Student banking

Students who wish to use this service can obtain forms from the school office to open an account with the Commonwealth Bank. Students bring their bank books to school on Friday and these are returned to them the same day.

Sharing program

We are part of the Blacktown Learning Communities which includes a Sharing Program whereby selected students are given the opportunity to explore a variety of day courses at other schools. These courses include creative arts, mathematics, writing, computer education and are intended for students with a great interest in that subject.

Environmental education

Our school promotes Environment and Sustainability programs with the inclusion of our vegetable garden, worm farms, chickens and fruit trees. We re-use food scraps for our worm farms and chickens and our students regularly receive the profits from our vegetable garden and eggs from our chickens.
