2018 Resource Allocation Model funding

In October 2017, all NSW public schools will receive a 2018 Planned School Budget Allocation Report.

Digital Communication

As many of you would be aware, our school has been moving towards digital communication with our community over recent years. Newsletters from the school to parents are currently done in the traditional manner of printed material given to students. Unfortunately, this form of communication is slow, often not getting home, expensive to the school (in paper and printing) and environmentally unfriendly. Many families are already utilising our school website to view events, school notes and photo galleries so this is a much better option than the... Read more
