Young and talented staff bring to our school enthusiasm and passion. They are supported by more senior staff with extensive skills and experience. Together, the staff are committed to developing in students, sound literacy and numeracy skills and follow whole school evidence-based practices.

Children come to our school from a diverse range of backgrounds. We understand that each child is unique and has their own special qualities. We provide a strong pastoral care program which includes the services of a school psychologist and a school chaplain.

We love having parents involved in our school and in their children's education, and we develop strong and positive relationships in the community. Activities during the year like parent information sessions, parent-teacher interviews, open nights and concerts, allow parents to interact with class teachers and be part of their children's learning. We have a dedicated and pro-active School Board and P&C.

We keep parents up-to-date through our newsletter, text messages, Connect and a broadsheet which is given out at the start of each term.

Our modern classrooms and facilities are complemented by attractive grounds.

We welcome you to our school.
