With the remaining money (which equates to only a few dollars per family), we are ...

  • School Dates for 2020 Extra Teacher Only Days for Schools. Over the next three years the Government has given all schools an extra eight  Teacher Only Days above what we normally use. This was part of the Teacher negotiations and was given to reduce teacher workload and give separate times for Professional Development so teachers have more time in their work days. The impact though will land on our families and we do apologise for that. We will try and link some days with the Middle and High schools where possible and also weekends. In 2020 we are planning to take two of the eight extra days. We are letting you know now so that families can plan in advance. Our first Teacher Only ...

  • How is November going for you? It is certainly racing past with lots of fun activities and opportunities at our end. Students are certainly getting tired as are teachers and parents as well I expect. The heat and long days are lovely to have but can take their toll. It is great to have our lovely pool complex for students to have a refreshing swimming lesson during the day and for many, another afterschool instruction with Hamilton Aquatics. Thank you to all of you who have, and will, give up extra time to support your children and us with activities this term. It is greatly appreciated and essential for us to be able to offer these opportunities to our students. We realise not everyone is able ...
