Your dedication, drive and enthusiasm over the years has played a huge part in what the PTA has been able to to achieve. A massive thank you!!!

Happy holidays to our wonderful community - and see you next year!


The next instalment of our Yr 6 leavers v Staff took place today out on the Football field.

The kids team took an early lead in the contest as the old muscles took a bit of time to get going.

At half time the staff led 3-2 but the fitness took hold in the 2nd half and they managed to push the score line out further, wrapping the game up in the final seconds 7-2.


Good luck to all our seniors competing at the South Zone Athletics today at Hansen’s Park
