School Board 2022

The Board is responsible for overseeing the school's strategic direction. School boards must observe Directorate directions and ACT Government priorities and all legislative obligations. If you would like to contribute to the governance of the school this would be the perfect opportunity.

Nominations will open on Monday, 7 February 2022, for the following positions on the School Board.  Each term will be for a period of two years:

  • 1 staff member;
  • 1 local community member; and 
  • 1 student member (year 7-9). 

Note: With changes this year to the Education Amendment Act 2020, as a school without a P&C association, we need to first advertise for a local community member. If we get no nominations for a local community member, then we re-advertise the vacancy as a parent member.

Nomination forms will be available from the Front Office from Monday 7 February.

For more information visit the website or contact the Assistant Returning Officer, Ruth Mahon via email,

Lockdown Food Delivery

Dear parents and carers

We understand that with a growing number of people in quarantine or isolation that some households are finding it difficult to get groceries delivered in a timely manner due to demand.

Please see if you can get a friend or family member who isn’t subject to quarantine or isolation requirements to do a grocery shop for you and leave it on your doorstep.

However, if you need to order home delivery, there are a range of options to consider when ordering groceries.

As well as the major supermarkets, a number of other grocers and independent supermarkets also offer delivery.

For further information go to:
