Update from the Principal.
Welcome to my weekly update. It has been a very busy and exciting week at school as we ramp up our preparations for the start of the new school year!
On Monday, we visited the new school site in Dilmunia and were very impressed by the progress that has been made recently, the swimming pool has developed a lot, the new areas are taking shape and the structure for the second floor is visible. All fascinating to see and a great opportunity to show the site to our new teaching staff who have joined our team. It has been wonderful to visit the site a few times already to see the amount of hard work and dedication the builders/construction workers are putting into our new school home to ensure it is ready on time. Walking around the campus and then visiting the Dilmunia mall, viewing the surroundings, the views and friendly environment, left a fantastic warm feeling as it all takes shape. Our students will have many new opportunities ahead.
With our Orientation Day and events planned for the first week back, the momentum is gathering as we countdown to the start of the year. It is going to be a very special year ahead as we welcome back our full events, provision of clubs and hope all students and staff are learning on site this year in classrooms without the need of virtual learning.
A few updates to share with you below:
- Communication – There will be an update from the Principal each Thursday from school, latest news on the website, a school newsletter (coming soon), first Thursday of each month for coffee with the principal and many exciting school events coming up on our events page on the website.

Our school leaders have returned from holiday and are busy planning the training sessions, activities and first days back for our staff and we can’t wait to see everyone. With the new building, on site learning, new families, a Year 7 group and a growing school we have so much to look forward to!
Have a wonderful weekend!
