  1. During Period 1 and Period 3 on Thursday and Friday, students will be asked to complete a school survey. Grade 11 & 12 students will complete it in P1 while Grade 9 and Grade 10 students will complete it in P3. Instructions will be given to you by your classroom teachers in the appropriate period.

    We will be running an online school clothing store for the first time. The store will go live online on Monday and it will be accessible from the school website. Some changes for this year

    • Delivery will be made directly to people’s homes
    • A small portion of the proceeds will go to support the schools Youth in Philanthropy program which works with the Altona Community Foundation to support local charities
    • Students can bring back receipts to be reimbursed for purchases from their current fundraising account
    • Students with significant amounts of fundraising can request a gift card to be set up to pay for their orders
    • Samples will be brought in for people to see sizing, but we won’t be able to allow people to try them on

    More information will come out on Monday when the store opens.
