There are no upcoming events.


As the weather gets colder, we remind everyone to keep practicing prevention measures to keep well. This includes regular hand washing, covering your nose and mouth when you cough and sneeze and staying up to date with vaccinations. We are also doing our bit at school with air purifiers running in classrooms and learning spaces and hand sanitiser available in all learning spaces. These simple measures have assisted our community to keep safe now that Winter is almost upon us. Thanks to our whole community for your efforts to stay healthy.

Year 6 City Camp

It was a tremendous adventure for our Year 6 students as we took the long bus ride all the way to Collins Street on Monday. Whilst the distance we travel is not very far, I can report that the city camp really challenges our students and gives them some great experiences that will equip them with some fabulous life skills as well. Though I didn’t brave the ice-skating rink this time around our students all stepped out of their comfort zones and many took to the ice like ducks to water. My favourite adventure is when we brave the city streets at nighttime to eat on Lygon Street. Catching trams to get around and navigating through unfamiliar spaces is such a great way to build resilience and independent skills.

I personally really enjoy the various new experiences that our camping program is allowing and can’t wait for the remaining 2024 camps.

Mid-Year Music Concert

The annual mid-year concert will be held at Montmorency Secondary School on June 24th. I am personally looking forward to the super band. It is a great opportunity to see our students showcase their talents. Keep the calendar clear for this fabulous annual event.

Kind regards,

Kirrily Lamers
