The Prep 2018 orientation information was posted Monday 18th September, 2017.

The Prep 2018 Orientation packs have been posted out to relevant families. We have three orientation groups, Group A, B and C.  The orientation groups have no bearing on the grade the child will eventually be allotted to.

Final grade placement will be advised on Orientation Day, December 12th when we ask all new Prep 2018 students to attend between 9.15am and 10.45am to meet their new teacher, if they are available, and to spend a small amount of time in their new class with their classmates.

It is an exciting time for the new students and can be a little stressful for the parents if this is their first child attending school. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the office on 5282 1261 or email us at You can also reach us via our website – contact us.  Please allow time for a response.

The Sunsmart time of the year has commenced.

A reminder that hats need to be worn from September 1st until the end of April 30th.

Due to potential allergic reactions, if the children wear sunscreen, it needs to be applied before school and for re-application students are required to carry their own sunscreen. 

We're updating our communication channels, developing a streamlined approach to sharing information with our community.

Communication – First Steps

Dear Parents/Carers

This school is undertaking a review of its communication strategies and is developing streamlined approaches to sharing information and being transparent with our community. This is in response to the observation that there are multiple information means that sometimes overlap. It can cause confusion as to where they access particular information.

The school has already implemented components of Sentral for areas including student reports and Parent Teacher Interviews. A great advantage of Sentral is that it can only be accessed through secure log in details of each family. It is not publically broadcast. This ensures that movement of students (eg beach excursions, bus trips, local walks) and other details are not accessible to anyone except those who are registered users - you. You will also see this philosophy reflected in the information that is posted on our noticeboard.

As from this week, we have opened a Parent Calendar that parents and carers can access by logging on to Sentral. The Calendar will continue to become populated with news of events coming up. You will be able to click on links where available to see what excursion sites offer your children. Sports, interviews, school holidays and other events will all be available here.

In keeping with our goal of adding no new links/media that may confuse parents and carers, this calendar will replace Facebook and Website information. Over the next few months, we will be using FB, the web site and Sentral with a view to phasing out FB and the web site by 1st December.

To access the Calendar:

Click on your child,

Click Applications and then,

Click on the Calendar.

I acknowledge that it will take some time to become the standard practice for many but I urge you to log into Sentral and check out this new feature.

If you have any issues, please contact the office.
