected President and Tim Guymer Vice President. It was an excellent turn out. It was a pleasure to announce that the College has made another property acquisition next to our Primary Campus. This gives us 4 extra acres which will be considered as part of our Masterplan and Strategic Plan by the College Board.The next P&F meeting is scheduled for Wednesday 16th March 2pm.
