We are a community that takes strength from who we are: our cultures, our histories, our diversity. We will empower our students to seize life's opportunities and overcome its challenges.
Enrolments for 2020
We are currently accepting enrolments for our 2020 Foundation classes.
The Department of Education & Training provides the Find My School website, which sets out the designated neighbourhood school based on address. We encourage all families to contact their local school
While we cannot currently conduct our usual open mornings and tours, please contact our Principal Tim Warwick (03 5821 3100) for a personalised conversation about what the school has to offer.
While we cannot offer tours, we encourage you to check out our Junior Remote Learning website (here) - our Foundation teachers recorded their lessons, just like they would in the classroom!
And we have included some information and videos about our Foundation program below.
