Chevallum – The First 100 Years, tells the story of our school from only 12 students in a building built by parents in 1921, through to our modern school of 476 students in 2021. We hope you will enjoy reading about the development of our school and how it and the world has changed over 100 years. The book also contains a number of personal stories written by former students and staff from the 1920s, 1950’s, 1960’s, 1980’s and the 1990’s, which provide a window into the past.
Our school produces an e-Newsletter each fortnight which is available to enrolled families. Individual family groups may also send home their own specific newsletter from time to time in relation to special class events or activities. Information on recent events, successes and school activities can be found on our News page.
The outline below gives a broad overview of annual school events, but is by no means inclusive of all activities undertaken by individual classes and interest groups. A more detailed calendar for each term, listing precise dates and times, is posted when required. Term calendars are also sent home via our newsletter and are available at the office on request.
