Stationery requirements for first day of school

All stationery requirements can be found at

Please bring your child's stationery to school on the first day. They can name their books, and you can cover them, although this is not a requirement. All other labeling will be done together at school.

Y4-6 BYOD 2021 forms due asap

We still have about 80 students between Year 4-6 who haven't completed the BYOD form.

We need to start the process of assigning devices to children that need them, so please fill in this form asap. A reminder that all children need a form filled in for 2021, not just kids who are new to BYOD. Many thanks!
