The new school uniform shop is now online and open ‘24/7’ to take parentss uniform orders. We believe it will be a much more efficient and convenient system of ordering and purchasing uniforms for parents and will also hopefully reduce some administrative tasks from the school office. Online orders can be delivered on a weekly drop off to the school ( no charge) or delivered directly to the home for a fee of $10.00. Parents are also most welcome to visit the Double C store in Laverton,18 minutes from Newport down the Princess Freeway.

On Friday 14th August all the students (prep -6) will be involved in a Skip-a- thon to raise funds for the school. The profits from the Skip-a-thon will be directed towards the purchase of Math equipment for each of the classrooms, equipment for the school’s music and drama program and to the Yr. 6 Graduation Presentation. The Walk-a-thon promotes a balanced and healthy lifestyle and provides a fun and enjoyable way of raising much needed funds for our school. The children will rotate around 10 different ‘skipping activities’ around the school grounds and classrooms.
Each child has been given an information letter for parents and a sponsorship card. They may like to get parents, family or friends to sponsor them for the 10 skipping activities or to give a donation. There will be special prizes awarded on the day as well as all children that raise funds will go in a special raffle draw for a list of major prizes. We look forward to your support on this fun day.

The program has been developed to complement the Australian curriculum, and gives teachers relevant print and digital resources to use leading up to the visit and afterwards in the classroom. The cost of the Life Education program has been included in the annual excursion and incursion levy....Read More
