Our Local Community

As a people orientated community, we value the involvement of parents and friends. We recognise that through genuine relationships with parents and the wider community we will together build more than a school.

We take pride in being an active part of our community of Johnston and Palmerston, and look forward to being a part of life here for generations to come.  Those involved in the College will be concerned with the nurturing and well being of all who are associated with the school community.

How can I get involved with the College?
