Last week I had the opportunity of traveling to Bathurst with our Year 5 students as they learnt about life on the goldfields. Congratulations to all our students on their behaviour and conduct while on this excursion . The teachers were very proud of all our students. 

Parking in Private Driveways

We have had a number of complaints from residents regarding illegal parking.

We ask that parents please remember: 

  • Be patient and considerate of other drivers.

  • For morning drop off move right down to the end of the green fence and behind the car in front so that you don't cause a build up of traffic behind you. The whole area in front off the church is a drop of zone in the morning. Some parents are stopping at the front of the school gates instead of moving down behind the car in front of them. This is causing frustration with other parents waiting to drop their child at school.

  • Leave promptly after letting your children out of the car. You can not be parked for any longer than two minutes and must remain within three metres of your car in the drop off zone.

  • Do not park across or in driveways of residents, morning or afternoon.

  • Do not double park or perform 3 point turn in the street.

  • Do not verbally abuse other drivers. It is important that we set a good example for our children.

At times police and parking rangers visit schools and they will book drivers breaking the law.

School Fees

Instalment 3 was due on 23rd August, 2023.  

If your school fee account is outstanding please finalise your account immediately.  Thank you.
