The Board of Trustees received the confirmed report from ERO’s recent visit to the school in August 2016. The report indicates the school is well placed to sustain and improve its performance and ERO is likely to carry out their next review of our school in four to five years. We are very proud of our report; it acknowledges the Board and Staff for the work they do to ensure we remain a high performing school within our community.
