Information including access details for your Parent/Caregiver Surveywas sent home last week with the eldest in the family. If you have already completed your survey, thank you and please disregard this notice. If not already completed, the online surveys will remain open until 25 August 2017.

Parent Interviews: Tuesday 29 August – Friday 1 September

Many parents have scheduled interviews with their child’s teacher. If you have not organised an interview time, please contact Mandy in the office and she will coordinate suitable days/times for you and your child’s classroom teacher to meet. Research shows that strong home-school partnerships improve student achievement.


Individual student NAPLAN reports were distributed on Wednesday 9 August. The school achieved very pleasing results overall – well done students, families and staff! Congratulations again to Year 3 students who achieved results in the Band 6 level and Year 5 students who achieved in the Band 8 level. These admirable results should be celebrated.
