On the right side of the webpage is a slogan that we have adopted to make students think about what they post to social media. Posters with this slogan have been posted around the school and the community. Announcements are also being made daily to ensure students are aware and are responsible for leaving their "Footprint" on any form of social media and the negative impact and possible legal implications it can have.

Any student from grade 7 - 12 can stay from 3 - 4 on Mondays and Wednesdays throughout the school year. This is a great opportunity to catch up on work and/or get some help in a subject area. Students can receive assistance with revision of their class work, homework or with their upcoming assessment tasks.
Some benefits of tutoring include:
- Students may not always feel comfortable asking questions in front of his or her peers while in the classroom. Tutoring provides an environment free of distractions, with fewer students and disruptions around so your child is better able to focus on learning.
- Self-esteem and confidence will increase through tutoring, by providing the resources and skills he or she needs to excel in school.
- Tutoring programs can help your child develop study and learning skills that will help set up your child for success for his or her entire life.
