Primary Update

January 11

A big week of admissions....

This week we will be conducting Year One Admissions for our 2016/17 Year One students. We will have over 250 students and possibly 500 parents visit our school. The week involves 10 interview rounds which will be conducted between Monday and Thursday. The following staff will be involved in interviews throughout the week:


  • All PLT members
  • All Year One teachers
  • All LDT teachers and EAs
  • Leanne Sercombe
  • Bob Preist and Annie Wong


During the day if you have any concerns that require support, can I please ask that you address them through your team leader. The primary office will be empty for majority of the day.
