From the Principal
We are excited to launch our new website which we trust will provide you with up to date information about our school.
With term 3 well underway our students have been involved in numerous activities that have provided the opportunity to inspire their learning.
Congratulations to our senior students who attended the recent Coorong Mallee Formal, we hope you all had a fantastic evening. We also wish our students all the best for their upcoming mid year exams.
We look forward to continuing to support and encourage each other for the remainder of the term and beyond.
