Message from the Principal
What an amazing start to the year. All students looked very smart on the first day and continue to look great. ACC views uniforms as a key element in fostering a sense of unity and equality amongst the student body. This sense of unity is something that is very important and that we want to be extremely proud of here at ACC.
It was lovely meeting everyone over a BBQ meal at our Parent Invitation evening. I hope that everyone has a greater understanding of what we are aiming to achieve through our teaching and learning programs.
Over the coming weeks we have some important events. Our yearly Swimming Program starts on Monday, February 19 and continues for 2 weeks. It is a fantastic program and one that is very important to all children.
Also, in making sure that our teaching and learning program is at its very best, ACC run ACER testing twice a year. This testing shows us what we need to do in helping each individual child reach their full potential.

Welcome New Students
We would like to welcome 2 new students to our school, Gabby and Grace. We look forward to getting to know them and their family and we wish them all the best in their schooling experience.
New entrance and exit for students
We would like students - where possible - to enter and exit the school via the stairwell at the bottom end of the school. This will help movement around the school flow a lot easier.
Drop off and Pick up Locations
When dropping your children off and picking them up, can we ask that all parents/carers please do so either from the main carpark or Cornwall Crescent. We appreciate your assistance in this.
We are enjoying seeing all our students look so smart in their new uniforms and we are off to a great start for the new year.
Please be sure to check the notice that was sent home regarding uniforms and what is to be worn for summer at the moment. You can also view all these guidelines on the school website at
For all new uniform orders, you will need to log into your EStore account on the website and order that way. If you have not received an email to be able to do so please contact Mrs Richardson for assistance. You might want to look at order a jumper for your child soon as the weather is cooling down.
Considering that all uniforms are brand new could we please ask that you name all your childs items clearly to save them being mixed up.

Prep - 2 Wednesdays

Coles Sports in Schools Docket
We are collecting the Sports in Schools dockets from Coles this term and through until July.
Please spread the word to family and friends to keep their dockets for us so we can earn some fantastic new sports equipment for the school.
