OUR LEARNING

 

Our students finding success in their learning is something that we take very seriously. We priortise developing creative, engaged learners.  We make frequent use of our learning spaces outside the classroom and out of the school gates. The best and most successful kind of learning occurs when   your child is  keen to come to school and participate and collaborate with others. Our school is caring, inclusive, and non-discriminatory.  We strive to create useful relationships with the wider school community that will assist our students personal growth. Our staff is keen to work with parents and caregivers as key partners in their child's unique learning journey.
