Centenary Labyrinth and Official Opening

Our Centenary Labyrinth was officially opened on Thursday 8th September at 12.30pm. The labyrinth has been created in the grounds in the front of the school near the library. It incorporates engraved pavers, where students, families, ex-students and staff can leave their mark and memories. To ensure your name and memories are forever part of our school, purchase an engraved individual or double paver. If you have any enquiries about the pavers please contact  the school office. As orders are received they will be included in the Labyrinth.
