For Parents

Before-and-After school Care

Before-and-after school care is offered (on the school site) by Camp Australia. Before school hours are 7:00-8:30 am and after school 3:15-6:00 pm.

School Community

Parents are welcome to be involved in the life of the school. Parents assist in classrooms as well as with excursions and special events. Parents meet twice a term with the Principal to plan and organise fundraising activities and to voice ideas and opinions of ‘school life’. The school is firmly embedded within the parish with excellent links and support.

Annual Plan

An Annual Plan is devised and reviewed each year, focusing on key needs within each area of priority. Our focus is on pedagogy (the art of teaching) in the area of Mathematics and on improving student learning outcomes. Ensuring that high quality teaching and learning occurs is a major focus. In each classroom, the Numeracy Strategy and the Archdiocesan Religious Education Curriculum are becoming firmly embedded. Literacy and curriculum differentiation remain an on-going focus.

Restorative Justice

Restorative Justice underpins our whole pastoral care policy with a focus on consistent and fair discipline. At all times, we strive to ensure that there is a consistency of approach which results in optimal learning opportunities for our children.

Staff

Our staff is committed to providing high quality teaching and learning programs. The school provides Special Education, Gifted Education, Reading Recovery and Library.

We have specialist EAL/D (English as an Additional Language or Dialect), Music, Physical Education (PE) and Information Communication Technology (ICT) teachers who provide the regular class teachers with their mandatory relief from face-to-face teaching. The Leadership Team consists of the Principal, the Assistant Principal and the Religious Education Coordinator. There are four teachers’ assistants who work in a variety of areas.
