- Additional learning opportunities: individual or group, tennis, music and swimming lessons

- Extremely well resourced through an effective PTA
- We live by our motto of 'Aim High'
The school’s positive culture is strongly influenced by high quality teaching and the explicit promotion of values set in consultation with the community. Our six school values are:
Respect: Admire the good qualities of yourself and people - young and old. Behave in a way that shows you care about their feelings and well-being

Open Door Policy & Parent Involvement
We welcome parents/caregivers at all times and your involvement in our classroom programmes is appreciated. If you would like to join your child in classroom activities, please make arrangements with the class teacher. The types of things parents/caregivers have helped with include, listening to children read in the junior classes, helping make displays of children’s work, filing reading books, assisting the Eco team, assisting with school excursions/camps, cataloging library books and journals etc.
If you would like to discuss your child’s learning, we would appreciate it if you could make an appointment directly with your child’s teacher to ensure they are available.
