2021 classes

Our 2021 classes have been given Indigenous place names, which will lend itself to rich and deep learning this year. The current class structures and associated staff are:

Reference: Pirrama was the name for Pyrmont used by the original inhabitants, the Gadigal (or possibly Gommerigal) people.


Years 1/2 Tumbalong - Ms Bianca Carson (Monday - Wednesday); Ms Julie Miller (Thursday - Friday).        

Reference: The Eora people called Darling Harbour 'Tumbalong', meaning a place where seafood is found.


Years 2/3 Warrane - Mr Cody Benes

Year 3/4 Bennelong -  Mrs Ashleigh Kelly                                  

Reference: Woollarawarre Bennelong (c. 1764 – 3 January 1813) (also: "Baneelon") was a senior man of the Eora, an Aboriginal Koori people of the Port Jackson area, at the time of the first British settlement in Australia, in 1788.
