The school are striving to achieve a physically educated and physically active school community. With help from our teachers, students, parents and wider community we hope that in 2019 our school will be recognised as an official ‘Active School’. As always, when the school community puts our collective minds to something we can achieve big things. This will be no different. So with everyone’s help, ideas and support, we expect to be flying the Active School Flag with pride at the end of this school year.
