Is your child leaving Freyberg? 

Are you moving out of the area?

Please let us know!  If you are moving or your child will be enrolling at a new primary school in the New Year, please notify the office staff.  We are currently in the very early process of finalising classes for next year and this will enable us to have accurate numbers for classes in 2021.

Organisation for 2021

Due to significant roll growth we are unable to accommodate parent requests for teachers or specific classes for 2021.  However, if you have information regarding your child's learning that may be valuable in placement we would encourage you to contact our senior management staff - Ms Maria Dopheide if your child is a Year 0 - 2, Ms Emma-lea Graaf if your child is a Year 3 - 4, or Mr Matt Allely if your child is a Year 5 - 6 student next year. 

Our senior management staff will try to assist as best as they can. 

Photolife Class Photographs - Thursday 19th November

Class photographs will be taken for all classes.  Photographing will begin promptly at 9 a.m. in the school hall beginning with the junior classes.

As was the arrangement in past years - payment for school photos is by pre-order only. Should you wish to order a photo please return the personalised order form (sent home today) with the correct cash/cheque/internet payment (direct to Photolife) to the school office. 

Photographs cannot be paid for using eftpos in the school office. If paying by cash please ensure you have the correct money.   Photolife will be collecting all prepaid orders at the conclusion of class photos. 

Last day for pre-ordering these photos Wednesday 18th November.

No late orders will be taken after this date or on the day of the photographs being taken.

Room 16 Chronicle Contribution

Thank you to our Room 16 students for sharing images from their fantastic visit by the Adlib Food truck.  Looking forward to seeing how the students manage the challenge to create their own foodtruck!  Guaranteed to have some super tasty food!

If your child has taken this home in error kindly return it to the school office where it will be returned to the rightful owner. 

Please ensure that all uniform items are named for ease of return should they become misplaced around our school grounds.
Children's Artwork Calendars - Online Ordering Only

This is one of our last fundraising ventures for the year.  Children have been busy creating wonderful art suitable to be made into calendars, diaries, greeting cards etc. 

Personalised order forms will be sent home to all students as soon as they arrive here at school.  To view your child's picture and order products go to and type in your child's personalised code which is found at the bottom of your child's order form. 

Thank you in advance for your support!
