Our senior students like to celebrate their major milestones at this time of year, such as finishing exams and leaving school.

 

We encourage parents to work with us to ensure their safety, health and wellbeing during this time. Be assured, our school doesn't allow alcohol at any student function whether held at the school or at student dances, farewells, sports events and barbecues outside the school.
