Below we have provided a short history of the major moments and stages that have brought us to where we are today. There has been a lot of hard work by so many parents, family, friends and volunteers as well as generous contributions from individuals and businesses. Financial support has also been received from Commonwealth, State and Local Government through grants. Our thanks goes to them all.

The journey has and continues to be a huge undertaking that required becoming familiar with shire requirements, planning applications, neighbourhood approvals, Office of Non-Government Education processes, grant applications, building construction, landscaping and renovations. There have been many high and low points, but these images and words are provided to celebrate our successes and achievements. By keeping a positive mind helps us to not only appreciate but continue to find ways to improve the environment we have worked so hard to produce for our children.
