Foundation (Prep) Information Booklet
A Q&A session for parents of enrolled students will be held via WebEx on Wednesday 2nd September 2020 from 5-6 pm, in lieu of our information night due to COVID-19 restrictions.
During this session staff will be available to answer any questions you may have. It would be beneficial if parents could view our introductory video clip above prior to this session and also click on the virtual tour of the school from our Principal Fran Van Lambaart if you haven’t already done so in order to come equipped with any unanswered questions you may still have.
We look forward to working with you as we begin this exciting journey with your family.
