SCHOOL UNIFORM I​t has come to our attention that a number of children have not been consistent in wearing their school uniform. Our uniform consists of a polo shirt and either navy blue cargo shorts for the boys or a navy blue skort for the girls. During colder weather, students can wear navy or black thermals under their polo shirts. We allow girls to wear black or dark blue leggings under their skorts. These can be purchased from the Warehouse for $8 - $10. They can also wear navy blue track pants. We ask students to remove their jackets when they are in the classroom as they are heated with heat pumps. Students can wear their jacket outside during break times. We want our students to wear the school uniform with pride. Please contact the school if you wish to discuss this further.   


This term  we  are  tracking  which  class  has  the  highest  percentage  of  children  on  time  for  school.  The  best  class  will  have  a  pizza  lunch  in  the  last  week  of  term.  Check  out  the  results so far and support your children in arriving at school between 8.00am - 8.30am.
