Parking Concerns

For safety reasons I would ask that parents picking up their children from the College only pick up from the designated student pick-up at the front of the College or park in designated car parking spots around the College, Please do not park in front of staff or senior student cars.

College Statements and reports

College statements were either emailed on 6th May or posted on 7th May to families as per their preferred distribution method. To avoid emails being sent to your spam or junk mail folder please add the sending email address to your contacts. If you did not receive your statement, please contact Mrs Jo Williams at the College office immediately. Reports will be distributed to students in Week 1, of Term 3 and as it is College policy not to distribute reports to families with outstanding accounts, I would ask that all accounts be paid on time so as to avoid any embarrassing moments. Families who may have difficulties in meeting accounts to contact our College office to discuss alternative arrangements.
