Peter Garett talking to kindergarten students

We were very excited to receive a visit from The Hon. Minister Peter Garrett MP and the ACT Education and Training Minister Joy Burch MLA.  They were both impressed at the visual impact and design of our school. Minister Garrett was particularly impressed with our strong growth in student achievement.

Both Ministers were here to launch new national funding initiatives in the form of National Partnerships for schools like ours. Minister Garrett and Minister Burch even dropped in and had a chat with Ms Vicol's kinder class. They look like they were having fun!
