Letters will also be going home in the coming weeks.

  • Current students that were in Robert Ogilvie catchment and now fall within Alwin Holland catchment have the choice of Alwin Holland or Robert Ogilvie. Parents must indicate preference to their current school by March 13, 2020. If no preference is indicated by the deadline the next school will be Alwin Holland.
