The students are encouraged to show respect for themselves, each other, the staff and the school community. The school caters for children from kindergarten to Year 6 in an early childhood and combined middle and upper primary class structure. The low student-to-staff ratio and multi age grouping ensures students receive opportunities to both work independently and collaboratively with their peers, as well as supporting student needs for remediation and extension.

Students are offered a range of whole school programs. Specialist areas include Instrumental Music and Science, with a visiting specialist teacher, and Indonesian as a Language Other Than English (LOTE), studied through the School of Isolated and Distance Education (SIDE). This has enabled students to receiver a high quality of education from teachers with specialist qualifications and experience in these subject areas.
