Book Week is always a highlight and the participation and creativity in the costume making never ceases to amaze us! The 2 parades meant twice as much fun! We had sporting heroes, super heroes, scientific heroes and staff heroes. A great event that was enjoyed by all and most importantly highlighted the importance of Reading!
The Business Plan is not about “business”. It is about our children, their learning and their well-being.
The Business Plan outlines the school’s values, the array of enriching opportunities and evidence of academic rigour.

Don’t forget to write your mobile phone number on your child’s wristband and attach it to their wrist before you get to the disco.

In honour of World Animal Remembrance Month, on September 8 from 1pm to 4pm the Friends of ANZAC Cottage, in conjunction with the Australian War Animal Memorial Organisation, will conduct a series of activities along with a commemorative service to acknowledge the crucial role that animals played in wartime and to pay homage to these humble creatures.
