Parent-Student-Teacher Conferences

All families with students across Prep-Year 5 will have received information regarding the mid-year PST Conferences in the weeks of June 19 and June 26. Students are strongly encouraged to attend with their parent(s) and should wear school uniform. These conferences provide an update on learning progress over Terms 1 and 2 and are an opportunity to reset goals for the second half of the year.

Energy Drinks

All students and families are reminded that energy drinks should not be brought to school at any time.  The evidence in regard to the negative impact of excess sugar, and of caffeine, on young people’s learning, physical activity and temperament in the short term, and cognitive development in the longer term, is widely documented.

All Junior School students should have their water bottle at school daily and they are able to have this at hand at any time throughout the school day. These are also able to be refilled at school as needed.
