Please check to make sure you are able to access Parent Lounge before the interview dates. If you are having issues with this, please speak to Tanya Chick in our administration office.
Once you have selected your interview time, I encourage you to record this somewhere important, so you arrive to your child’s interview at the correct time.

Students of the week - Week 5
school Swimming carnival
Our Annual School Swimming Carnival will held on Friday 19th March at the MARC (Mackay Aquatic Recreation Complex). The aim of our Swimming Carnival is to involve students in a school community event, regardless of their skill level, as well as developing school spirit and culture. The carnival will be for students in Years 3-6 and Prep to Year 2 will have a wet day later in the year. Year 3 children will attend the carnival until their races are completed and then they will return to school by bus.
We encourage all students to compete in at least one event as this gives them one house point. All events are organised under the age your child is turning this year. The permission and event nomination form has been distributed to the students. The completed form must be returned to the classroom teacher by Monday 1st March.
