We aim to nurture a strong partnership of learning between school and home, and we fully embrace the involvement of families in the life of the college.
Our Port Parents and Friends Association brings families together for social events, fundraisers and to support learning programs within the college.
All families become ‘Port Parents’ when they enrol their children and family connections are strengthened through our joint ventures and the time we share together.
We take pride in our location in the heart of the new Fishermans Bend Innovation Precinct and look forward to working with neighbouring businesses and organisations to build community connection.
