Dogs Are Not Allowed on School Grounds.
Did you know it is ILLEGAL to bring dogs and other animals into any school grounds in New South Wales? You can be fined up to $1,100 (ten penalty units) for doing so.
Section 14 of the Companion Animals Act (1998) prohibits dogs on school grounds except where the Principal gives permission. If permission is granted, dogs must be kept on a leash when in school grounds.
Dogs are not allowed on school grounds for many reasons, most are common sense today, but to list a few:
The only dogs that are allowed on school grounds are police dogs, assistance animals (guide dog, reading dog, etc) or a corrective services dog.
As a Government school, we are bound by the legislation of the Animal Welfare Policy to enforce and report on any violations.
We understand that there are moments when you want to take your dog for a walk and the beginning, or end, of the school day works out to be an ideal time. But please, organise another time to take your dog for a walk that wont bring them onto school grounds.
Thank you for your understanding of this matter.

Our New Website.
Welcome to our new look website, complete with a much easier to remember URL, too! We're all still learning the ropes with the new service, but we're all confident that you'll appreciate the new design.
Like our old website, all school news and relevant information can be found here. You'll still find our newsletters, information about Kids Matter, classes and overall school information for potential, new enrolments.
We hope you enjoy the new site as much as we did rebuilding it.
