Year of Entry

Children can commence Pre-Primary provided they turn five prior to the 30 June in the year they commence.

After School

Parents are asked to notify the school if a child is not going home in the usual manner or with his/her usual carer. This is an important safety issue. Parents need to notify the school in writing if their children are walking or riding home.

After school pick up

Children who walk or ride home must leave the grounds following the footpath.

Please do not park in the marked 'Kiss 'n Drive' pick up area at any time. Staff will ensure your child gets safely into the car in this area. Parents who wish to park and wait for their children either in the car or outside the classroom are asked to park in the marked areas in the lower car park.

For safety reasons please DO NOT:

  • call your child across the car park to your parked car
  • try to overtake in the car park
  • cause a traffic jam either in the car park or the round-a-bout

Please do not park in the disabled parking bay unless you are displaying the acrod sticker.


The AGM is held once a year, in November. At this meeting the budget for the New Year is presented along with reports from the Principal, Board Chair and President of the P & F. The AGM is open to all community members.


Children in Pre Primary to Year 6 are in compulsory years of school and must be at school for the whole day. Punctuality is vital. School commences at 8.25am, it is MOST important that all children arrive at school on time.

Absences and sickness are to be reported to the office by phone, letter or email. Notes and/or medical certificates are required if the child is away for more than two days. Parents can text the school about their child’s absence on 0438 404 375 or use the Absentee Form on our website.
