Year 13 Tutorial Week
by Lorraine Stafford - Thursday, 20 October 2016, 7:40 AM
Year 13 - Tuesday 25 - Monday 31 October

The 25-31 October is Tutorial week for Year 13 students. This means that teachers will be offering tutorials on particular topics and students will be able to choose whether they attend or not. Students who take Year 13 Science, Music, PE or any Technology course will not be part of the tutorial week so if they take one of these classes they will still be expected to attend their normal scheduled class.

School repaint starts
by Julia Davidson - Friday, 30 September 2016, 2:29 PM

Work has started on the total repaint of the school. The base colours will be shades of grey but each block will be highlighted in the colour that is being used in our Wayfinding project so that there is consistency of colours and everyone can navigate the site more easily. The third image is the final look for the Library/Art block. The majority of the work will happen over the summer holidays.
