Principal's Message

Dear Parents, Carers and Community,

A warm welcome to Term 4 to all our families. We hope you enjoyed the spring break and managed to take advantage of the beautiful weather with family and loved-ones.

A baby girl for the Vermiglio Family

We are delighted to announce that Mrs Vermiglio had a baby girl on Sunday 18th October at 11:55pm – Giada. Both mum and baby are doing very well. Congratulations to the Vermiglio family on the arrival of their new baby girl!

Welcome to our new General Assistant, Mr Adrian Crump

Mr Adrian Crump has been successfully appointed to our school as the new General Assistant after undergoing the merit selection process late last term. Mr Crump comes with a wealth of experience and expertise, having worked in many schools over many years. Mr Crump will be working at our school every Tuesday and Thursday, and every alternative Wednesday, maintaining and looking after the school grounds. Welcome to our school, Mr Crump!

Update on the Sensory/Memorial Garden

The garden is beginning to take shape and work is progressing very well so far. The landscapers anticipate to have all work completed in 4-6 weeks. Our aim is to have the Lone Pine area finished in time for Remembrance Day on 11th November to allow the students the opportunity to commemorate this all important event. Thank you to the parents/carers who are opting to walk through Salisbury Street, instead of driving during the drop-off and pick-up times.

School events in Term 4

Term 4 is known for its many events when we come together as a school community to celebrate our students and their milestones. Even though we have guidelines that we are required to adhere to, many of these events will still take place. They will look very different to the way they have operated in the past. Nevertheless, we are working hard to ensure that our students and school community get the opportunity to experience the true spirit of each event.

The passing of Alana Catton

Many of you may have heard the sad news of Alana Catton’s passing. Alana was the younger sister of one of our students, Sophia. For many years, we worked closely with the Catton family to raise awareness towards Mitochondrial disease, which affected Alana for most of her life. On behalf of the entire school community, we send our sincere condolences to the entire Catton family. Our thoughts are with you all

From the Office

Entering onto the School Grounds During School Hours

Please ensure that you come into the office, if you need to give something to your child, or if they have forgotten to bring something to school. The office staff are more than happy to pass the item on.

If you need to see your child or pass on a message to them, the office staff can help with that too. We encourage parents to allow us to pass on messages during break times, so that your child's learning is not interrupted. All visitors must sign-in at the office and wear a visitor's sticker. This is to ensure the wellbeing and safety of all.


When making a payment online you can only pay up to 3 DAYS before the due date of the payment. This is due to online transactions taking 48 hours to process. 

Other payment methods such as cash or cheque can also be sent to the front office and placed in the blue box labelled “School Post”.

Please note that we do not accept online payment for uniform or canteen orders. Please see the uniform or canteen order  form for payment details.

Permission Notes 

If you have more than one child we need to have a note for each child, not all on one note please.

Change of Contact/Address details  

Please inform the office immediately if you have changed your contact or address details, so we can contact you in case of an emergency. 

Bicycle and Scooter Guidelines

If you give permission for your child to ride a bicycle or scooter to and/or from school, and store it on the school grounds, please carefully read and sign the ‘Bicycle and Scooter Guidelines’ document (obtained from the Front Office). These signed forms are to be returned to the office. Once we have received the signed documentation, the school will record that your child has permission from you to ride to school. Please see Mrs Vermiglio or the office for details.

Lost Property

All lost property is now kept in the office.

All students have been informed of this and are all reminded to put their name on their hats, jackets, jumpers, all lunch/recess containers and drink bottles.
