Dear Families,

Thank you for expressing interest in attending the upcoming Year 6 to 7 Parent Information Evening. We have had an overwhelming response from prospective families, which has resulted in our capacity being reached for this event. In response to this, a second Parent Information Evening will be scheduled for early Term 2, and relevant details communicated via our website and primary schools to ensure you do not miss this opportunity.

Please consider attending our upcoming Open Nights, scheduled for 23 & 30 March from 5.30-7.30pm to meet key staff, hear from our Principal and tour our new Middle School, General and Digital Learning and STEM buildings.

  

2020 Aberfoyle Park High School Yearbook – Publication Delayed

Unfortunately, due to the delay of several school events because of COVID-19, and the subsequent effect on printing timelines, the 2020 Yearbook will not be available until 2021. We expect to receive the Yearbook from the printer in late March and will distribute it to students who have purchased a copy then.

 

International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme

We are excited to announce that Aberfoyle Park High School’s application for candidacy for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme has been approved. 

Aberfoyle Park High School is a candidate school* for the Diploma Programme. We are pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy: a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education that we believe is important for our students. 

* Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP).
