School Banking

Parent volunteers run School Banking where students have the opportunity to make weekly deposits into their School Bank Account.

Social Justice

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.

Student Awards

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.

Student Representative Council - SRC

Two students from each class in Kindergarten to Year 6 are elected each semester. The Student Representative Council meets regularly with a member of staff to examine matters of interest to them and their class members. The SRC acts as a focus for student opinion and in the development and implementation of policies that directly affect students. SRC members are able to experience a leadership role in their school community by representing their class at SRC meetings and reporting back to their class on SRC discussions and developments.
