Deputy Principal - Head of Garnsey Campus

I wish all our families a happy Easter and holiday. As always, Term 1 has been a busy one and students and staff are both looking forward to and deserving of a break. It often takes some time for Year 7 students to manage the routines and expectations of secondary school, and while as a year level their transition has been a positive one, there are many who are tired and in need of a chance to recharge their batteries.


With final costs and some funds still coming in, we cannot yet provide a final tally for our STAGGFAIR 2018 fundraising; however, we will be in a position to do this early in Term 2.
