In case of emergency
It's time to update the contact information we have for all of our students. If your child is injured or ill and we are unable to communicate with you directly, having an emergency contact is critical. Emergency contacts act on your behalf, in making decisions or reaching out to those who can (e.g. your spouse, partner or parents). Forms have been sent home, so please complete them and return as soon as possible.

A t-shirt, armband, headband, face paint, coloured hair are all okay. Join us on the basketball court from 9:15am.

Get creative with a $100 voucher

The NSW Government is helping kids get creative with the new Creative Kids program. Parents, guardians, and carers can apply for a voucher with a value of up to $100 per calendar year for each student aged 4.5 to 18 years old enrolled in school. The voucher may be used with a registered activity provider for registration, participation and tuition costs for creative arts, speech, drama, dance, digital design, coding, and music lessons and other  activities. The voucher can be used at any time during the calendar year it was issued. The program runs year-round, so kids can get creative at any time. Login to your MyServiceNSW account to register online at
