We are proud of our strong ethos of a caring, inclusive learning community where every child is treated with kindness as a valued individual. Students have opportunity to develop as courageous, accepting and resilient individuals and are encouraged to take responsibility for their own excellence as citizens of good character.

Our students attend innovative and engaging classes facilitated by highly effective and caring teachers and education assistants. We have a strong focus on developing literacy and numeracy skills of every student through a balance of explicit teaching and cooperative learning challenges provided by exemplary teaching staff. Students are offered a range of subjects including Japanese, Noongar, Physical Education and Media taught by specialist teachers. Students are encouraged to think critically and develop problem solving skills through core subject academic programs and to develop personal interests and talents through a diverse range of subjects. Well-established community partnerships give students opportunities for real-life learning, engaging them in relevant and meaningful experiences. This includes local business and organisations supporting our school to offer Work Place Learning and School Based Apprenticeships in Year 10.
