We celebrate student success through programs such as Aussie of the Month, School Wide Expectations and special Reward Assemblies, where our students are acknowledged for their best efforts both in and out of the classroom. Through a comprehensive transition program students move easily from Year 6 into Secondary School where each student has an Advocate Teacher to support them in their daily school life.

A recent upgrade to the Art, Music and Primary classrooms gives students a leading edge in developing their skills. Children benefit from the opportunity to utilise specialist facilities including Science, Visual and Performing Arts, Home Economics, Music and Design & Technology Centre. The Kindergarten and Pre-Primary children enjoy their own outdoor multi-purpose activity area.

Teachers utilize Interactive White Boards in all classrooms and student access laptops to facilitate learning. Our school is well resourced and students benefit from the use of up to date curriculum materials and equipment to enhance learning experiences.

Parents, Carers, families and the broader community play a vital role in supporting successful learning outcomes for our children. We engage parents and the community to work with us to maximize student learning outcomes.
