What we offer

Each school in NSW offers something slightly different depending on the community. Here's what we offer for you.

All students from K-6 have the opportunity to participate in weekly singing lessons with our choir teacher Miss Tanis. Our school choir perform at various school events as well as within the wider community at the Coffs Harbour Eistedfod and Education Week performances at Park Beach Plaza. 

We also offer private music tuition in a range of instruments such as piano, guitar, clarinet and percussion. 

Gumbaynggirr Language Lessons

Our students engage in weekly lessons taught by local Gumbaynggirr language tutors where they enjoy learning basic Gumbaynggirr phrases, words, stories and songs. Our Gumbaynggirr language program is growing each year and provides great opportunities for all of our students to deepen their understanding and connection to local Aboriginal culture.   

Canteen

All canteens in NSW public schools must meet certain requirements. These include providing more healthy food and drink options – to make the healthy choice an easy choice for students. Visit Healthy school canteens to learn more.

Our school canteen offers a range of healthy options to supplement school lunch boxes. The canteen is run by parent volunteers and is open during recess and lunch each Friday. Lunch orders are not available for recess, however students may buy a selection of items from the canteen during recess time. 

Our lunch meal deal options are sent home weekly with our newsletter, so keep an eye out for weekly specials. 

 

Uniforms

When students wear a school uniform, they feel included in our school community.

Students, teachers, parents and carers, as well as members of our local community helped develop our school uniform to make sure it:

  • meets the requirements of occupational health and safety, anti-discrimination and equal opportunity legislation

  • includes items that are affordable, comfortable and made from easy-care and easy-wear fabrics

  • is appropriate for the full range of school activities

  • is suitable for all body shapes.
