Inter-school Carnivals

Each year, our school participates in an inter-school competition with other Christian schools of like faith twice a year. In Term 1, there is a swimming carnival held at Engadine Leisure Centre and in Term 3, an athletics carnival is held at Georges Hall. Only competing students are required to attend these events.

Spring Fair

Every two years, the school hosts a Spring Fair in Term 3 for the entire school, incorporating food stalls, carnival games, activities and prizes, musical presentations, various booths, and displays highlighting student’s work throughout the school year. The event is a Fundraising event for the school and an opportunity for the House teams to obtain points through food and game stalls. All family, friends and visitors are welcome to attend.

Each year in term 3 the school has “School Photo Day”.  All staff are requested to be at school by 7:45am for the staff photo.  If you do not work on the prescribe day, you are requested to come to the photo for staff and the class photo, but you are not required.
