2020 Term 2 Week 7
From the Principal
The Queen’s Birthday public holiday at the start of this week provided many in our community with an opportunity to enjoy a slightly longer break over the weekend and, for most people, that was probably as much thought as they gave it. However, for two members in our community, the public holiday was the time when they were announced as having received Queen’s Birthday Honours, and I would... read more

It is 150 years since the Port Adelaide Football Club commenced. In their anniversary year, they have been on top of the ladder for 12 weeks now. This may change this round.
