From the Principal

I might be a little biased, but I think our children are the best!

Last week, for the first time ever, our ACC Senior choir sang at the Dale Fest. They were really nervous, yet they performed their two songs with confidence. Even the audience of over 150 children, teachers and parents clapped along when our ACC choir sang Jailhouse Rock, and cheered loudly at the end.

Mrs Watson is to be congratulated for developing these talented students into a team of performers of whom we can be proud.

We read in the bible that Jesus told us to be like children - curious, adventurous, willing to learn new things and have new experiences. We can then call ourselves lifelong learners, expecting to be inspired and stretched in our thinking, and enjoying all that life offers us. (Jesus told the disciples)

"Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it."
Mark 10:14-15


The next P&F meetingwill be held on Tuesday 9th October at 6:00pm.

Childminding will be available, however, please email Joan at [email protected] to book a place.

Enrolments for 2019

This is the time of the year when we begin to plan for the staffing and resources we will need to achieve maximum learning in 2019. Places are filling up fast, and we are excited about our continued growth, and hope you are too.

If you have a family member, friend, neighbour or colleague who has Primary aged children who would benefit from joining our incredible learning community, let them know we are now open for 2019 enrolments.

Bring them in to meet Mrs Burrage, who will be happy to show them around.
