As a school we have a focus on real life learning and accessing the community.  At times this has financial implications and without additional donations some of our community learning is difficult to fund. 


Sometimes you might be asked to provide an voluntary donation towards your child's education to cover community visits or other expenses.  There may also be occasions where parents/carers wish to make a general donation to the school fund. 

Whichever applies to you, we thank you for helping us provide the best possible education for your child.
