For All Students:
Messages from the Principal
Zero Tolerance Policy
• It is with regret that I inform you that a student has been expelled from College having been found on site with drugs in their possession.
• If you require support in this area please talk to us.
We have had a number of complaints from neighbours about litter outside of the College. Neighbours have also complained about students sitting on steps and / or leaning on fences outside their houses.
• It is important that we keep positive relationships with our neighbours and that students are good ambassadors for the College.
• Do not litter on or off campus. Use the bins provided.
• Please respect our College and our neighbours' property.
