AS A SCHOOL WE VALUE:
Students as independent and empowered learners.
Self belief, self worth and mutual respect between all members of our school community.
A strong sense of belonging and connectedness enabling our students to become resilient and active members of their community.
A strong home/school partnership and a positive school spirit.
The school strives for social, emotional and education excellence in an environment where children of all ages mix cooperatively. We encourage our staff, students and parents to value diversity and promote the development of individual stengths and talents.
Students develop leadership and social responsibility through Junior School Council, the House System, the Peer Support programs and other cross age activities. The school practises the Assertive Discipline model which focuses on positive behaviour leading to students respecting the rights and property of others, stresses the right to educational opportunity while fostering self discipline and social responsibility.
Our schools commitment to fostering self worth and self belief in all our students is further highlighted by our Student Well Being and Empowerment Charter priority.
The school has an extensive range of equipment and resources to support learning programs.
The approach of the school is to organise year levels into straight grades, unless the number of students necessitates the formation of composite grades of consecutive year levels. Skilled, enthusiastic and committed staff, use a range of innovative and proven teaching practices. This provides the best possible learning environment allowing each child to work towards his/her personal best.
