2020 Prep Enrolment and Transition

School Tours for Prospective 2020 Preps 

We extend an invitation to all parents considering a quality educational environment for their children to contact the school to arrange a personalised tour. During these tours, you will have the opportunity to visit our classrooms to get a feel for our school and see our school in action. We are taking tours for interested families for Prep for 2020. Tours run on Tuesdays at 9.30am.

To organise a tour of the school and to meet our school Principal, James Penson, please contact the office for a booking

via email or phone 03  9435 4181 .
