Lower School Years 7, 8 and 9

Lower School is located in E Block. Our Student Support Officers, Kylie Kenworthy, Lea Carmody and Robyn Searle provide students in Years 7, 8 and 9 with a focal point for general enquiries, management of the Sign In and Leave Pass systems, lost property, student lockers and matters relating to uniform. Students are welcome to utilise Lower School before or after school, or during recess and lunch to make appointments or to request support or assistance.

The Lower School Deputy Principal, Donna Gardiner, Lower School Manager, Callum Millard and  our Lower School Coordinator, Sam Siney reside in the Lower School Centre. Year 7 – 9 parents should contact them in relation to the academic development, behaviour and well-being of their students, including those with specific needs and new students transitioning into Years 7, 8 and 9.
