Our Principal Tours provide a great opportunity for you to gain valuable information regarding our enrolment process, insights into the curriculum and student learning. A member of our leadership team will also take you on a short tour of the school facilities and help gain an insight into what makes our school so valued within our community.
All 2019 Principal Tours have now finished. Class structures for 2020 are now in process. In 2020 there will be one Principal tour scheduled each term for terms 1, 2 and 3. No Principal Tours take place in term 4. The 2020 dates and booking links for tours will be available in late January 2020.

CAPACITY MANAGEMENT PLAN

Due to a DECD assessment on the 6th September, 2016 regarding our numbers being capped, a Capacity Management Plan has been put in place (reviewed annually).
