School Photo Day - Friday 28 May

Dear Families,

A reminder that our annual school photo day is coming up soon.

School photo day is on Friday 28 May 2021 and students are to come to school in full winter uniform.  No sports uniform on this day please.

Online ordering is the preferred method of payment.  To order online you need your child's unique 'shoot key' which is printed on their individual envelope.  Envelopes were sent home with students this week.

If you require a shoot key, please call MSP Photography on 6255 9208 or email

If you would like your children to have a sibling photo, you will need to complete a sibling envelope and return it to the front office.  Only families who have returned a sibling envelope will have their family photo taken on the day.

Spare envelopes and sibling envelopes are available at the front office.

Compass Sign In/Out Kiosk

Dear Families,

Thank you for your continued support as we implement the new Compass attendance system from Catholic Education.  

School starts at 8.55am and if your child/ren arrive late you will need to sign them in at the Front Office via the Compass Kiosk.  Please ensure your child/ren takes an orange 'Late Sign In' card to give to their teacher after being signed in.

If departing early, please sign your child/ren out at the Front Office via the Compass Kiosk and hand a purple 'Leaving Early' card to the classroom teacher.

Please support our Front Office staff who are doing their best to assist you and implement new system procedures.

We appreciate any feedback via email, which we will forward to Catholic Education where appropriate.
