We have a little over 200 students at our school in classes ranging from Kindergarten to Year 6.
Having celebrated 150 years of public education (we are now 170 years old), our school is listed as one of the oldest schools in Australia.
The school has two house teams that are named after important features of our school; Oak and Phoenix.
We have a large oak tree in our playground. We all eat lunch under it and play under the shade of it’s large, leafy branches. It is even older than the school!
There have been two fires at the school but each time the school has risen like a Phoenix.
We have a room named after the phoenix. This is used by our after school care students.
We also have an Oak room. We use this for our Flying Start lessons.
We use the phoenix as the symbol for our school:
This is our oval. Lots of people come up here to play sport and run around. There are some garden beds next to the oval and sometimes students get to water them and eat the fruit and vegetables. We also have apple trees growing behind the fence.
We have a beautiful rose garden with lots of different types of roses. It’s a lovely quiet place to sit and read or think!
WE ARE A MOVE WELL EAT WELL SCHOOL!
This means that we have water only to drink at school and that we have an extra fresh fruit or vegetable break throughout the day. Our canteen has reached gold accreditation for the food it serves and we have 15 minutes of daily P.E as well as our normal Phys Ed lessons.
