Senior Report Evening

Wednesday 21 September 2016, 4.15 – 6.15 pm (please note change in times)

We are hosting Parent/Teacher Interviews in the school hall on Wednesday 21 September 2016.   Parents and caregivers of students across Years 11, 12 and 13 are welcome to attend.

Teaching staff will be available to meet parents and caregivers to discuss the recently issued end-of-year reports. Students are more than welcome to attend with their parents / caregivers.

To avoid long delays, we operate an appointment system. Please ask your student to make an appointment with each teacher you wish to see using the appointment sheet enclosed with their report. If staff do not have appointments after 6.00 pm, they are not required to stay.

Please bring your student’s report with you. We look forward to seeing as many parents and caregivers as possible.


Tuesday 13 September 2016, 11.30 am – 1.00 pm and 5.30 pm – 6.30 pm

Prospective students and their parents / caregivers are invited to attend our Open Day. Each session begins with a welcome in the Hall after which our junior students will give tours of the school.

If you are unable to attend the Open Day, or have any enquiries about enrolments, contact Deputy Principal, Karen Campbell on extension 706.
