Parent volunteers run School Banking where students have the opportunity to make weekly deposits into their School Bank Account.
The school is committed to equality of access and participation by students to learning activities and resources, including teacher time and attention. The school recognises and values the range of experiences, backgrounds and ways of viewing the world which the children bring to their learning, and actively promotes the critical analysis of structures and practices which can restrict effective participation in society of some groups.
Merit Awards are distributed at assemblies throughout the year. They are designed to give recognition to students for their personal and academic growth. At the end of each year every student in Year 6 participates in a Graduation Ceremony which highlights the student's best endeavours in academic, social and sporting areas.
As a leadership opportunity, students are invited to submit applications to be a member of School Parliament. Two students from each class in Years K to 6 are elected each semester. Parliament meets regularly with a member of staff to examine matters of interest to them and their class members. Through participation in class meetings and Student Parliament meetings, students have the opportunity to contribute to school governance and decision-making about matters which concern them, and to experience active, democratic citizenship and community participation. This helps to build their capacity for leadership, responsibility and self-discipline. Student Parliament initiatives include fundraising for our World Vision child and supporting other children and communities who are less fortunate than we are or who have been victims of disaster or strife.
