Parent Conference

Biennial Event for Parents

Our 2nd Parent Conference was held on Saturday 18th January 2020. The next event will be in the early part of 2022. These events are mainly for our parent body so we can support them with various issues facing every parent. We do open up the events to the general public once our parents have been given the opportunity to book tickets and we also have other schools send staff as part of their development.
