The school operates with a strong Parents and Citizens Committee which is progressive and supportive of the school. We have a significant Aboriginal population, and focus is maintained to ensure the needs of these students are met, that Aboriginal culture and history are celebrated and taught appropriately, and that positive relationships exist and will continue to develop with the Aboriginal community.
