Principal’s Message

God With Us

“…and they will call him Immanuel – which means ‘God with us’.”
Matthew 1.23b.

It is wonderful to finish the year and celebrate with our students, friends and families the great things that have been achieved this year.

We hope you all have a peaceful, pleasant and regenerative holiday and start to 2019.

Be mindful this Christmas that Jesus, our Lord and Saviour, is ever present with us. He has another name – Immanuel, which means ‘God with us.’

Don’t be alone this Christmas. Share it with the One who is the reason for this time of celebration, for he is with us

Preparing our Students for a Future in Technology

The school appreciates the support of parents of students in Year 2-5 who will be impacted by the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy for 2019. The financial investment in technology will prove to be a valuable asset in students’ lives.

Any questions about the implementation of technology in 2019 can be directed to the school office.

Last Day Activity

We had a wonderful end of term afternoon at the Benalla Rocket Park, celebrating a very successful year.  Looking forward to 2019.

Uniform

New Sports Uniform

A reminder that the Sports Uniform will change in 2019 and parents are advised to hold off replacing Sports items until January. The new uniform can be viewed on our website under the Uniform Guide.
