Students attend assembly weekly on Fridays in Primary School and on Wednesdays in Secondary School. Kindergarten, Year 1 and Year 2 (Stage 1) Assembly is generally held on odd weeks and Years 3 to 6 (Stage 2/3) on even weeks, but please be mindful that school events can impact on whether they are held. Primary Assembly is held in the Iona Performing Arts Theatre (when available) between 11:30am and 12:00pm.
Where possible, parents will receive personal invitations to special assemblies where badges or special awards are being presented to their child. There will be opportunities for parents to attend special events throughout the year.
