Enrolments 2021

Thank you to parents and grandparents who recommend our school to others in the community.  We have had a few enrolments over this past week that are a direct result of an existing family recommendation.  Your positive and kind words to others about the school are greatly appreciated.

We are currently focusing our enrolment efforts on Pre-Kindy for 2021.  Please encourage family members, friends and neighbours to consider Matthew Gibney Catholic Primary School for Pre-Kindy.



Parents are reminded that absentee notifications need to be sent through to the administration office prior to 9.30am in order to avoid an SMS message being sent out.  Parents emailing their class teacher about an absentee are asked to copy the administration office email into the message.
