Lockers

Lockers are available for students to use at the College. To apply for a locker, students are required to complete a locker request form. The cost of hiring a locker is $20 per annum. This fee will be applied to the student's fee account.

Mobile Phones

It is not appropriate for students to use mobile phones or electronic music/game players during the school day. Mobile phones must be turned off during classes unless instructed to use them by a teacher. In times of emergency, students are able to contact parents from the College Office. iPods and other personal music players may be used by Year 11 and 12 students in the Senior study areas and Library only. If mobile phones and electronic music/game players are being used in class time they will be confiscated from the student and kept in the school office until the end of the school day. Students should not call parents from their mobile phone if they are sick. The student should present themselves to the office where staff will admit them to Sick Bay and contact their parents.

School Sport

School Sport is held every Friday afternoon and is compulsory for all students in Year 7-10. A wide variety of sports are offered. For those who are taken to venues outside the school for sport, a note from a parent must be given to the supervising teacher if the student is to be dismissed from the venue and not return to school. If a parent/guardian collects a student from sport they are required to personally inform the teacher.
