about us
principal's message

The school has a reputation for providing a positive, caring environment, which promotes and celebrates endeavour and the pursuit of excellence.

545 prides itself on being a supportive, friendly and caring school. We have a happy relaxed community atmosphere that fosters a strong and active partnership between students, staff, parents and local community.

The traditional Maypole Dance, performed each year since 1893 by senior students at the annual Garden Party, symbolises the link between our school and the community that has developed over a number of generations.

 

 

The warm feeling of "belonging to 545" is evident in the children, parents and teachers working cooperatively in the education of our children. The school has a reputation for providing a positive, caring environment, which promotes and celebrates endeavour and the pursuit of excellence.

Schooling takes place in a combination of old and new buildings, which include an art/craft room, library/resource centre with state-of-the-art technology facilities, a large gymnasium/hall and music room. Each classroom is equipped with multiple networked computers for student use.

The school also has beautifully landscaped gardens which continue to be further developed, grassed play areas, netball/basketball court, rebound wall, cricket nets and adventure playgrounds for junior, middle and senior school students.
