2020 School Fees

At the October meeting of the School Advisory Council, fees for the 2020 year were considered.

 

In recognition of the particularly difficult circumstances many of our families find themselves dealing with at the moment with the current drought, the School, and School Advisory Council have decided not to increase school fees in 2020.

 

A copy of the 2020 fee schedule, along with information regarding payment options, is provided below for your information.

Questacon Science Circus

Last Wednesday all students attended the Questacon Science Circus here at school.

Questacon is The National Science and Technology Centre in Canberra. The students were able to watch and particpate in various science experiments and investigations. Students and Staff would like to thank our P&F committee for generously covering the cost of these shows.
