Principal's welcome

The school is currently undertaking a series of upgrades to school facilities and Dormitory’s. This work will continue throughout 2019.

By the middle of the year we hope to have both Mutch and Breakwell dorms refurbished , including painting, carpets and furniture.

Following this the school will work with the department to ensure that all students have suitable and appropriate accommodation facilities.

This would mean the long promised building of a new dormitory for female students in the school.

The completion of an exclusion fence for kangaroos around the main part of the school remains a priority and should start in term 2 this year. 

The drought continues to have a serious effect on the school and its students.

Any family that finds themselves in a difficult situation needs to contact myself for any assistance available.

Numbers are down this year and those students that have left due to financial considerations have been asked to reapply when circumstances change.

The priority of the school is the safety and wellbeing of all students and the school is continually looking at ways to improve available resources and programs.

Representatives of the schools P&C is working closely with the school in overseeing these initiatives with further meetings in term 2 this year. 

Last year’s excellent HSC results with several students placing in the top 5 in the state in subjects remains an inspiration for current HSC students.

Although we can’t hope for such outstanding success every year we expect our current Year 12 cohort to do  themselves and the school proud.
